MyAussie first major telco app to allow customers to ‘Kick’ their own service
Media Release | Monday, 30 Sept 2019 | 1 min read
It’s no ordinary app.
MyAussie offers customers to the ability to “kick” their own connection. This basically restarts a service all the way through the network, rather than just at a modem level on premises. It’s a much more thorough version of “turn it off and then on again.” It’s one of the many reasons the MyAussie App has been nominated for ‘Customer Service Project of the Year’ in the ASEA awards in October this year.
It was built by Aussie Broadband’s in-house development team in just 45 days. So far, over 39,000 customers have used the app. That’s more than 25 percent of active customers since its launch in March 2019. MyAussie offers innovative features for customers that have never been seen before from a big telco player, designed to give customers much more control of their own service – through both functions and information.
Customers can use MyAussie to diagnose and troubleshoot their own NBN connection – lodge a fault with the support team, check their usage and update their account details. The app also allows customers to add and relocate a service at any time. This means they do not have to wait on the phone, unlike some other companies, if they need to change address or add a service.
The company also offers the flexibility of payment plans, where customers can choose to pay in chunks, rather than in one go. It’s all part of a ‘Be good to people” strategy. As a result, Aussie Broadband has seen a huge demand in people using this service. In fact, there’s been a 45 percent increase in the number of people using payment plans since its launch.
As well as an industry-leading app, here’s 5 reasons why people connect to the NBN with Aussie Broadband:
An all Australian support team.
Quick and easy set up process.
No lock-in contracts with all plans.
Winner of Australia’s best internet service provider at the 2019 Product Review Awards.
