MATILDA INTERNET: INFORMATION ABOUT OUR SERVICES
We hope the information below will assist you with the use of our services.
- MANAGING YOUR SPEND
If you are a residential customer, we will help you control your spend by providing you with notifications via email you reach 50%, 85% and 100% of your data allowance that is included in your mobile plan or in your broadband plan.
Usage notifications do not occur in real time but with a delay of 48 hours after you actually reached the respective thresholds.
Usage notifications also do not include any usage that you may have consumed overseas (mobile roaming), calls and SMS to overseas destinations and calls to premium services.
Other ways of managing your spend:
There may be other ways of keeping your spend on track, such as barring more expensive numbers, choosing an internet plan without excess charges (which means that your speed is shaped/slowed down once you used up your included data allowance) or monitoring your spend online through our website. Please contact us for more information.

- YOUR NETWORK
Your service is provided using the Matilda Internet network. Matilda may buy ports at an exchange from either Telstra or Optus and may use some of their infrastructure, where appropriate Matilda Internet however is responsible for the service that we are providing to you, and we will be there to help in case you have any feedback or wish to complain. To learn more about the coverage that your mobile network offers, call us. Please note that actual coverage depends on numerous factors, including local geographic and structural/building conditions. Therefore, we recommend, if possible, to test coverage at your specific location, e.g. using the mobile of a friend who already uses the network etc.

Where we supply hardware, e.g. a modem, router, mobile phone etc., you are most likely entitled to a warranty under the Competition and Consumer Act and we are responsible for dealing with any warranty matters on your behalf with the manufacturer. Warranties in general are 12 months and we will deal with all warranty matters. Warranties do no cover modems hit by lightning.

- VOIP Services for NBN via UNI-D Ports - Battery Backup Information:
Your ability to use your NBN service to make or receive calls (including calls to an emergency service number) in a power failure depends on whether a battery backup power supply is installed. As Matilda Internet does not supply a battery backup unit, you WILL NOT be able to make or receive calls (including calls to an emergency service number) during a power failure.
Even if you obtain your own battery backup unit, if there is a power outage you WILL NOT be able to make and receive calls UNLESS the connected equipment such as the computer, gateway/modem and powered handset each have its own separate backup power supply, for example an uninterruptible power supply. Please note that it is not recommended that you rely on VOIP services for emergency calling as VOIP can experience outages which can be critical in a life or death situation. Matilda recommends that you have a mobile phone as well on standby to make calls to emergency services.
