The Telecommunications Consumer Protections (TCP) Code provides a host of consumer safeguards for mobile, landline and internet users.

These safeguards are set out in clear rules that providers like us must follow when communicating and dealing with customers. The rules cover the areas of advertising and point of sale, billing, payment methods, complaint handling, financial hardship and more.

The TCP Code was developed by the Telecommunications Industry following extensive consultation and negotiation with consumer groups, the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), and other relevant interest groups. The ACMA regularly monitors compliance with the code.

Aussie Broadband is committed to following the code and its principles, not only because of compliance but also in line with our strong values of “no bullsh*t and “be good to people”.
