How fast are MyRepublic's NBN plans?

Currently, speeds in Australia can go up to 100Mbps download and 40 Mbps upload, and MyRepublic pitches its plans as "Up to 100Mbps". 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.
