Telstra will cancel all calls, texts, emails and TV subscriptions for its customers, the company has announced.
Telstra has said the decision was made after a review of the cost of providing a high-speed internet service to customers in remote areas.
The company has been testing a high speed internet service that it says will reach more than 100 per cent of rural households.
Its rollout of the fibre to the node (FTTN) technology is being tested in remote communities around Australia.
But the company said it will not be extending its fibre to remote customers, and will stop charging them for calls, SMS and internet access once it completes its rollout.

The cost to customers of these services will be reduced, however, Telastar will continue to charge its existing customers for their existing internet services, in line with the cost it pays to deliver and maintain the service.
