How to use Telstra Air

1. Activate your service

You must activate your service to use Telstra Air.

Even if you have more than one service, you only need to activate one of them to access Telstra Air.

2. Find a hotspot

Once you’ve activated your service and you’re near a hotspot, turn on the Wi-Fi on your device and select “Telstra Air” from your Wi-Fi list. 

Telstra Air will only work if you’re near a hotspot – whether it’s a home hotspot, a business gateway or a payphone down the street.

3. Connect and enjoy

Now you can start enjoying your free data. You can use Telstra Air on up to three devices at a time in Australia just by logging in to Telstra Air with your Telstra ID.

Does it impact my home data allowance?

No. Your home Wi-Fi signal is separate from our Telstra Air and Fon signals. This means your data and information will be kept separate from Telstra Air. When others use your residential hotspot, it won't affect your home broadband allowance.
