Telstra Launches ‘Time for a Chat’ via The Monkeys

Telstra has launched ‘Time For A Chat’, a new installment of its “You don’t need the best network…until you do” campaign.Created by The Monkeys, the spot was directed by Brian Aldrich from Finch.

“Everybody would have a similar story to one of these spots,” said The Monkeys Creative Director, Stuart Alexander. “Whether it’s sharing big news, changing plans in a hurry or quickly looking up something important, it’s nice to know that Australia’s best network is there for you when you need it.”


The campaign is set to run on television and in-cinema over the coming months, including during the AFL and NRL 2019 Grand Finals.

“Telstra’s network plays a crucial part of the fabric of Australian society, connecting millions of people every day to what matters most to them,” said Telstra Chief Marketing & Brand Executive, Jeremy Nicholas. “We loved the emotion in this spot, from the first moment we saw the script.”
