Telstra is stepping up to support vulnerable Australians with an incredible offer: 12,000 free smartphones. This initiative is aimed at helping those who might struggle with the upcoming switch from 3G to 4G, including people over 80 and those living in regional areas.

As Telstra moves to phase out its 3G network by mid-2024, the company recognises that not everyone is ready for the transition. To ensure that no one is left behind, Telstra is providing free 4G-capable phones to those in need. This generous gesture aims to keep everyone connected in our increasingly digital world.

The new phones will come with a simple setup process, making it easy for anyone to get started. Telstra is also offering support to help customers transfer their contacts and data from their old phones to the new ones. This means that even those who aren’t tech-savvy can make the switch without stress.
