Service disruptions can be unpredictable— they can occur anytime whether you’re in the middle of an important piece of work, or when you’re simply trying to look up a fun fact to brag to your friends about. It can be incredibly frustrating when this happens and you might not have time to call us over the phone to report the problem.

With that said, here are a few ways you can report a fixed service fault online.

If you’re having problems with your home phone or internet connection, this tool can help you run diagnostic testing on your account. The tool can help identify what the issue is and then provide step-by-step instructions on how to fix it.


This tool and our Telstra Outages page (, are the two resources we recommend as first steps before contacting us directly to save yourself time, and potentially resolve any impacts to your service.
