What about my landline service?
A Wireless Landline service is included with most of our Wireless Broadband plans (unless you choose a Naked one without a landline) and calling using it will work the same as your current landline today.
What if I have my toll calls with a different provider?
If you choose a Wireless Broadband/Landline plan you will have to use Spark for your direct dial toll calling (Non-code access). That means you won't be able to use another company to make your toll calls and any toll calls you do make will be charged to your Spark account.
Are there any other services that I can't use with a Wireless Landline?
The following services don’t work with Wireless Landline:
- Monitored alarm: (including medical and security alarms) that uses your landline
- You cannot use a SKY remote to download SKY "pay per view" movies or games, or SKY betting. You can still order SKY "pay per view" movies or games by calling SKY TV
- Home 0800
- Unlimited data
- Talk it up neighbouring area
- Eftpos machines that require a landline
- Dual Number
Can I use my existing home phone with Wireless Landline?
Your existing home phone calling will work as normal when plugged into the back of the modem. If it’s a cordless (DECT) phone, you’ll still need to have the base station connected to power. If you have multiple phones in other rooms that are connected via the jackpoint in the wall, these will not work.
If you want to use multiple phones, we recommend using a cordless (DECT) phone with multiple handsets.
How can I keep track of my usage, and what if I want more data?
It's super easy to keep track of your usage, you can see how much data you have left by logging into your account in MySpark. Once you reach your data cap, extra data is charged at $10 for the first 10GB, then data usage is blocked. Extra data can be purchased at 10GB for $10 and this can be purchased as a one-off or recurring monthly. You can add extra data using the Spark app or through MySpark.
Does Wireless Broadband work in the event of a power outage?
No, Wireless Broadband will not work in the event of a power outage. If you have a Wireless Landline as part of your bundle, this also won’t work, including the ability to make 111 calls. We recommend having a fully charged mobile phone on hand at all times, or using an uninterrupted power source (UPS) to keep your broadband and landline service working in the event of a power outage.
How do I connect all my devices to the new Wireless Broadband modem?
Your new modem will have a different WiFi network name so you’ll need to set up your devices to connect to this. On your computer or other devices (i.e. mobile or tablet), just search for the new network. It will show up as SPARK-B315-XXXX (the exact name is shown on the sticker on the bottom of your modem). Choose that one, then enter the WiFi Key (case sensitive) to join the network. You’ll find all this information on the bottom of your modem.
