Why are you exiting my Service now?
We introduced Telstra Broadband Protect to better protect our broadband customers in June 2015.
Your Telstra Online Security service isn’t eligible to be migrated to Telstra Broadband Protect.
Why isn’t my Service eligible to be migrated to Telstra Broadband Protect?
If you currently have Telstra Safe Central, Free Anti-Virus or received Security via a free Promotion, Our Customer Terms for Telstra Online Security do not allow us to migrate your service to Telstra Broadband Protect.
If the BigPond username you used to sign up for your Telstra Online Security service isn’t associated with a Telstra ADSL, Cable or NBN service and/or your Account Number doesn’t begin with 2000 then we can’t migrate your service to Telstra Broadband Protect.
