Telstra offers free mobile services to volunteer firefighters

“We hope this will help ease some of the burden, particularly as many of these firefighters are defending their own communities.”

Telstra brought in a new assistance package with free calls and TelstraAir Wi-Fi on local payphones on Tuesday for customers who have lost service in East Gippsland and the Northern Victorian areas of Corryong, Walwa, Towong, Cudgewa and Burrowye.


Adverse conditions have stopped Telstra employees from being able to get to some affected areas where telecommunications services have been hit due to power loss or fire damage.

“We are doing everything we can to get these communities back up and connected as quickly as possible but given the horrific conditions we have seen over the past few days, this may take some time,” he said.
