Frequently Asked Questions


1.) What happens now that I have signed with up with Totalcom?

Upon signing up with Totalcom you will have received a Welcome Pack, which contains helpful information as well as all of our customer care phone numbers. Your current provider will send you a final invoice (due to current providers terms you may be eligible for a credit for payments made in advance). Totalcom invoices your company either on the 3rd or 15th of the month which will include the pro-rata period which is explained in detail in the Welcome Pack.

2.) What is CSG?

CSG stands for Customer Service Guarantee. The CSG is a performance standard created by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA). This standard can provide financial compensation to customers who are affected by delays in service connections and fault repairs. It also covers missed appointments. However, some exemptions do apply.

3.) Will there be any interruption to my service/s?

There will be no interruption to your service; you wont even notice the change over to Totalcom.

4.) What network does Bolotelecom use?

Totalcom uses the Telstra Network for all our PSTN & ISDN (landline) services throughout Australia. It is one of the most reliable networks in Australia.

5.) If I have an issue with my service does that mean Telstra is responsible?

As a Totalcom customer Telstra are not responsible for the service we provide to you. Totalcom manages all your invoices, services and accounts. Any issues you have are Totalcom's concern and as such should be directed to Totalcom's Customer Care.

6.) Will Telstra bill me if I'm still technically on their network?
