Information about the service
Your All-4-Biz Mach IV $120 Fixed Voice on the NBN Plan (Plan) is for a digital voice over IP service which allows you to make phone calls from a landline using a connection over the National Broadband Network (NBN).
It forms part of your overall All-4-Biz Mach IV plan and will be provided using one of two underlying NBN technologies (either a ‘Voice over UNI-V port’ service or a ‘Voice over UNI-D port’ service). Depending on your underlying NBN service there will be differences in the features and capabilities of your Plan.
Voice over UNI-D port
If your Plan is connected to a ‘Voice over UNI-D port’ service you’ll need a gateway, which you can purchase separately from us.
Voice over UNI-V port
If your Plan is connected to a ‘Voice over UNI-V port’ service you won’t need a gateway
The Plan is only available in areas where NBN fibre is available to the premises. To take up your Plan you’ll need to meet one of the following minimum monthly charge commitments for your overall All-4-Biz Mach IV Plan $500, $1,000, $1,500, $2,000, $2,500, $3,000, $4,000, $5,000, $6,000, $8,000, $10,000, $15,000, $20,000, $25,000, $30,000, $35,000, $40,000, $45,000, $50,000, $55,000 or $60,000.
- Minimum Term
Casual. There is no fixed minimum term, but if you cancel your overall All-4-Biz Mach IV plan then you’ll no longer be connected to this Plan.
- What’s included
Your Plan includes rental, local calls, calls to 019 numbers, national long distance (STD) calls, and calls to Australian mobile numbers, subject to our FairPlay Policy.
- What’s not included
You can’t use your included calls for any call types other than those listed above, including calls to the Sensis® 1234 service, calls to 12234 and 12455, third party content calls, international calls, international roaming calls, calls to 13 and 1300 numbers and calls to 19xx and 12xx numbers. You need to pay us for these calls separately and they will be charged at standard BusinessLine complete rates.
Full details and charges for these calls can be found at telstra.com/customer-terms.
- Service Limitations
Your Plan comes with Quality of Service (QoS) which helps improve the reliability and consistency of voice calls. However, the quality of your voice communications might be affected by factors such as your connected equipment and software configuration, the number of users connected at the same time and the performance of interconnecting infrastructure not operated by us.
Although your Plan may support fax, EFTPOS, medical dialers and other non-standard dialer services and equipment, we cannot guarantee that these services and/or equipment will work or function faultlessly over your service. Please check with your equipment manufacturer/provider about compatibility with a Telstra voice service on the NBN.
Voice over UNI-D Port
If your Plan is delivered via a UNI-D port, then it’ll need mains power to work. In the event of a power outage at your premises, you won’t be able to use the service to make or receive phone calls, including calls to Emergency 000 services.
If you also want to use your gateway to access the internet, you’ll need to take up a broadband service on the NBN for an additional charge.
The maximum number of voice services (or phone lines) that your Plan can support at a single location is 10. This means you can use a maximum of 10 lines at the same time (including phone, fax or EFTPOS lines), whether they are calls you receive or calls you make. You’ll need to take up a separate Plan for each phone line.
Voice over UNI-V Port
The maximum number of voice service (or phone lines) that your Plan can support at a single location is 2.
Your Plan is backed-up by the NBN Co supplied Battery Power Unit, so you can use it to make and receive calls during a power outage for a limited period. This Battery Power Unit will only provide backup power for your Voice over UNI-V service. We recommend you read the NBN Co user guide that you’ll get when your NBN connection is being installed. It’ll give you details about how to use, maintain and replace the battery.
Voice over UNI-D Port
You need a Telstra approved NBN compatible gateway (router) and handset to use your Plan.
You can use your own compatible handset or we can offer you a range of other handsets that will support your Plan. In order to make video calls, you must have a video capable handset.
Voice over UNI-V Port
You can use your own compatible telephone handset or we can supply you with one for an additional charge. You cannot make video calls using the UNI-V service. Most existing devices will be supported by a telephone service on the NBN. However, some older landline telephone handsets (such as a dial/rotary phone), back to base alarm systems, personal response systems (medical alert/emergency call systems) and fax machines may not work. Please check with the manufacturer/provider to check if your device is compatible.
- Your existing fixed phone service
If you have an existing voice service with Telstra or another provider, you will have to cancel it to move to this plan. Once you move to your Plan, you will not be able to move back to your old Telstra voice service or order a new non-NBN voice service from Telstra at that location.
Information about pricing
- Minimum monthly charge for your Plan
$120 – you’ll have to pay more than $120 if you make calls that aren’t included with your plan.
If required, we will supply you with a compatible Telstra Premium Business Gateway/router for an upfront charge of $240.
- Activation Charge
You’ll need to pay a once off $59 activation fee for the first NBN voice service you order at each location.
A minimum of two appointments are needed to connect your service on the NBN, one with NBN Co and one with us. We’ll arrange both appointments.
You’ll need a Standard Professional Installation for your NBN voice service. We will charge you a once-off $192 Standard Professional Installation Fee for the first NBN voice service you order at each location. You may be charged more than this if the work required to connect your service involves a non-standard installation and/or activation but the technician attending your premises will agree the additional charges with you before this work is carried out.
- Calls in Australia
Local calls, calls to 019 numbers, national long distance (STD) calls and calls to Australian mobile numbers are included in your plan. You’ll pay 35¢ per call to 13 numbers.
- Calls to International Numbers
Your included calls don’t include calls to international numbers, so you’ll be charged for making those at the international per minute rate set out in your agreement with us for your All-4-Biz plan.
- Early Termination Charge
You can cancel at any time – there’s no Early Termination Charge. You may incur Early Termination Charges for cancelling your overall All-4-Biz service if a minimum term applies to it.
