Free access to Telstra payphones and hotspots around the Australia

Australian operator Telstra has announced that, starting 6 January until further notice, it is making its payphone network around the country available to provide free local, national and standard mobile calls.
Telstra will also allow free use of the Telstra Air Wi-Fi network at locations where payphones are equipped to provide this service.
As bushfires around the country continue to take their toll, we know staying in touch with loved ones is vital. That’s why, from tomorrow (Monday 6 January) until further notice, we’re making our payphone network around the country available to provide free local, national and standard mobile calls. We will also be allowing free use of the Telstra Air Wi-Fi network at locations where payphones are equipped to provide this, Andrew Penn CEO – Telstra said. As part of our existing disaster assistance packages for Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, we are already providing free calling on our payphones and free use of our Telstra Air network.

However, given the scale of the emergency we’ve made the decision to extend this across the county allowing all Australians  to keep in touch with family and friends.

The following sites will not count towards consumer mobile data limits throughout the month of January:

State and Territory rural fire services for information about current fires and responses:
