My Telstra land line had such a nose that I could not make a phone

In my experience, it is extremely rare for a Telstra tech to admit a fault. However, I've seen problems "disappear" after their visits for some customers .... so they found a fault alright, they just wouldn't admit to it.

Incorrect call out fee is a bit harsh, but it is a Telstra charge and any ISP just passes this on (typically, if not always).
