Australian communications provider Telstra has announced changes to fixed and mobile price plans. Access fees for about half of the HomeLine plans will be increased but Bundled access prices will remain the same. Local call prices for three HomeLine plans (Complete, Plus, and Advanced) will be increased by AUD 0.002 per call. Calls to 13/1300/1345 numbers from fixed line services will increase from AUD 0.30 to AUD 0.35 for all Telstra customers. Furthermore, the 0018 Easy Half Hour international calling service will be removed from 1 October. There are also changes to business fixed line plans, including a monthly access increase for not-for-profit and charity customers. In the mobile segment, Member, Phone, and Casual mobile plans will be charged in 60-second blocks, from the 30-second blocks currently.
