Enhanced call-handling features that require activation by a phone company are also covered, including call waiting, call forwarding, call barring, calling number display and calling number display blocking.

Why does Exetel request customers to waive the CSG?
While Exetel will do everything possible to comply with the CSG timeframes, it is only able to offer the ADSL2/Voice bundle at the low charges if customers waive the various rights that are specified in the Telecommunications Act. You should also be fully aware that Exetel is subject to any Optus constraints and limitations.
