If your direct debit fails and we don’t receive your payment (or we don’t hear from you) within 7 days of your payment date, your Australia Broadband service(s) will be suspended.

I’ve been suspended, how do I get back online?

If you make a full payment after your account has been suspended, your Australia Broadband service will be unrestricted. This normally happens within 2-3 working hours of us receiving your payment, but may take longer if you have an ADSL service and how paid us. To make a payment, Login to Australia Broadband Online or visit How do I make a one-off payment?

I am experiencing Financial hardship, what can I do?

We understand the importance of keeping our customers connected and that at times some customers may find themselves experiencing genuine financial hardship.

You may also wish to consider obtaining advice from a community financial counsellor by calling 1800 007 007 from anywhere in Australia (minimum opening hours are 09:30 to 16:30 Monday to Friday) or seek other assistance from a community welfare organisation such as the Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul Society, Anglicare and others.

What happens if we don’t hear from you?

If payment is still not received or we haven’t heard from you within 20 days of your payment date, your Australia Broadband service(s) will be disconnected.
