Compare MyRepublic ADSL plans

Matt Sayer 19 May 2017 NEWS

If you're still waiting on the NBN in your area, MyRepublic's ADSL plan will switch you over seamlessly when the time comes.


What you need to know about MyRepublic ADSL plans

MyRepublic has a strong legacy in the Internet world. It was the first telco to launch a 1Gbps broadband plan in Singapore and South Asia, paving the way for Singapore's Internet ranking as one of the world's best. Now, MyRepublic hopes to achieve the same success here in Australia, leveraging its experience with high-speed Internet to get Aussies online faster.

With many Australian homes still waiting for the NBN to reach them, MyRepublic offers an interim solution. MyRepublic has optimized its ADSL service to deliver smooth video streaming through the likes of Netflix and Stan, minimising interruptions and frustrating disconnections. Better yet, when the NBN does roll out in your area, you'll be able to switch over to it without changing your monthly bill or even purchasing a new modem. This applies to both 12-month and month-to-month contracts.

What are the different MyRepublic ADSL plans?

Simplicity is always nice in an Internet provider, and MyRepublic makes things easy with just one ADSL plan on offer. By default, it comes with unlimited data and a basic pay-as-you-go phone service delivered through Voice over IP (VoIP) instead of a traditional phone line. If you're going to be on the phone a lot, you can add on optional call packs for unlimited calls both inside and outside Australia.

MyRepublic's ADSL plan comes with a maximum speed of 20Mbps, but many different factors will affect the speed you actually get at your house. The farther you live from your local telephone exchange, the older the network infrastructure installed in your area, and the more people accessing the network at the same time will all reduce the speed you ultimately receive.

If you're after a Naked DSL plan, however, you'll need to look elsewhere, as they're not part of MyRepublic's current offerings.

How much do MyRepublic ADSL plans cost?

The pricing structure for MyRepublic's ADSL plan is the same as its NBN plan, which places it among the cheapest ADSL and home phone bundles available. For $59.99 a month, you will get the default plan with unlimited data and pay-as-you-go calls on a 12-month contract. If you want the freedom of a month-to-month contract, you'll need to pay $69.99 a month instead.

For additional phone services, $10 extra a month will get you unlimited local and national calls, $20 extra a month will pack in unlimited local, national, and Australian mobile calls, and $30 extra a month will get you unlimited landline and mobile calls within Australia and to any of these 40 countries.

You won't need to pay any setup fees to get started with MyRepublic's ADSL plan, but you will need to purchase one of its NBN-ready Wi-Fi modems. On a 12-month contract, this will cost you just $1, but you'll have to pay the full $119 if you opt for a month-to-month contract. With the month-to-month option, though, you can cancel your service at any time and not worry about termination charges. Cancelling a 12-month contract early will incur a $199 early termination fee.

As an added bonus, because MyRepublic prices its ADSL and NBN plans the same, you'll be able to upgrade your service when the time comes with no changes to your monthly bill or contract term. The only cost involved in switching over to the NBN is a $69 administration fee.
