What’s Home Wireless Voice?

Home Wireless Voice (or 4G fixed) is a home phone service that’s connected to the 4G network through your Telstra Smart Modem and doesn’t cost any extra. If you don’t use the internet and all you want is a home phone service to make and receive voice calls, then this could be the right service for you.

Why should I switch to Home Wireless Voice?

Having your home phone on the 4G network means your service is solely supported by Telstra. Our 4G network handles tens of millions of voice calls every day and if your service has a problem, we’re here to fix it for you.
