MyRepublic launched onto the Australian broadband market with a bang, promising a simple unlimited data plan with the fastest possible speed your connection can deliver. It has since expanded its offering with two NBN speed tiers and a naked ADSL plan for those who have yet to receive NBN in their area.

There's also a special plan for gamers, where MyRepublic will prioritise and optimise game traffic over anything else, potentially reducing lag while playing online. In addition, all of MyRepublic's broadband plans include a voice over IP (VoIP) phone service with unlimited calls to Australian landline numbers thrown in for free.

The beauty of MyRepublic is its simplicity. There are no confusing data caps spread across different price points to worry about as all plans come with unlimited data and a VoIP service.

MyRepublic NBN plans

MyRepublic's NBN plans support all standard NBN access technologies: fibre to the premises (FTTP), fibre to the node (FTTN), fibre to the building (FTTB), hybrid-fibre coaxial (HFC) and fixed wireless. Fixed wireless is limited to Standard Plus speed (nbn50) while the NBN's various fixed-line connections adds a Premium speed (nbn100) option.

MyRepublic ADSL plans

MyRepublic keeps things simple with ADSL, offering just a single naked ADSL plan with unlimited data. "Naked" ADSL means you won't have to worry about the significant cost of line rental and with MyRepublic you also get unlimited calls to local and national landlines thrown in for free.

The only downside is that you will have to purchase a modem from MyRepublic which can set you back as much as $119 on a no-lock-in contract.

MyRepublic extras

An NBN connection won't do you much good without a compatible modem-router capable of sharing that connection among your various devices. Unlike some other ISPs, MyRepublic requires you to buy their modem-router regardless of whether you own an existing compatible model or not, so you will need to factor that cost in.

MyRepublic offers two models, the Wi-Fi Hub+ and the Halo. The Wi-Fi Hub+ is MyRepublic's entry-level modem-router with wireless speeds of up to 1600Mbps and suited to connecting up to 10 Wi-Fi devices simultaneously. The upfront cost depends on your choice of plan commitment: $119 on a no-lock-in contract and $1 on a 12-month contract term.

How does MyRepublic compare?

As with most Internet providers, MyRepublic keeps its monthly pricing consistent regardless of contract length. Since it only charges a slightly higher modem fee for the freedom of a month-to-month contract instead of a locked-in 12-month contract, the below comparisons are all based on its more flexible month-to-month plans.


Why should you consider MyRepublic?

MyRepublic overall offers good value for heavy data users at the highest speed tier available at their address. The inclusion of gamer-specific plans is also a big plus if your online interests include a lot of gaming activities. For those who still need a landline, the fact that all MyRepublic's plans, both on the NBN and using ADSL, include unlimited calls to Australian landlines is also a compelling if not unique factor.

However, that also means they're not going to be the best option if you want a simple, low-speed plan, because that's not the space that MyRepublic plays in.
