Winner: Jane McCune Kelly
A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to an event sponsored by Telstra. For my international friends, Telstra is Australia’s major telephone carrier.

This blogger event included a cooking class with celebrity chef, Justin North, and the chance to learn about (and play with) the new Telstra T-Hub 2.

Unfortunately, I had to cancel at the last minute and didn’t attend the event. My lovely children had the flu, which they then lovingly passed on to yours truly.

As you’re probably aware from my previous posts, we’re in the process of building a new house. Luckily for us, we will be on the National Broadband Network (NBN). I was eager to try out the Telstra T-Hub 2 as this will be the way we’ll be connected in our new house (eventually).

Telstra have been generous (or perhaps they were just grateful that I didn’t spread my flu germs) and have given me my very own Telstra T-Hub 2. Not only one for me, but another one to give away to a lucky Samelia’s Mum reader. Keep reading to find out how to win.

The Telstra T-Hub 2 combines the very best features of a home phone and a tablet. With its touch screen operation and cordless handset, it’s easier than ever to keep in touch, browse the net and stay organised.

The T-Hub 2 is more than just a home phone. You’ll also enjoy:
  • Convenient access to calls, voicemail and email
  • The latest news, sport and weather at your fingertips
  • The benefits of Android™ with easy access to Google, apps and more
  • Capturing your favourite moments with the front and rear cameras
  • Your favourite movies and music streamed on your Wi-Fi network with T-Share
  • Access to thousands of stations worldwide with internet radio
  • Relive your favourite memories on the digital photo frame
T-Hub 2 requires a BigPond broadband connection and a Telstra full service home phone.

  1. I would love a Telstra t hub as I'm tired of sharing my computer
    With everyone else in the house

  2. My Original T-hub suffered a Fatal ending in the hands on one of my Kids..... Would love to replace it with a T-Hub 2.. :) I miss my T-hub... :(

  3. Our house is a telstra house and it is missing a T-hub, mobiles, internet, landline but no T-hub. A T-hub would make this home complete

  4. In my home the
    T-Hub would make a huge impression.... phone, recipes, or searching the net .... it really would be my ‘prize’ possession.

  5. My carrier pigeon died, so I need a T-Hub 2 to communicate with my family

  6. It would be amazing to learn on a telstra T-Hub,my daughter and her family have one and it is amazing,thankyou Telstra for a chance to win one.

    I would love a t-hub. Sounds like fun to play with. Also means wouldn't. Have to fight the hubby and kids for the computer or phone

  8. Would be fab if I could simply stream through my music via the T-hub while I'm cooking dinner. All at my finger tips!

  9. christine morris8/17/12, 3:40 PM

    Iam connected with Telestra, i would love to win this T-Hub, Thank You :)

  10. My current home phone is about 10 years old and in serious need of an update! And if I had a T-Hub, maybe I'd get a look in on the gadgets... I currently don't get a chance to use anything round here!

  11. Catherine vormister8/17/12, 7:46 PM

    I would use this to stay connected with friends and family abroad and interstate and it looks so much easier to use.

  12. I want to learn how to work stuff like this, so that I dont look technologically stupid to my kids.

  13. This will add an air of sophistication and technology to my simple home.

  14. I really don't understand why I would need this new smart device.
    Does that make me a bonehead! I already know how to perform all these functions on my existing computer and it has a much larger screen.

  15. I'm thinking that once I finally work it all out the Telstra T-Hub 2 would do away with all the extraneous gizmos we have now. Simplify my techno wizardry.

  16. I need one to make my insane life simpler. Please.

  17. Ooo I have one of these. They are fab!

  18. Slaving away in the kitchen all day,
    Both hands needed, no time for 'phone play'
    The hands-free function's a winner for me ,
    Prepping meals now made easy!

  19. Being more mobile and being able to access so many great functions from the t hub instead of from the computer would be such a nice change. Ease of use and mobility is something I like.

  20. Lesley Fisher8/19/12, 3:22 PM

    I've got almost everything Telstra at and wireless broadband,all I need now it to top it off is T-Hub and I'll be super satisfied.

  21. Bronwyn Beazley8/19/12, 4:29 PM

    We're a Telstra household too; I'd love to be able to direct the kids to search for recipes that they would actually eat while I search the pantry for ingredients.

  22. With two little lads
    hardly get near my iPad
    Presto a Telstra t-hub2
    would make wishes come true
    Googling craft and recipes
    Ever after hassle free
    Music and movies in hi tech stream
    Oh a girl can only dream

  23. Just been diagnosed with lymphoma. Need to be able to contact my family when I need to talk or cry

  24. Would love a t hub as we are also a mega Telstra expo! Internet, mobiles, t box .. Would love something of my own just for me!
    Please!! Fingers crossed!

  25. braydonandkel8/20/12, 8:42 AM

    Hubby has been hinting for one for ages! I guess he isn't too keen on me hogging the laptop all the time with a new recipe or sewing tut!

  26. Sick of cables and remotes,
    T-Hub would solve this problem, totes!
    Many devices rolled into one,
    Discovering them all - so much fun!

    To sum up,
    T-Hub - thumbs up!

  27. Julie Boxsell8/23/12, 6:59 PM

    Slaving away, ironing, cooking...I often feel disconnected from family A T-Hub would bring the world into my kitchen...and, I could text the kids when tea's ready!

    1. The T hub would be the perfect gift for my Dad on fathers day. They still don't have digital TV, so they really need it! ;)

  28. I would love the T-Hub so I can integrate it with the T-V, T-computer, T-cooking, T-cleaning, T-washing. It'd make life so much T-easier.

  29. thanks for this giveaway - I've just moved into town after only have sketchy wi-fi connection for the past few years so looking forward to getting ADSL and much larger internet plan - I'd love to win this t-hub as its a phone as well as a tablet - just what I need with my new fast internet and new home phone service ! fingers crossed !

  30. Because I need to get with the times and update my scratchie Uniden phone. Everyone that calls me says, there is something wrong with your keeps cutting out! I just keep moving to different spots in the house, hoping it doesn't crackle anymore!

  31. Rosslyn Tadd8/26/12, 5:23 AM

    A rural dwelling single Mum with three teenagers it's easy to see. Communication is important and it saves my sanity. Being very isolated with a Telstra T- Hub 2 we'd be so delighted.

  32. what a great giveaway! We are so archaic here we have a 'corded' phone! Yikes, I know!! lol.

  33. I NEED Telstra's T-Hub because it's a pain in the butt when I want to find recipes & the laptop needs charging & takes up too much benchspace.

  34. Telstra T- Hub 2 - I am in love with your ability to stream music, let me know what the weather's doing, and keep me in touch with my friends. If you came to live at my house, you would be adored, and used often. It would be cool to have some serious technology in our home x

  35. I would be the coolest tech savvy Mum ever! My teenagers would be impressed (for once!) if I won! I love the idea of everything being controlled from one spot, wherever I am!

  36. It would get so much use: seeking
    crafty & cooking inspiration, photographing my projects, losing myself in
    Pinterest, watching movies while I craft and even communicating via email (&

  37. My iPhone is currently used in the kitchen, in the office & in the Workshop to stream recipes, tv shows & you tube handyman clips. The THub would be awesome!

  38. My brother got the cooking
    genes. I struggle reading recipes AND actually cooking! Telstra T-Hub would save
    us from endless mince - could learn from
    Youtube or just call brother!!

  39. I cannot lie, an upgrade is needed.
    "GET RID OF THIS THING" the kids have pleaded.
    But money's too tight, for a new phone...
    Please can i take this baby home!
