Frequently asked questions
How much notice do I need to give Telstra before moving?
If you’ve left it to the last minute, you can request next day connection/disconnection when you book online. In many cases we’ll be able to get you connected the next day.
But the more notice you give, the more likely we can complete your move on your preferred day – especially if an nbn co or Telstra technician visit is required.
Why would a technician visit be needed?
A technician may need to visit if the address you’re moving to:
- Hasn’t had an active phone line for a long period of time
- Has been recently renovated
- Is being connected to the nbn network and hasn’t been connected to it before.
If a technician needs to visit, do I have to be at home?
If a Telstra technician needs to visit, you’ll need to be at home. If an nbn co technician needs to visit, you’ll need to be at home in some cases. Either way, we’ll let you know in advance. Remember, if someone does need to be at home, they must be over 18 and have authority to make decisions on your behalf about your services.
What does the standard move fee cover?
The fee covers visiting our local exchange, disconnecting the services from your old home, connecting the services at your new address, then ensuring the connection between the exchange and your new home is working.
An extra charge may apply if you’re connecting to the nbn network and the property is in a new development.
Will I need a new modem when relocating?
In many cases you won’t need a new modem. However, if you’ll be getting ADSL or Cable broadband at your new address and your existing modem isn’t compatible, then you’ll need to purchase a new one. If the service at your new address is on the nbn network and your current modem isn’t compatible, we’ll provide you with a new one free-of-charge. In all cases, we’ll let you know within 24-48 hours of receiving your move request.
Can I keep my home phone number?
If you’re moving to an address that’s serviced by a different telephone exchange, you’ll be provided with a new home phone number.
Will relocating my Telstra services break my current contract?
Your plan and contract will remain unchanged unless you wish to change to a newer plan, or add new products or services to your account.
What if the previous occupant at my new address has not disconnected their services?
It’s unlikely, but if this is the case, you’ll need to provide documentation to prove that you’re moving in to the new address.
Can I choose not to connect to the nbn network when I move house?
If you want to maintain your home internet and home phone services, and the nbn network has been rolled out to your new address, you’ll have to connect to it.
