Keeping you supported during COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

We’re here to keep you connected and up to date about COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Our number one priority is the wellbeing of our customers and team members. We encourage you to follow the guidance of the Australian Health Department on how to protect yourself.


We’ll also continue to keep you updated on Telstra Exchange as well as on the latest cybercriminals capitalising on Coronavirus (COVID-19) and what to watch out for.


You may also receive a legitimate text message from Telstra, with the following information: 
Coronavirus Aus Gov msg: To stop the spread, stay 1.5m from others, follow rules on social gatherings, wash hands, stay home if sick.


Due to increased containment measures announced by the Philippines Government, Telstra’s contact centre workforce has been reduced. This means there will be longer wait times for customers contacting us via phone or online messaging.  


Get access to online support to manage your account and services:

During this time, we want to help you find the support you need quickly to easily. Our online tools are some of the best ways to troubleshoot and resolve account and service issues, and can save you from the extended waiting times currently being experienced.

@AP456 that is definitely a scam, and has been around for years. They were trying to get you to install Teambinder (it was the Windows button that they wanted you to press) so they could access the computer remotely. The information that they were going to show you to convince you to give them access was just a registration key that is common to all Windows machines.


How to tell it's a scam? Telstra won't call you unless you have reported a problem first. The consultant will have access to your account information and would ask you to confirm your identity first.

Support?? You just charged me $15 for being a few days late. No reminder or anything. I also cannot get in touch with anyone regarding cancelling a redundant account that has not been used for nearly 12 months, but I have still been paying $50 per month. And you sent me a late payment fee? I will no longer be paying for the account I have tried to cancel, and I will not be renewing my internet or other mobile account in November. Good bye Telstra. Epic fail

You aren't interested in keeping us connected. If you were then you wouldn't redirect our calls to a messaging service.

What a thread,

Since when did supported mean cutting off customers from having any opportunity to actually speak to a Telstra staff member?

Since when did supported mean being reliant on a totally dysfunctional app that just sends you round and round in every decreasing circles.


Don't make me laugh.

Telstra stuffed up and disconnected my nbn and home phone, which I’ve had for almost 30 years, by mistake on 31/8/2020 then tell me that they have fast tracked a new connection to have it up and running ASAP. I have just read an email to tell me that it won’t  be connected until the 18/9/2020. And I desperately need my internet at the moment.....this is such a joke especially when it is Telstra’s fault

Hi Kerryg, that's no good to hear.


Let us know if the connection isn't up and running by the 18th and we'll chase it up.


Take care, Ollie.

I've been working at home since March, I ended up having to get a mobile booster installed to improve my indoor 4G coverage as it was just too frustrating missing and dropping calls all the time.


Its been rock solid since! very happy, but would have preferred not to have to spend the money.... but I never really expected to be working from home this much either. 


is the extra 25G data still available for mobile customers?
