Priority Assistance for Telstra customers
Priority Assistance® 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 Assistance® customer has a fault on their home 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 Assistance® customer's first home phone line at their address as quickly as practicable.
Priority Assistance® covers the use of one home phone line only (mobile phones are not included).
Who is eligible?
Any Telstra customer with (or living with someone who has) an eligible life-threatening condition. The following list of conditions is not a complete list, but intended as a general guide of who can apply for Priority Assistance®:
