Priority Assist for Telstra customers
Priority Assist is a free service designed to help customers who have (or are living with someone who has) a diagnosed life-threatening medical condition, and whose life may be at risk without access to a fully-operational phone service.
If a Priority Assist customer has a fault on their phone line, without any other working phone service (from Telstra or another provider), we'll attend to the fault with the highest practicable level of service available. We will also install a Priority Assist customer's first phone line at their address as quickly as practicable.
Priority Assist covers the use of one phone line only (mobile phones are not included).
