Australia's biggest telecommunications company has again changed its position on marriage equality, saying it will now actively support the change in the public arena.
Last week it emerged Telstra had caved-in to Catholic church lobbying and would stop lobbying for marriage equality because of a possible national vote on the issue.
"Given this we have no further plans to be active in the debate," a Telstra spokesperson told BuzzFeed News.
It kicked off furious debate with customers lodging their disgust online and many saying they'd change their service to a competitior which supported marriage equality.
If the government is returned at the coming election it has promised a national vote on marriage equality before the end of the year.
BuzzFeed News has contacted the Sydney Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney for comment on Telstra's apparent about-face.
