When I originally signed up to use TelstraClear I remember there was a minimum period of usage (I think it was two years, but I'm not sure). Unfortunately I can't find my original paperwork and so I can't check on this. I've had a quick look at the TC Customer Zone but couldn't find anything there that told me this info.

Does anyone know where I can find this info online?  I need to know what my contract period is (i.e. how many months) and when it expires.

I am moving house soon and so need to decide if I stick with TelstraClear or look at other providers (probably Vodafone as I like their plans better).  I assume TC have a fee if you move house and want to keep them?

I should maybe mention that I submitted request for this info via TC's Customer Care on 16/01/2013 but haven't received a reply yet (I did get a reply on 18/01/2013 saying that person couldn't help me and they were forwarding my request somewhere else, but I haven't heard anything since then). Maybe I should have just rung them up.

johnr: Just call and ask


I was hoping to avoid that but I guess that's the fastest way.

^ As above just call and ask.

It's $60.39 to move house in or out of contract and have everything reconnected at the new place - usually

Maybe TC will match VF's pricing, as they are now owned by the same parent, which may make things easier for you as a customer.

mattwnz: Maybe TC will match VF's pricing, as they are now owned by the same parent, which may make things easier for you as a customer.


I was wondering that but I didn't think it very likely.  I was thinking that if I'm out of contract then I might just cancel with TC and sign up with VF.  TC say that it takes a minimum of two weeks to shift services when moving home, I wonder how long it takes to get connected with VF?

Hi Murray. If you call and talk to one of the team about your situation they will try and assist. If you can't call you can always send a message via Facebook or Twitter.

All sorted! A nice lady from TC rang me last night and told me that I'd come off my contract last July, and off the special rate I was on. She offered to put me back on the special rate if I agreed to another 12 month contract, which I've done.

TC don't seem awesome at calling you back. I submitted a request for a callback on their website yesterday, nothing yet. I don't want to call them, I can't be bothered with their hold times and help desk staff. Instead of upgrading to Warp Speed I think I'll just get fibre broadband through another provider with a reputation for better service.

If you call the retail stores (one in chch 039826860 and one in welly 049203950 ) you'll probably get hold of someone if you really wanna talk to somebody :).

They did call me, it took two days but they got around to it eventually and answered all my questions.
