Who is Telstra?

Telstra is one of Australia’s leading telecommunications technology companies, offering a range of services to consumers and businesses across the country.

Formerly trading under the name “Telecom”, the company merged the Overseas Telecommunications Company in 1992, and thereby changed its name to Telstra. Around that time, the internet started to become a large part of its core business, and it hasn’t looked back since.

Telstra has four core values:

  • We are changemakers
  • We are better together
  • We care
  • We make it simple

What kinds of internet plans to Telstra offer?

  • NBN plans: Telstra offers a range of NBN plans that may suit your lifestyle and budget. Plans and speed options available can depend on your NBN connections and other factors.
  • Mobile broadband: Telstra’s mobile broadband offerings now include both 4G and 5G coverage for compatible devices and where available. All you need is a device, a Telstra SIM, or Telstra’s new 5G Wi-Fi Pro device.

What NBN plans do they offer?

Telstra offers internet plans across a range of different NBN speeds. You can choose a speed pack based on how you use the internet.

Why choose Telstra?

Telstra offers four key reasons why you should choose them for your home internet and NBN!

  • Connect in minutes: Every Telstra smart modem comes with an in-built pre-activated SIM so that you can get online even before your home network is activated!
  • NBN satisfaction guarantee: If you’re not happy with your NBN service, you can let Telstra know within 30 days and they can’t fix it, you can cancel with no obligation.
  • Get rewarded with Telstra plus: With Telstra Plus members can earn points to enjoy exclusive benefits.
  • No connection fee: If you purchase one of Telstra’s internet plans with Telstra directly on their website, they’ll waive the connection fee.

What about Telstra 5G plans?

Telstra is aiming to build Australia’s best 5G network. 5G technology has the potential to transform the way we interact with technology, including facilitating self-driving cars, smart cities and smart utilities, augmented and virtual reality, and the Internet of Things (IoT).

To back up their plan to lead the way with 5G in Australia, Telstra was the first to enable standalone 5G in Australia. This means that Telstra’s mobile network is end-to-end enabled for 5G standalone, which increases network efficiency, and also enables innovative uses for mobile technology.

Some of the biggest and most transformational benefits of 5G include things such as reduced latency, higher network capacity, and advanced functions such as network slicing. Telstra claims that achieving these capabilities is only possible with Standalone 5G.

What’s the Telstra Wi-Fi booster?

Have you ever found that your Wi-Fi works better in some rooms than others? Typically the further you venture in the home away from your Wi-Fi modem, the weaker your connection becomes. For example, it’s possible to experience noticeable changes in Wi-Fi speeds between upstairs and downstairs in your home.

Thankfully, Telstra has a solution! They offer Smart Wi-Fi Boosters  which extends the Wi-Fi coverage throughout the home to eliminate those Wi-Fi ‘weak spots’.  Installing one of these Wi-Fi boosters can allow you to enjoy a stronger Wi-Fi connection, giving you the flexibility to work, play, or surf online in more places in the house.
