How can I get notified of upcoming maintenance work?

I know that I can check for outages or maintenance work in my area by visiting but this is only useful once the maintenance has started/I am already affected. How can I get proactive notifications of upcoming maintenances?


I work from home and attend a lots of video calls etc. and I have been affected by a lot of NBN maintenances lately, but I never get warning that they are going to occur. This means that I am mid call and it drops out, need to switch to hotspot, fiddle around and rejoin.  This is disruptive.  Had I known that the maintenance was going to occur in a certain window I could have planned around this.


Do I need to sign up to something (what, where), or does Telstra not support proactive notifications of maintenances?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

You don't need to sign up or do anything to get notified of planned maintenance work. If Telstra knows of planned maintenance Telstra will send you a txt as well as sending a notification to the My Telstra app a few days before maintenance is planned to occur..

You could check your NBN network status on the webpage  - it also lists any Planned Maintenance.
