Extra Telstra services for bush

Services such as call waiting, call forwarding and message bank will soon be available to rural customers under Telstra’s proposed bush investment program. Telstra plans to start an upgrade of 1250 country telephone exchanges in November with completion in 12 months. There will also be loyalty incentives and discounts for rural customers who sign up for multiple services such as mobile and Internet packages.
