They MAY not include calls to mobile numbers within that country. Some countries have different rates for calls to mobiles from landlines. Call us to check which countries have different rates.
Can I keep my existing number.
Yes. But we will be charged a fee by the "losing carrier". We will pass that cost on. It is usually only $55 for a single number. If you have more than one number, call us for a price.
Are there any Contracts
No, if you pay for your modem.
In normal circumstances there are no contracts. You can leave us at any time. The only variation to that is if you ask us to supply a new modem or telephone, and do not pay for it upfront. If you want Koala to provide those hardware equipment free of charge, we ask that you stay with Koala for a minimum of 24 Months.
If you then decided to leave us you only have to pay out the balance of the telephone cost.
The "exit" cost is calcualted by taking the norrmal "up front" price of the equipmnet divede by 24 and multiplying it by the number of months left of the 24 months.
e.g. Leaving after 16 months. Upfront costs is $199.00
Upfront price / 24 months x 8
$199 /24 = $8.29
$8.29 x (24-16) = $66.33
Can I make calls to triple zero.
No. We do support calls to 000. We reccomend you use a mobile phone to call 000.
