  1. About this Statement

This Statement is effective 1st December 2017. From time to time we may need to change this Statement. If we do so, we will post the updated version on our Website, and it will apply to all of Your Information held by us at the time.

Complaint Handling Policy

  1. Introduction

We are committed to providing our customers with the best products and service. This policy details how we handle customer complaints in relation to our products and services. We will demonstrate fairness, courtesy, objectivity and efficiency in dealing with complaints.

This complaint handling process has been designed to comply with the Telecommunications Consumer Protection Code (TCP) (C628:2015). Implementation, operation and compliance of this process with the TCP Code is the responsibility of our Chief Executive Officer.

  1. Your legal rights

Nothing in this policy limits or detracts from your rights under the Standard Terms and Conditions, the Telecommunications Act, the Competition and Consumer Act or any other laws.

You do not have to follow the complaint handling procedures in this Statement; you can choose to take independent action to enforce your rights. However, we believe that our complaint handling procedures will provide a quick and effective resolution of your concerns and difficulties.

  1. How we will handle complaints

Our complaint handling policy aims to provide an efficient, fair and accessible mechanism for customer complaints.

Our Customer Service team will be your single point of contact; whether you wish to register a complaint about technical difficulties, billing issues, or Our Authorised dealers and staff.

Our objective is to resolve the vast majority of enquiries and complaints during the customer’s first call. Our Customer Service Representatives have the training and authority to deal with most of the problems or enquiries. It may not always be possible to resolve a complaint on the first call, for example, because call records have to be reviewed or enquiries made with our staff.

Our objective is that complaints that cannot be resolved during the first call will be resolved within the timeframes agreed with the customer.

To provide a check on the handling of complaints our supervisors will:

  • Randomly check records of complaints received by the Customer Service Representatives to ensure that a satisfactory solution been reached.
  • Call back a cross section of customers to discuss the handling of the complaint by us, with a view to understanding how we can do better; and
  • Review all complaints which have not been resolved within our timeframes, and determine what action is needed to resolve those complaints quickly.
  • Identify systemic issues and implement ways of improving our processes and the training of staff.
  1. How to appeal to senior personnel

If you are not satisfied with the way in which the Customer Service Representative has handled your complaint, you can request to be transferred to a supervisor. Where you have raised a matter with a supervisor, he or she will aim to resolve the complaint as soon as possible and within timeframes agreed with you. The supervisor will deal with you personally and not pass messages through other staff.

  1. Lodging complaints

You can lodge a complaint with us by Post, or by using the contact phone number or email address on your most recent invoice.

Customer Care

P.O. BOX 197

GREENSBOROUGH VIC 3088

We will acknowledge your complaint immediately if you complained to us over the phone, and within 2 working days if you have lodged your complaint through any other channel (for example: By email or post) including where you left a message with our afterhours messaging service.

When we acknowledge your complaint, we will give you a unique reference number or similar to enable you to easily follow up on your complaint. We will also give you an indicative timeframe for resolving your complaint. You can follow up on your complaint by using the contact phone number or email address on your most recent invoice.

We will endeavour to resolve all complaints within 5 working days of the complaint being received. If we are unable to meet this time frame we will advise you prior to this the reason for the delay and the proposed timeframe for resolution.

You can request your complaint to be looked at urgently:

  • if you have applied for being in financial hardship under our Financial Hardship Policy and the issue you are complaining about directly contributes to the Financial Hardship you are experiencing, or
  • if your service has been disconnected or is about to be disconnected and due process has not been followed.

In this case we will agree with you on how to address the issue and implement all required actions to fix the issue within 2 working days. If there is a delay, we will explain why, provide you with a new expected timeframe, and if it is a longer delay also inform you about your options for external dispute resolution such as the TIO.

  1. Monitoring the progress of your complaint

You will be provided with a unique reference number for your complaint, which you can use to track the progress of your complaint. You can monitor the progress of your complaint by calling our Customer Service Team.

  1. Proposed Resolution

If we propose a solution to your complaint, we will ask if you are satisfied with the proposed solution. A proposed solution must be accepted by you before we are required to implement it.

  1. Free of charge

We will not charge you for dealing with your complaint in most instances, and we will never charge you without telling you first.

We may charge you to recover our costs in very specific circumstances only, i.e. we may charge you where you

request information that was collected more than two years ago or where you request information that is not

free of charge as per our Standard Form Customer Contract or our Critical Information Summary (if applicable).

If cost recovery charges apply, we will tell you before charging you (and you may of course choose not to pay and discontinue your complaint) and we will inform you about your options for external dispute resolution, e.g. the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman (TIO).

  1. Taking appeals to external organisations

We believe that our internal appeal process will provide the quickest and most effective way to resolve complaints. If you are not satisfied with our review of your complaint, or with the way in which we have handled the complaint, you can ask the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman (TIO) to assist.

You can refer a complaint to the TIO at any time. You do not have to go all the way through our review process before complaining to the TIO. You should note, however, that the TIO service is intended as a last resort for telecommunications subscribers with complaints and the position of the TIO is that you should raise a complaint with Us before approaching them.

The intention of the scheme is that we try to settle the issue before it is taken to the TIO. If you believe that any complaint raises wider telecommunications policy issues or is outside the jurisdiction of the TIO then you may wish to raise it with the ACMA.

To lodge a complaint with the TIO you can call on 1800 062 058 or write to:

Customer Service Guarantee

We are committed to achieving customer service excellence. We comply with the legislated requirements outlined in the Telecommunications (Customer Service Guarantee) Standard 2011 (“The CSG Standard”) and issued by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA).

The CSG Standard specifies certain requirements to which service providers such as us, and our suppliers must adhere in relation to the provision and repair of Standard Telephone Services and appointments related to these activities.

  1. What types of services are covered by the CSG standard?

The CSG Standard applies to all telephone companies offering fixed line services and covers the Standard Telephone Service (STS), provided by Telstra (known as PSTN) and five specified Enhanced Call Handling Features.

These features are:

  • Call Waiting – enabling a customer to receive a second call on a telephone service while engaged on a call;
  • Call Forwarding – causing a call directed to a number to be redirected to a stored number;
  • Call Barring/Control – enabling a customer to control access to some, or all, network numbers before a call is established (this does not include network barring arrangements);
  • Calling Number Display – enabling a customer to identify the number of a calling party; and
  • Calling Number Display Blocking – enabling a customer to prevent the display of his or her number to a called party.

The CSG Standard applies to Residential and Small Business Customers with no more than five Standard Telephone Services. A customer does not include a carrier or a carriage service provider.

The CSG Standard covers:

  • connections and fault repairs of Standard Telephone Services and the five specified Enhanced Call Handling Features; and
  • Appointments related to these activities.

For connections, Standard Telephone Services are eligible regardless of what type of associated service is connected at the end of the service (e.g. internet or fax).

However, for repairs, only voice telephony faults are covered. This means that non-voice faults such as internet access or fax faults are not covered by the CSG Standard.

  1. What types of services are not covered by the CSG Standard?

The CSG Standard does not apply to data products, customer premises equipment, customer cabling, payphones, sophisticated business-oriented services, corporate virtual private networks, satellite services and mobile services. It also does not apply to activities past the network boundary point (NBP), including but not limited to, beyond the first telephone socket, the network termination device (NTD) or the main distribution frame (MDF) where applicable.

  1. When does the CSG Standard not apply?

The CSG Standard does not apply in certain circumstances, including the following:

  • When we, or our supplier, are required to undertake maintenance or upgrading of a facility or network that is used to supply any given service and we have given reasonable notice;
  • Where delays are due to circumstances outside our or our supplier’s control such as: damages to our or our supplier’s facilities by a third party; natural disasters or extreme weather conditions (e.g. bushfire,flood, cyclones etc.), or
  • Where delays are caused by us or our supplier needing to move staff or equipment to an area affected by circumstances beyond the control of us or our supplier, or
  • Where we, or our supplier, are unable to obtain lawful access to land or a facility and where we, or our supplier, is required to comply with any law of the Commonwealth, State, Territory or Local Government;
  • Where a missed appointment occurs over a period of connection or repair delay for which a CSG liability already applies;
  • Where you are connected by another carriage service provider to a Standard Telephone Service and request we supply that service, the CSG Standard does not apply in respect of the connection timeframe;
  • Where you have agreed to waive your right to CSG eligibility under the CSG Standard;
  • Where Enhanced Call Handling Features are not available due to existing network limitations;
  • Where you are able to activate the Enhanced Call Handling Features from your telephone handset or customer equipment;
  • Where you request connection of your telephone service and we have reasonable grounds for believing that you would be unable or unwilling to pay the charges for connection or use of the service, or
  • If you were disconnected for non-payment of a charge and we have not reached agreement for the payment of that charge;
  • If you withhold agreement to an appointment offered by us or our supplier;
  • If you fail to keep an appointment with us or our supplier; or
  • If you unreasonably refuse our Carrier access to your premises.
  1. The guaranteed connection time frames as set out in the CSG Standard.

We aim to connect your Standard Telephone Service and specified Enhanced Call Handling Features within time frames consistent with the CSG Standard. These time frames are based on the service location and the availability of telecommunications infrastructure and spare capacity we, or our supplier, can use to connect your service (see table below). Infrastructure refers to systems and facilities used in the provision of telecommunications services. It includes: radio distribution systems, network cables and lead-in cables to the customer premises.

Wherein we envisage a delay in supplying you with a Standard Telephone Service, we will notify you in writing of the reason for the delay and the expected time frame for completion of any infrastructure upgrade. We will also offer an alternative service arrangement such as a call diversion to a mobile or fixed telephone service.

You may be entitled to a CSG payment for every working day of delay beyond an agreed connection date. Please refer to “How much do we pay?” for more details.

We will apply the “guaranteed maximum connection periods “as set out below;

Service In-place connection New connection with New connection without
location infrastructure and infrastructure or spare capacity
spare capacity
Urban Within 2 working days Within 5 working days Within 20 working days
after request after request (equivalent to 1 month) after
request
Major Rural Within 2 working days Within 10 working Within 20 working days
after request days after request (equivalent to 1 month) after
request
Minor Rural Within 2 working days Within 15 working Within 20 working days
after request days after request (equivalent to 1 month) after
request
Remote Within 2 working days Within 15 working Within 20 working days
after request days after request (equivalent to 1 month) after

Please Note: An in-place connection is a connection of a Standard Telephone Service at a site where a previous working service has been cancelled by the previous account holder and is available for automatic reconnection or reactivation without the need for the service provider to do any other connection work at the customer premises, the local telephone exchange, or any places in between.

  1. Customer Service Locations (definitions)

The various demographic categories as outlined under the CSG Standard are:

Service location category Demographic size
Urban Township/community grouping of 10,000 people or more
Major Rural Township/community grouping of more than 2,500 people but less
than 10,000 people
Minor Rural Township/community grouping of 201 people or more but not more
than 2,500 people within a standard zone
Remote Township/community grouping of less than 200 people or
township/community grouping located outside a standard zone
  1. The guaranteed maximum fault repair periods specified by the CSG Standard.

We aim to repair faults or service difficulties on your Standard Telephone Service and specified Enhanced Call Handling Features within time frames consistent with the CSG Standard. Please note that the CSG Standard does not cover non-voice faults or service difficulties such as modem and fax dropouts.

We will repair faults and service difficulties within specified time periods based on the service location (see table). Where we envisage a delay in repairing your Standard Telephone Service, we will notify you in writing of the reason for the delay and the expected time frame for completion of any infrastructure upgrade. We will also offer an alternative service arrangement such as a call diversion to a mobile or fixed telephone service.

You may be entitled to a CSG payment for every working day of delay beyond an agreed repair date. Please refer to “How much do we pay? “For more details.

We will apply the “guaranteed maximum fault repair periods “as set out below.

Service location Time for repair*
Urban End of one full working day after report
Major Rural End of two full working days after report

Remote End of three full working days after report

*Service Restoration timeframes can be extended due to mass service disruptions where CSG will not apply. See https://www.telstra.com.au/consumer-advice/customer-service/mass-service-disruption

Please Note: The time for repair relating to “end of one full working day after report” applies to all service locations where the fault occurs due to an administrative error by the telephone company, or if the fault can be rectified without the telephone company attending customer premises or undertaking internal or external plant work.

  1. Appointments

We aim to keep agreed appointments in relation to connection and repair of your Standard Telephone Service and specified Enhanced Call Handling Features.

If we or our Carriers fail to keep an agreed appointment, you may be entitled to receive a CSG payment for a missed appointment. A new appointment may have to be arranged.

If an appointment time or location is changed either by you or by us or our supplier with reasonable notice of at least 24 hours, or by agreement, you are not entitled to receive a CSG payment.

For appointments, the CSG Standard allows the following grace periods as shown:

 

Service location Appointment period Grace period
All Locations Less than or equal to 4 hours 15 minutes
Urban and Major Rural Greater than 4 hours and less than None
or equal to 5 hours
Minor Rural and Remote Greater than 4 hours and less than 45 minutes
or equal to 5 hours

Please Note: The grace period is extended to 45 minutes, where there is a need to travel a long distance, such as in the case of Minor Rural and Remote locations.

Financial Hardship Policy

  1. Financial hardship

Financial hardship involves a situation where an individual person (not businesses) is unable, for reasons such as illness, unemployment or another reasonable cause, to meet their financial obligations to us, however they reasonably expect to be able to do so with an adjustment to their payment and / or service arrangements. If you wish to claim financial hardship and adjust your payment / service arrangements, please contact us. There are no charges associated with this service. Each situation will be assessed on a case by case basis.

  1. Our financial hardship policy

The purpose of this policy is to ensure that if we have customers who are experiencing financial hardship, we can work with them to pay their account over time whilst maintaining ongoing access for them to some telecommunications services.

  1. Definition

The Telecommunications Consumer Protections Code (C628:2015) defines Financial hardship as a situation where an individual person (not businesses) is unable, reasonably, to meet their financial obligations to us under their contract. However, they expect to be able to do so if their payment and / or service arrangements are changed. Financial hardship can take place over a limited timeframe or be long-term.

It can result from a number of factors including:

  • loss of employment, either for that person or a family member
  • family breakdown
  • illness, including physical incapacity, hospitalisation, or mental illness, either for that person or a family member
  • a death in the family
  • Unexpected or increased family commitments, due to circumstances such as the above.

You can claim financial hardship if you think you can reasonably expect to be able to meet your financial and contractual obligations to us by changing your payment / service arrangements. If you are experiencing payment difficulties from time to time, that is not a situation that qualifies as financial hardship and therefore for assistance under this policy. See our exclusions below.

Our policy aims to be flexible enough to accommodate the circumstances of each individual customer. If you wish to claim financial hardship and adjust your payment / service arrangements, please contact us.

  1. Information that is available

We can provide you with a summary of this policy either in writing or over the telephone if:

  • you ask for it
  • you indicate to us that you are in financial hardship, and/or
  • we consider that you may be eligible
  • All our reminder notices include information about this policy.
  1. Training

The staff responsible for discussing financial hardship payment arrangements with you are fully trained in this policy.

  1. Assessment and evidence of financial hardship

On request, we’ll assess your eligibility for assistance under our financial hardship policy. As part of this, we’ll take into account your individual circumstances. As part of that assessment, we may request supporting documentation from you.

We’ll only ask for this if:

  • it appears that the financial arrangements will need to be long term.
  • we consider the amount that needs to be re-paid is large or significant.
  • you have not been our customer for very long.
  • we are concerned that there is fraud involved.

We consider the following to be evidence of financial hardship:

  • evidence of an unforeseen change in your circumstances.
  • in some cases, evidence that you have met with and/or are accompanied by a recognised financial counsellor.
  • Documented evidence, such as a statutory declaration from a person familiar with your circumstances (family doctor, priest, bank officer etc). This information must meet the criteria of the Privacy Act 1988 in terms of how it has been collected and is used and retained.

We may not be able to make an assessment of your circumstances if you do not provide us with the requested information. We may use the information you provide as well as other information available to us. Once we received all required information, we will let you know within 7 working days whether you are eligible for assistance under our Financial Hardship Policy.

  1. Assistance from financial counsellors

In some cases, where we believe you are experiencing genuine and long-term financial hardship, we may ask you to seek assistance from a financial counsellor to discuss your financial situation. We believe some customers may benefit from the experience of a financial counsellor. The reasons why we may request that you seek their advice and assistance can include:

  • it is apparent that your financial situation is genuine, serious and permanent and you need expert financial advice and counselling.
  • it appears that you are paying us at the expense of other bills, and that you may need financial advice and counselling to ensure your bills are paid in the correct order of priority in order for you to maintain a reasonable standard of living. For example, it may be appropriate for you to work with the financial counsellor to decide the priority of the bills that need to be paid, and
  • we cannot agree a reasonable payment arrangement (i.e. the suggested payments and the length of time to meet your financial obligations) without a financial counsellor’s assistance and advice.

o Note: We won’t ask you to seek the advice of a financial counsellor in all the circumstances where a payment arrangement is being discussed, only where the conditions detailed above are involved.

  1. Establishment of financial hardship

Once it has been established that you meet our financial hardship criteria, we’ll agree a suitable arrangement between you, your financial counsellor (if you have one) and our Credit team. You will be asked to keep to this payment arrangement.

Conditions

  • you are an individual residential customer.
  • the financial hardship process will be reasonable to both you and us.
  • we want to maintain our relationship with you.
  • we’ll take into account your individual circumstances.
  • we’ll look to identify appropriate products or services for you that will enable you to retain a level of access and still manage your future communications spending.

The basic principle of any agreed financial arrangement is that the repayment should be sufficient to cover your expected future use of the service, as well as continuing to reduce your debt.

Your obligations

  • you acknowledge the debt and your obligation to repay the debt.
  • you’ll provide us with enough information for both parties to decide what constitutes a reasonable payment arrangement.
  • you accept responsibility for reducing your phone usage to a level that you are able to pay and you are prepared to take up relevant call barring options to achieve this.
  • you accept the restricted level of access that we negotiate with you.
  • you’ll make repayments to us as agreed under the financial hardship arrangement.
  • if you experience any further financial difficulty, you’ll tell us immediately and we’ll review your situation.

Our responsibilities

  • we’ll ensure that none of your outstanding debt is in dispute.
  • we’ll confirm that you are the person who is legally liable to pay the debt.
  • we’ll not take credit management action whilst financial hardship arrangements are being discussed.
  • if limiting access to services forms part of our agreement with you, we’ll ensure access is limited as agreed and that the limitations are explained.
  • the arrangements will be ones that you can meet.
  • we’ll look at waiving our disconnection and late payment fees.
  • we’ll monitor your compliance with the financial hardship arrangement.
  • we’ll not change the terms of the arrangement if you are meeting those terms.
  • we’ll clearly explain the terms of the payment arrangement to you.
  • we’ll ask you to contact us if your situation changes during the term of the arrangement.
  • we’ll be willing and able to review the terms of the financial hardship arrangement if you tell us that your circumstances have changed.
  • we’ll make sure you are fully informed of your rights and obligations under the arrangement.

We won’t undertake credit management action including listing of your debt with an external credit reporting agency whilst a financial hardship arrangement is being actively discussed with us or during the course of the financial hardship arrangement unless:

  • you breach the terms of the arrangement.
  • credit management action appears to be reasonable in the circumstances or
  • if you don’t stick to the terms of the arrangement and don’t notify us to re-negotiate, we’ll take reasonable steps to contact you or your financial counsellor (if applicable) before taking further credit management action.
  • if we can’t make contact, we’ll resume normal credit management action, including restriction or suspension of the service or termination of the contract. This action will be in accordance with our credit management policies and the credit management code.
  • payment arrangements for the settlement of all due balances must be made within a timeframe of 12 months.
  • if your payment request, after negotiation, remains at greater than 12 months, then you may be referred to an external credit reporting agency and your “statement of means” forwarded to the relevant agent.
  • documentation supporting your position must be on the official letterhead of the organisation assisting you with your claim.

Exclusions

  • Financial hardship does not apply to:
  • Customers who wish to negotiate time to pay their bill within a short period of time, usually 3 months.
  • People who are bankrupt.

Once we come to an agreement we will put this in writing via letter or email to you. You must inform us if your circumstances change (for better or for worse) during our arrangement.

We will not charge you for assessing your Financial Hardship circumstances or for administering the matter.

You must not use such services to send or distribute any content which is prohibited, deemed obscene or offensive or otherwise unlawful under any applicable Commonwealth, State or Territory law, including to send or distribute classes of restricted content to children or minors if that is prohibited or an offence under such laws.

Your failure to comply with these requirements may lead to immediate suspension or termination of your Internet Service without notice. If we have reason to believe you have used your Internet Service to access child pornography or child abuse material, we are required by law to refer the matter to the Australian Federal Police.

  1. Regulatory Authorities

You must label or clearly identify any content you generally make available using your Internet Service in accordance with the applicable classification guidelines and National Classification Code (issued pursuant to the Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games) Act 1995 (CT)) or any industry code which applies to your use or distribution of that content.

Commonwealth legislation allows the ACMA to direct us to remove from our Network and servers any content which is classified, or likely to be classified, as ‘prohibited’ content. We also co-operate fully with law enforcement and security agencies, including in relation to court orders for the interception or monitoring of our Network and systems. We may take these steps at any time without notice to you.

You must not hinder or prevent us from taking all steps necessary to comply with any direction from ACMA or any other law enforcement or security agency. You acknowledge we reserve the right to limit, suspend or terminate your Internet Service if there are reasonable grounds for suspecting that you are engaging in illegal conduct or where use of your Internet Service is subject to any investigation by law enforcement or regulatory authorities.

  1. Complaints about content

If you have a complaint about content accessible using your Internet Service you may contact the ACMA by filling out an online complaint form at acma.gov.au, emailing online@acma.gov.au or faxing your complaint to the ACMA Content Assessment Hotline Manager on (02) 9334 7799. Please note that all complaints to ACMA must be in writing. You may also report a complaint about content via email.

  1. Complaints about Spam

All internet and email service providers are required by the Internet Industry Code of Practice to maintain an “abuse@” email address (or other email address as notified by the service provider) to allow end users to report Spam. If you think you have been sent Spam by one of our subscribers, please contact us by emailing abuse@ausinternet.net.au. If you think you have been sent Spam by a subscriber of another internet or email service provider, you may report it by emailing that service provider at their “abuse@” email address or other email address as notified by the service provider for that purpose.

You can report or make a complaint about Spam you have received by contacting the ACMA by filling out an online complaint form at acma.gov.au or via the ACMA Spam Reporting System Spam Matters.

You may also make complaints to other bodies about Spam where the content is in some other way offensive or contrary to law. For example, you may complain to the ACMA about Spam that contains content you believe is offensive or relates to online gambling.

You can report a Spam message that contains fraudulent or misleading and deceptive content (for example, email scams) to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) via the ACCC website by phoning 1300 302 502 (business hours, Monday to Friday).

The Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) also deals with certain complaints about the contents of Spam messages, particularly with regard to fraudulent conduct by Australian businesses. The ASIC website outlines the types of complaints they deal with, and has an online complaint form: www.asic.gov.au (click on ‘Complaining About Companies or People’).

If you are concerned that your personal information has been misused to send you Spam, the Federal Privacy Commissioner recommends that you complain to the organisation first, especially if you know how to contact it and have had dealings with it in the past about other goods or services. If the matter is not resolved adequately, you can visit the Federal Privacy Commissioner’s website for details on how to make a complaint.

  1. Suspension or Termination

We reserve the right to suspend your Internet Service if you are in breach of this Policy, provided that we will first take reasonable steps to contact you and give you the opportunity to rectify the breach within a reasonable period. What is reasonable in this context will depend on the severity of the problems being caused by the breach (for example, if you commit a serious or continuing breach, it may be reasonable to immediately suspend your Internet Service without notice to you).

If we notify you of a breach of your Spam Obligations, we will, at your request and to the extent we are reasonably able, supply you with information as to the nature of open relays and suggested resolutions to assist you to comply with your Spam Obligations.

Our right to suspend your Internet Service applies regardless of whether the breach is committed intentionally, through misconfiguration, or by other means not authorised by you including but not limited to through a Trojan horse or virus.

If your Internet Service is suspended and the grounds upon which it was suspended are not corrected by you within seven days, we may terminate your Internet Service. In the event your Internet Service is terminated, you may apply for a pro rata refund of any pre-paid charges for your Internet Service, but we will have the right to levy a reasonable fee for any costs incurred as a result of the conduct that resulted in the suspension.

  • where the fault can be repaired on a Basic Telephone Service without external or internal plant work or the need to attend a premises – within one working day;
  • where the fault is that a Basic Telephone Service has been incorrectly disconnected because of an administrative error – within one working day;
  • where the Basic Telephone Service is in an urban area – within one working day;
  • where the Basic Telephone Service is in a major or minor rural area – within two working days; or
  • where the Basic Telephone Service is in a remote area – within three working days.

Services with faults can be diverted to a number of choice during the fault Condition. Call Costs may be applicable for any calls diverted. Faults that go beyond standard restoration times may be eligible for Customer Service Guarantee Rebates – See Customer Service Guarantee (in this Document).

  • A National Broadband Network (NBN) service, delivered as a resale of the AAPT National Wholesale Broadband Service (previously known as Consumer Broadband). “Consumer Broadband”

Product Details & Specifications

  • The NGN nbn™ service provides you with access to the government owned National Broadband Network as built by NBN Co. The aim of the nbn™ is to provide equal and ubiquitous internet access to Australian consumers and businesses.
  • Please note this product is a best effort, Traffic Class 4 or TC4, consumer grade offering – and should not be used for real-time, latency sensitive business applications.
  • NGN nbn™ connectivity may be provisioned using optical fibre cable, coaxial cable, copper pair usually used as a standard telephone line or fixed wireless technology depending on the technology available at the customers premises.
  • NGN nbn™ is offered using shared access networks. Data transfer rates, latency, latency variation (jitter) and line attenuation are dependent upon many factors, and may vary during the day, location or other factors. NGN nbn™ may not be suited to some applications that are sensitive to such network parameters.
  • Unless your Service specifies a static (i.e. non-changing) IPv4 address we may provide it using dynamic IPv4 addresses that change periodically. The periodic changing of dynamic IPv4 addresses is normal network behaviour and not a fault.
  • For Business Customers, Static IPv4 Addresses are available at an additional cost of $15.00 per month. Static IPv4 Addresses are not available for consumer customers.
  • There are no further IPv4 addresses available to an individual service from us. IPv4 addresses supplied by us remain our property and cannot be transferred to your new provider.
  • Unless specified on your Account Application, our nbn™ services do not include a nbn™ modem/router. You can provide your own nbn™ modem/router or purchase one from us.

Service Access Types

The NGN nbn™ is delivered to customers using a mix of technology types. The type of technology that will connect your customers to the nbn™ network will depend on your location.

The access methods available for this service are as follows:

  • The advertised speeds offer the theoretical speed options for the Service via the nbn™ UNI-D port on a Fibre to the Premise or Fixed Wireless service, and the line rate on a VDSL modem on a FTTB/N/C service. FTTB/N/C and HFC services have a speed range. For FTTB/N/C and HFC services nbn™ will only provide support for an End Users Service line rate speed that is below the bottom of the range (i.e. experiencing less than 25Mbps downstream on a 25-50/5-20 Mbps service.
  • For customers with an Existing nbn™ Fixed Wireless NTD, who wish to order a 25-50/5-20 service upgrade, this will only be available if a compatible NTD is available

^ Battery Backups are not included on all nbn™ access types – FTTP, FTTB/N/C, HFC or Fixed Wireless

NBN New Development Charge

The Australian Government have released a policy regarding charges for building new telecommunications infrastructure in development areas. Previously nbn™ were responsible for meeting the cost of providing fibre to new developments, however, this new policy stipulates the cost will now be passed onto both the developers and actual households that are being connected.

As of the 1st April 2016, nbn™ will implement a $300.00 charge for all connections made in areas they have identified as within the boundary of a new development. If you are in a greenfield or new development area, as determined by nbn™, and want to get connected to the nbn™ network, then the $300.00 fee will apply.

The new development fee will apply in the following instances:

  • The first connection at a premises in a newly developed area i.e. a suburb with no pre-existing telecommunications infrastructure.
  • The first connection(s) at a premises in an established area in the rare instance that a developer has increased the number of dwellings on the same plot of land e.g. demolished a single house and built a block of units.
  • New customers signing up for Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) services where there is no connection that has been established. In most cases these would be in newly developed areas.

Service Activation & Transfer of Services

  • For NBN FTTB/N/C, if there are no vacant or inactive copper lines to your premises, you can nominate a compatible phone line to be sacrificed for your nbn™ service. Once the phone line has been sacrificed, you will no longer be able to use it as a voice line and you may lose the telephone number. Otherwise a new line can be connected for your nbn™ and there will be a once-off installation charge of $299.00.

  • All speeds quoted refer to the sync speed, or line speed, of the service, with the exception of the AAPT Pipe Networks EFM access method, which is an “Up-to” speed. We are unable to make guarantees to the speed you will receive via AAPT Pipe Networks EFM.

  • Each one of these products come with 1 Static IPv4 Address. Additional Static IPv4 Addresses are available for this product at a cost of $20.00 (/29 – up to 6 Additional IP Addresses), with the exception of the AAPT Pipe Network EFM where there are no additional Static IPv4 Addresses available. There are no further Static IPv4 Addresses available to an individual service from us. IPv4 Addresses supplied by us remain our property and cannot be transferred to your new provider. If you require additional Static IPv4 addresses, they can be purchased directly from APNIC and we can host them for you. Justification will be required for your additional Static IPv4 Address.
  • For Telstra Ethernet Advantage (Copper or Fibre) where you will be supplying your own router, the router must be able to be rate limited to the access speed purchased and configured with the appropriate burst settings.

Service Activation

  • You are responsible for ensuring your internal wiring is in-place and adequate before the service is installed. In the event your internal wiring is not suitable, you would be responsible for upgrading this, at your expense, before your order can proceed. In the event you decide to withdraw the order instead of proceeding with the upgrade, a withdrawal fee may apply (refer to Order Withdrawal).
  • For Fibre delivery methods, there may be additional fees (Fee for Service) to deliver the service to your Communications Room. In the event that a Fee for Service applies, you will have the option to proceed and be charged the Fee for Service immediately, or have the works completed by your own contractor. If you do not proceed with the order, withdrawal fees will apply.
  • For Copper delivery methods, there is a possibility that there is no available copper in the street to deliver the service. In the event this occurs, you can either nominate the required number of PSTN lines to sacrifice, or you may withdraw the order without penalty. If you elect to attempt to connect new lines via the Telstra network to then nominate sacrifice, we are not responsible for any costs you incur and there is a possibility they may not be suitable for use.
  • We will install a NTU (Network Terminating Unit) into your premises at your service demarcation point. Please refer to General Terms & Conditions, Clause 13.
  • Installation of all Symmetrical/Ethernet suite products will always require a minimum of 2 site visits by our contractors, however more visits may be required.
  • The standard lead time for each product is detailed below. Whilst service is regularly delivered faster than these timeframes, there are also scenarios in which this lead time will be missed. This is a targeted lead time, with no rebates in the event it is missed. In the event that there are Fee for Service works, the site is not ready for install or there are network infrastructure shortfalls, these lead times will not progress until the issue in question has been rectified.
  • We will provide the Service from the date the activation takes effect (we will notify you when this happens).
