Access request SMS delivered next day?



I turned on the parental control on my ADSL2 broadband, so there are blocking sites and access time settings etc to protect kids from using too much internet. It works all good, but there is one thing weird. When you try to browse an blocked site, the page is redirected to a Telstra's page in which you can enter the site to send a request to the owner to unblock the site. My setting of the request notification is via SMS, thus I will receive a SMS when kids want a site to be unblocked. I did receive the request SMS, but it came to my phone 12 hours later (from the time you enter the request)! Is this normal or I have missed some setting?

Re: Access request SMS delivered next day?


There are a number of reasons an SMS might be delivered late.
This can range from Coverage issues, to delays in the notification being generated by the Broadband Protect Service.


Has this issue only happened once, or is it an ongoing issue?
