Cancellation Notice required & Charges

1. How much notice do Telstra need to Cancel my home ADSL broadband bundle ?
IE. before they stop billing me for the service ?

2. What is the best way to cancel give that neither phone 132200 nor website seem to be helping today (Wed 22July20).
+ I have asked my new / next provider to retain my current home phone no.

Thanks,   Alan

Re: Cancellation Notice required & Charges

If you are porting your service, then you do not (and should not) cancel your Telstra service. If you cancel, then the port to your new provider cannot occur.


Only contact Telstra if they bill you for services after the porting to your new provider has occurred. You will receive a final bill after porting has occurred. Just check it to make sure they don't bill you for the period after the changeover.

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

No unexpected surprises

With direct debit, we’ll let you know before we take out your bill and give you a simple way to check it.

Spend less time worrying about bills, and more doing what you love.
