I hope that outfit that said it represented Telstra stuck Tel$tra
with the bill, too. They called me 4 times. I filed complaints, too.
40k general complaints on Telstra this year, followed by 11k to
Optus. Wide margin. $15mil cost in fines across the sector.

sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
