How to guide: Manage your account from home in MyAccount

Have you heard about MyAccount? It’s the name of our online account management tool and it can make life a lot easier when you need to make changes to your Westnet account.

If you need to make a change, you can hop online with your computer, tablet or smartphone and take care of it in MyAccount in just a few minutes. You can use MyAccount for a range of handy tasks from the comfort of your own home or even when you’re on the go, like when you’re commuting to work.

To help you get started, we’ve prepared these quick guides so you can master your account. Keep reading and you’ll know how to log in, update your payment details, request an invoice extension, update your contact details, change your broadband plan and more!

It all starts with logging in

You can log in to MyAccount at – you may want to add this link to the bookmarks in your web browser so you can visit in just a click or two.

  • If you’re a broadband customer, log in with the username and password for your broadband service. It must be the broadband service – if you log in with the username and password for an extra mailbox, you won’t see many important features. We designed it that way so you can safely create mailboxes for other family members or housemates without giving them the ability to make changes on your overall account.
  • If you’re a mobile-only customer, log in with the username and password for your Westnet email address.

If you get truly stuck, just give us a call on 1300 786 068. A member of our friendly Customer Support team can talk you through how to regain access to your account, then you can record your username and password for safekeeping so you won’t get stuck again.

Change your broadband plan

  • Log in
  • Select My Products
  • Select the type of product you’d like to change – Broadband, Phone or Mobile

  • Select Change plan
  • Select your plan from the list of available options
  • Hit Switch to this plan
  • Check out the summary of the changes and hit Confirm if you’re happy to go ahead.

    This page explains how to change my plan but when I follow the instructions it states that changes can’t be made on line. please explain

      Hi Robert,

      Thanks for your comment! If you’re unable to change your plan via MyAccount, then it suggests that you’re on a plan that is no longer offered and that staff need to make manual changes to move you to a new plan. In that case, you would need to contact or Accounts team on 1300 855 006 for further assistance.

  2. Pat Reynolds says:

    I just want to know why my broadband speed has become so slow in the past 2 weeks – I have checked my usage and have not exceeded my quota, so it should not have been shaped.

      Hi Pat,

      We’d recommend having a chat to Support about this – there really isn’t a reason for your connection to slow down unless there is a hardware problem or a line fault!
