Problem getting order for new connection to pit

I rang telstra 3 weeks ago & unfortunately was obviously speaking with an international telstra representative. I explained our house has phone & data cables but there is no Telstra grey box on the house, the cables are not connected to the pit. They seem to understand but weeks later seems not. I cancelled the order 9 days ago and spoke to my local business centre who can organize the connection to the pit but the orgional order apparently doesn't want to cancel properly so the new order can't be placed. So what can I do? No one seems to be able to make the order cancel properly. It is a IT problem but no one is helping. Very frustrating.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you

Hi @tracey1972


Very sorry to read about your ongoing connection issues and failed orders. This is very disappointing to say the least.


If our teams are not able to resolve the issue I would recommend you raise a complaint and have a case manager assigned to your account. You can do so via the following link:
