Tis the season to be calling, according to Telstra.
Between December 24 and 26, the telco is giving customers free phone calls.
The deal applies to local, national and standard calls from a Telstra home phone – and from any of its 16,000 payphones across the country.
At some Telstra Air public hotspots, free Wi-Fi will also be available.
Telstra Area General Manager Chris Taylor said a similar campaign last Christmas showed a phone call was better than sending Christmas wishes via email or text.
“Telstra’s 2016 free payphone calls campaign was testament to that, with more than 271,000 free payphone calls made over three days,” Mr Taylor said.
“This year, by giving people even more ways to contact their friends and family for free, we expect to see this figure rise by at least 10 times this amount.”
