Re: Telstra refund

If Telstra “promised” you a refund, did they put that in writing or give you a reference number?.


You can follow it up with Support via the My Telstra app or messaging them at

Re: Telstra refund

I assume you got a letter stating that your service doesn't meet the speeds in your plan.


It gave you the choice of either changing down to a the lower plan and receiving a refund of the difference in cost between the two plans (not the total plan cost of the one you were on), or stay on the plan that you are on.


You needed to notify Telstra if you wanted to drop down to the lower plan and receive the prorata refund.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
