MyRepublic offers high-speed plans that cater to web surfers, streamers and gamers making it well worth considering.
What services do MyRepublic offer?
My Republic launched onto the Australian broadband speed with a bang in November 2016, promising a simple unlimited data plan with the fastest possible speed your connection can deliver.
This simple approach was then supplemented with a special plan for gamers, where MyRepublic will prioritise and optimise game traffic over anything else. This improved gaming experience is designed to reduce latency and lag while playing online, which is a critical element for victory as any competitive gamer will tell you.
How much do MyRepublic services cost?
MyRepublic offers two NBN plans. The first of which is for general browsing, streaming and more will set you back A9.99 per month on a 12-month contract, with a total minimum cost of A40.88. You'll also need to pay for a modem, which MyRepublic normally charges $99 for but has a limited offer of a A.00 fee for a modem.
If you prefer your broadband without lock in contracts, you'll have to pay a little bit more for your broadband, with month-to-month pricing coming in at A4.99 and a total minimum cost of A73.99.
The second offering is a dedicated Gamer plan that costs an additional $10 a month, making it A9.99 a month on a 12-month contract. This has a minimum cost of A60.88. The Gamer plan also comes with a $200 discount on Sony’s new Playstation 4 Pro.
How fast are MyRepublic's NBN plans?
The speed of your connection depends on your location and which technology connects to your house. Currently, residential NBN speeds in Australia can go up to 100Mbps download and 40 Mbps upload, and MyRepublic pitches its plans to provide the fastest NBN speed tier available at your location. While you may not be able to get those speeds on an ADSL connection, for example, the price remains the same regardless of which technology you use. Refreshingly, MyRepublic offers the maximum speed available in your area and doesn't charge any additional fees for higher speed tiers.
Pros and Cons
- All plans have unlimited data. No need to worry about running out of data with all plans having unlimited data. This is important as these faster NBN plans would normally burn through a data quota.
- High internet speeds. There's been a lot of negative talk about NBN speeds in the media, but with MyRepublic's plans you know you're getting the fastest speed possible at your connection.
- Dedicated gamer plan. The MyRepublic Gamer Pro plan could give you a competitive advantage when gaming online thanks to the prioritised gaming traffic.
- Few options. Only two plans are offered. While the two plans offered are great value, there's no way for people with lower usage to save some dollars.
