Customer Service Guarantee Standard (CSG Standard)

Version May 2012

Customers may have rights under the Customer Service Guarantee Standard (CSG Standard) made under the Telecommunications (Consumer Protection and Service Standards) Act 1999.

The CSG Standard specifies timeframes for the connection of services, the repair of faults and the making and keeping of appointments. This applies to the standard telephone service, telephone line, and certain enhanced call handling features (namely, Call Waiting, Call Barring, Call Divert, Calling Number Display and Calling Number Display Suppression). You may be entitled to financial compensation if we fail to meet our CSG Standard requirements.

The CSG Standard does not apply to mobile or satellite services, customer equipment or where you have more than five telephone services.

In certain circumstances, Eftel may be exempt from complying with the CSG Standard. These situations include:

  • Where our ability to comply is impacted by circumstances out of our control, including for example, extreme weather conditions.
  • Where you have specifically waived your CSG rights, in accordance with the Standard.

If you have any enquiries about the CSG Standard, contact the Eftel Customer Service:

13 550 550 (option 2) 8am to 11pm AEST (Monday to Friday)
