    Consider amending the title to include that you need Telstra eligible HomeLine Plan.

      I just disconnected my Telstra home phone early this month after paying for it for many years with no real reason. The only reason for me to have Telstra line was to get TPG ADSL internet on it. Hardly used that phone to make any calls. Then I moved to Ace Communication this month.

      If they offered this with few more countries included this would have been a good reason to stay with Telstra. Still this is a good deal if you have relatives in these countries.

  •  

    Go Telstra!

    Firstly the changes to make nextg and 4g data cheaper.

    Now this.

    •  

      You mean mobile broadband? Hopefully there'll be some better data inclusions with their mobile phone plans as well.

    Great stuff.

    Wow unlimited calls to fixed line and mobile for $10 to Vietnam.

    That's pretty good.

    •  

      U sure its mobile and landline as well??

      •  

        Yes, it's on the site.

        I wonder what the catch is.

        Are Telstra using low quality voip now?

    I smell some value here…

  •  

    So this would need a homeline account with telstra???

    • +1 vote

      Yes,
      This is an add-on pack but only works with Telstra landlines.

  •  

    Which 32 countries is it? Can't find a list besides 12 from the site.

    Those with telstra, you might want to get it as soon as you can. I remember vodaphone did this kind of deal a few years ago but had to stop the plan after they got raped by all the international students who literally used it for over 20 hours a day. How, you ask? They would speak to all their friends and family back home for 5 or 6 hours straight then pass it on to the next roommate! telstra is a lot bigger company in Australia so I have no idea how long they would be able to sustain it for but I doubt it'll be for very long. I'm surprised they didn't learn from vodaphone's mistakes, or maybe they have, idk, either way this is great news for people with lived ones overseas.

        Telstra International Calling Pack

        •  

          still, the ozbargainer's force within me still want more.
          I think I will call Telstra and try to haggle them to include Australia for Free.
          If that work, then the deal will be "perfect".
          :)

  •  

    Too Good. and too bad for me as I have a TPG phone.
    This plan would have been perfect for me.

    Wonderful deal.

  •  

    Good deal for people who make lots of overseas calls. I don't make that many so Pennytel is jussst fine for me :)
    Although, paying for Telstra line in the first place must suck…

      indonesia telkom just heavily monopolized Telstra can't do much about it

    Suppose they had to attempt to retrieve lost business as many, like I, canned the phone line rental years ago and went mobile.

    this gonna kill most of the voip and calling card companies. for the very first time i have to say "Telstra you rock!"

    •  

      Yeah my Pennytel account isn't going to be used much anymore.

  •  

    pls delete

  •  

    Damn you Telstra, I just renewed a 2 year contract with HKBN 2B and you come up with this?

  • +1 vote

    Good Deal! Don't need to buy calling card anymore

  •  

    Wow this is really good. Saves me getting internet for my grandma's home. I can just add this pack!

  •  

    Pity i'm on TPG bundle, can't take up this offer, anyone know the cheapest way to call to Vietnam at the moment?

    •  

      buy the international phone card or stick to the unlimited plan

  •  

    I have Homeline Budget. Am I still eligible for this pack?

    •  

      Yep, you're not specifically excluded. Why Homeline Part (never heard of it before now) at around $35 a month is, but Budget isn't I'm not sure. I'm sure they'll wake up to this, though, and possibly change that.

      I absolutely HATE that I have to pay Telstra for a homeline that I don't want or use (can't get naked adsl,) But if I had anyone overseas that I'd be likely to call, this would be a fairly reasonable sweetener.

        It really is a bit sh*tty (and typical) of Telstra to be offering deals like this (to sucker into a contract those who are not already with them) for unlimited calling overseas, while they keep increasing the basic cost of a landline though. They've risen 25% for us in the last 12 months alone.

  •  

    I just switched my grandma's phone onto this.

    You need to make sure you tell and re-confirm that the CSR is putting you onto the "International Calling Pack" unlimited calls to 32 countries instead of the "$10/month International Value Pack"!

    •  

      what is the CSR? thanks for the advice

      •  

        Customer Service Rep

        Call:
        English: 1800 007 736
        Mandarin/Cantonese: 1800 007 768

  •  

    Or if you have an internet connection,

    Pennytel's $5/mth freedom plan gives you 150 calls to 80 countries (inc Aust landlines) then 8c/call after that…..
    Also 7.8c/min to Oz Mobiles
    50 free SMSs (via web)
    A phone number

    Also they have free ANI callback,
    So you can register up to 10 phones numbers,
    you call a number, get a busy signal (so free) they call you back & allow you to dial out.
    (spread the cheap call love to family & friends or even your mobile).

      The quality is so so. This is total Telstra Landline quality, so it would be the best. Great for when CNY comes so you can call into China etc!

      I guess it depends on what you currently have. If you have Telstra and make a lot of calling cards etc this is much better. Easier for old folks too!

      •  

        Agreed, I'm sick of Pennytel call quality so very happy to switch to this

  • +2 votes

    hahaha with this pack my grandma will be calling her sisters in china/hongkong/vietnam everyday!
    She is 89 years old! and still catches Sydney buses and Trains!

  •  

    Anyone signed up and tried it yet? Wondering if the call quality is the same as normal ($$$$) Telstra international. I use iinet naked adsl with VoIP (the mrs calls Malaysia/Belgium a lot). The call quality has been getting worse the last year or so almost un usable. Heck sometime calling companies add my VoIP to their VoIP plus some sound leveling drop outs and it's worse than 2 cans on a string.

    •  

      I will let you know once granny gets it.

      Although to her quality isn't really an issue. Anything is better than calling cards etc

      I signed in the shop,they said i can use after 30 minutes.

  •  

    good deal but I can't have it as I am on T-Bundle Edge and Everyday are not eligible.

    •  

      Technically still on a HomeLine plan

      •  

        tried to get it for Everyday Bundle. Was told cant get it as bundle includes Int. Value Pack and 'system' does not allow both Value pack and Calling pack to be active at the same time.

  •  

    Its a shame that this isnt available for Tbundles
    Why make it hard for me to give you my money.
    Guess we're sticking to VOIP

  •  

    For bundles only Starter is eligible , not Everyday/Edge :(

  •  

    need dial 0011 first,still a voip?

  •  

    Had a long talk with Telstra

    to get the "deal", you would need to signup to a special landline phone plan of $50 a month
    only then will you be eligible for the $10 add-on deal.
    so that would cost you $60 a month.
    and this doesn't include local calls
    (I was shocked and disappointed)

    in comparision, If I signup to TPG unlimited internet (line rental included) for $60 a month. I won't use my landline to make call but instead signup to pennytel for $5 a month. I will have 150 included calls, untimed to about 40 countries (including Australia)
    Now if I make 120 calls in Australia and 30 calls oversea per month, then I'm good.
    the countries listed on Pennytel has all the countries I need.

    so to me, this Telstra Deal sux.

    I won't neg this since it may suits some other people.

    •  

      Not sure about that. I have Homeline Budget, and they added the pack for me a few days ago. I called back and they confirmed again that I have subscribed to the International Calling Pack.

      Is your homeline already with Telstra? If not it may be the reason they have additional conditions?

    •  

      It's wrong, i have home line budget and they added it to my account.
      It depends on Customer Care people, Some even don't know about telstra's unlimited pack at all.

  •  

    I called up and asked and you can have this $10 calling pack on the T Bundle Everyday Freestyler bundle ($90). You are not allowed to have it on the Everday Advantage bundle ($100). So basically both work out to $100 per month but you need to choose whether you want unlimited local calls and calls to telstra mobiles (advantage plan) or if you want free calls to international land lines but not local calls in Aus (Freestyler + $10 calling pack)
