Tbox on Telstra Business Broadband

Are there plans to allow full Tbox functionality over a Telstra Business Broadband connection? Our football club has a Telstra BizEssential bundle and because the broadband is Telstra Business and not Bigpond we cannot get the internet channels.

Was this helpful?

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

Business is business only.

I tried and it came down to the 13 digit Account number as well, so you can pay one off.

You have to register the box on line with bigpond, so you might just have to have a seperate Acc.

To get a T-Box and a T-Hub I had to close my business account and open one in my name!!!

They are separate profit organisations and only shear the infrastructure, not the customer hard ware. You won't be able to use the free bigpond green dot data or TV channels, but else will work. The Bigpond moves might work if you register for movie membership. This requires billing your phone bill or using voucher credits. 

I'm not a Telstra employee.
I'm a Wireless 3G/4G LTE/4GX Antenna Sub-contractor and these are my opinions and not of Telstra.

Nope. Nothing announced.

Hi JMW40,

 

While Technical Support is still available for the device, the T-Box is no longer an in-market device. Meaning we no longer sell or produce them. It is extremely unlikely then, that any changes will be made to the platform. 

 

Cheers, Tim
