Before reporting a fault
Before reporting a fault to us, it’s essential to check for outages in your area to be sure your issue isn’t part of a larger disruption.
If your issue is an outage, rest assured we’re working to resolve it as quickly as possible. There’s no need to raise a fault in such a case.
If there isn’t a known outage, check out our internet troubleshooting steps to diagnose and resolve common issues.
How to report a fault
When you contact us about a fault, we create an incident ticket you can use to reference progress on the issue.
A fault can be raised in different ways.
You can sign in to My Telstra to check your service, run simple tests and automatically raise a fault ticket.
You can also contact us to raise a fault and speak to an agent to help you resolve the issue.
Sometimes we’ll see the problem first and contact you about it.
What happens after a fault is reported?
Often we’re able to resolve the fault quickly with simple troubleshooting steps.
If troubleshooting doesn’t resolve the issue, we may also need to arrange for a technician to visit your home Find out more about technician appointments.
Once we've confirmed a suitable time for your technician booking, we'll send you an SMS with the appointment details.
We’ll contact you if any changes need to be made to the appointment. Changes can be caused by issues outside of our control, but we’ll work with you to get the job done.
It’s important that you get in touch with us if we require additional information, or if you need to change your appointments.
