[AusNOG] Telstra contacting ex-ADSL customers - illegal?

When they went to FTTC with another provider, this process never told Telstra to cancel the ADSL as it’s not on the nbn platform.
So it’s not illegal as much as it is, just poor form.
Your customer should have told Telstra to cancel the service if they were with another provider.
