Spend Management Tools and Advice

Choosing the right plan

Choosing the right telecommunications product to suit your needs can help you to keep control of your spending from the start. We recommend that you review the applicable charges for plans, keep your expected use of the services in mind and be aware of any eligible savings, for example, by bundling your phone and internet with Commander.

Get everyone on board!

It's important to discuss responsible phone and internet use with your family, housemates and/or partner so that everyone understands how their use can impact your household financially. Especially for younger and teenage phone users, discuss the use of Premium Voice Services and Premium SMS / MMS Services that can rack up large, unexpected bills in a short space of time. We have provided further information on these services and available barring options below.

Account information over the phone - Currently Unavailable

Staff can provide information regarding unbilled charges on your account and information regarding your usage. Your privacy is important to us, so be sure to have your account information handy so we can verify your identity.

Call Barring Requests and Call Controls

Call Control is another option available to you which can prevent the calling of specific phone types from your landline.
