MyRepublic to take on telcos with NBN services

Singapore-based internet service provider MyRepublic aims to shake up the Australian broadband market by launching high-speed, unlimited broadband services over the NBN on 15 November.

The operator plans to launch services at the fastest NBN speeds available depending on the technology used in the area — up to 100 Mbps — at a single price of $59.99 per month.

MyRepublic Australia Managing Director Nicolas Demos said the company will provide localised customer services from Sydney, and will differentiate through a focus on engineering, innovation and speed.

“It is time to educate Australians on the value of quicker speeds without the restrictions of data caps. Australia has the 48th fastest average internet connection speed in the world,” he said, citing Akamai’s series of State of the Internet reports.

“Over 80% of Australian customers on the NBN are currently running on speeds similar to ADSL technology. We will deliver customers the best speed they can get — at their location — with our unlimited plan offer with local support at a fair price.”

MyRepublic has a strong focus on speed in its home market — the company was the first ISP in the market to offer a residential 1 Gbps broadband plan at S$50 ($47) per month.

The company has also been pursuing regional expansion in APAC, having recently launched broadband services in New Zealand and Indonesia.
