Minimum Plan Cost

$2,040. This is the minimum amount that you will pay over the length of your plan and is calculated as follows:

Early Termination

If you cancel your Telehealth Starter Solution before your minimum term has ended, you’ll need to pay us an early termination charge (ETC).

Other information

Transferring to the National Broadband Network (nbn)

If the NBN comes to your area and you wish to transfer to the NBN with Telstra, we’ll take responsibility for managing your transfer to this new network. To do this, we’ll need your agreement and help to access your premises, and we’ll talk with you about installation requirements. We’ll work with you to make this as simple as possible.

If you don’t want to transfer to the NBN, we’ll continue to provide your service up until we’re required to disconnect it as part of the migration to the NBN. At this time we will cancel your services and no ETC will be charged. We’ll let you know the details before any changes happen.
