    I'm with iiNet nbn. I'm assuming the speed etc is going to be exactly the same since it's the same wires. Can anyone confirm this? I'm in applecross wa.

    •  

      I believe it will depend on who iinet's wholesaler is. If they own part of their own bandwidth or if they are using telstra/optus.

        Optus

          @samfisher5986:

          Hi Steptoe and samfisher5986,

          For 20% of our customers use Optus POIs (points of interconnect) for our nbn service.

          However we are in the process of building our own POIs with a view to migrating all customers who are on an Optus POI onto our own.

          Once this exercise is complete all MyRepublic customers will use MyRepublic infrastructure for their nbn service.

          Thanks.

          @MyRepublic:

          What about your international link?

        •  

          @samfisher5986:

          I find their international link great! Much better than Skymesh was able to offer me. When things are slower speed for me to the west coast of the US is around 67Mbps and to the east coast around 60Mbps. Average US speed I tend to get is ~80-90Mbps.

      Backhall has nothing to do with NBN connected wires unfortunately and is where the problems start showing up. Re-sellers of NBN aggregate CVC they purchase. Myrepublic resells someone elses CVC on NBN to make that worse. Its very luck of the draw. That said I have a friend who came over from IINET who is quite happy

    Other than them being absolutely hopeless during the installation period (I had to keep chasing things up, as they didn't notify me about anything) they've been good in my experience.

    I pay an extra $10/Mo for the Static IP aka Gamer Plan

    Current line sync: ↓ 108,2 Mbit/s ↑ 44,2 Mbit/s
    Actual speed (over Wi-Fi on my phone just now) http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/3143290915

    Lastly, like any good OzBargainer I sold the modem they sent me on eBay and kept my own one.

    •  

      Did you test how fast it was on the modem provided?

      I was getting a unstable 20mbps down with a tpg router, replaced it with a nighthawk and now getting stable 90mbps+ down

      •  

        definite issue i get fullspeed 95/37 mbps when i tested their modem.

      •  

        any particular model of Nighthawk you recommend?

        • +1 vote

          I went with the 7000 model.
          D700 is the modem/router, so that's best suited for FTTN.
          r7000 is just router, suited for FTTP because FTTP doesn't require a modem.

          I went with the d7000 because officeworks were selling it cheaper than the r7000 even though I have FTTP.

      •  

        @Jarr0d I didn't open it, so no.

    •  

      People will buy there stock modem? i got two of them 1st one and then another they sent when i was simply transferring FTTP NBN to a new house when i moved.

      How much did you get for it?

      •  

        $42.30 + $13.80 postage (5 bids). Started at $1 No Reserve.

        •  

          Nice might put mine up lol

    •  

      Pretty much the same experience I've had with them. Once the initial connection (FTTP) was completed, which took ages, I haven't had any issues.

  •  

    What are my rights if the advertised speeds are not consistent as advertised?

    I am sure I have the option to walk away to another provider ……BUT how do I prove speed degradation and what is the penalty to the ISP? I am sure it would be a matter of many reported cases and some calls to the ombudsman ….long process…waste of time and money!

    Well I am with www.buzztelco.com.au for last 10 days. Super fast speed on HFC NBN.
    Speed is always around 90mb download and 38 mb upload on wifi.
    They also provided free netcomm modem .
    Australian call centre is a plus.
    You don't have to compromise with Indian accent in Mumbai .
    A+++ service 😀😍

    •  

      Yeah I have absolutely no complaints with buzz telco, Im getting 90mbs+ on FTTP (all times) and it got activated in less than 12 hours from signing up. Their call centre is in qld and it was such a relief to be talking to an aussie lol

      •  

        I just (almost) went through the connection process with them. I am surprised I am required to pay before any fields for disclosing the site address are completed. The pre-sales contact page does not work at all. Very strange and underwhelming at this point! Anyone have a real contact phone number?

    •  

      Not bad for $70 a month. But we'll see if the performance remains where it's at.

    •  

      Noticed they do a no contract - no modem option too which is great for the same $$/pm.

      Hopefully their performance is still this good come January when my existing iinet contract is up.

  •  

    these guys are sick. we went from internode 25/5 to my republic 100/40 and the only thing i have to say is ' some ' congestion during peak times but really nothing else thats reflects bad on them!!!

    My suburb will get NBN (FTTN) in September. Is there way to lock in this price for my future order i.e. pre-order?

    •  

      Hi PLA74,

      Unfortunately locking in a price for a future connection is not an option.

      We will be releasing our new pricing on the 1st September 2017.

      Thank you.

    My experience with MyRepublic in point form:
    *Took 3 months and the line wasn't even connected
    *had to go to TIO to get a refund/cancel the service because Customer service is non-existent
    *had the balls to charge for service even though they couldn't get the internet connected
    *wasted 3 months of my life because it was cheap.

    Word of advice go with another carrier, is the savings per month worth the hassle?

    • +2 votes

      I had a similar experience.

  • +3 votes

    MyRepublic have been terrible to deal with.

    1. At the time of signing up, they didn't ask if we consented to the new development fee
    2. Because there was no consent to the new development fee, our appointment to have the NBN installed was cancelled with no communication from them. I lost a days work due to this.
    3. Called to make another appointment the same day and was told their system was down and i'd get a call back that night or the next day. Didn't happen
    4. Called every day for almost a week and was continuously promised call backs that never happened
    5. Lodged a TIO complaint and they refused to speak to me about my account.
    6. Finally spoke to someone and all they had to do was lodge a new connection request, rather than keep adding notes onto my original connection request

    All up, it took from the 8th of July until the 16th of August to get it sorted and an internet connection. Pretty useless for someone that works from home.

  •  

    My experience with MyRepublic was great - things got connected fine, modem works well, and I get higher line speed (sync speed) than I did with Exetel. My actual speed usually peaks at 65Mbps/26Mbps (line speed 80Mbps/28Mbps), though the max speedtest result I ever got was 74Mbps. I am on FTTN. I don't experience major speed drops during peak periods, and stability is near perfect.

    A friend of mine had nothing but trouble. He is 300m from a cabinet on FTTN, so should be getting 100Mbps. Instead he gets 25Mbps with a flaky connection that disconnects every few hours. MyRepublic has been hard to reach and did nothing to help him. In all fairness, it is actually an infrastructure fault that the NBN should address, but the NBN said "it's optimal" (because anything >=25Mbps is considered "within spec").

    Many of the complaints people have about their NBN ISP is more to do with the NBN than the ISP.

    Better off going with the Telecube deal. An extra $10 month nets you 1TB peak and 5TB off-peak data, no lock in contract, great speeds and customer service. Although there is a $99 set up fee.

    •  

      How do you know the speeds will be great though? MyR some people get good speeds others don't. But they have a lot more customers in which you can get the negative feedback. Some small ISP is not going to have enough customers to generate widespread feedback on performance.

      • +1 vote

        The easiest way to tell is to ask 'Does the ISP provide unlimited quota plans?'

        • If yes, then peak hour performance will be comprimised.
        • If no, then top 10% of heavy users will avoid the ISP and performance is likely to be okay.

        The reason that customers experience difference speeds is that it only takes a few customers on a PoI with unlimited data plans thrashing their connections to cause an issue. ISPs with quotas avoid this by capping speeds for users.

        •  

          The easiest way to tell is to ask 'Does the ISP provide unlimited quota plans?'

          Let's be real. 1TB+5TB is effectively unlimited.

        •  

          @lostn: Theoretical monthly limits on 100Mbps is 32TB, 1Gbps limit is 324TB. Unfortnately there are few people who will download constantly just because they can as explained by the economic theory tragedy of the commons.

        •  

          @mathew42: The people who download more than 6TB have to be outliers. If this minority of people can bring down a network for everyone else, there's not near enough investment into the bandwidth.

          I don't even know what you could download to even reach those amounts, legally or otherwise. Don't say stream 4K 24/7. People sleep and have work/school. Even if you downloaded pirated software, 6TB is a lot of software.

          Hard Disk Space would become a big issue fast.

        •  

          @lostn: People downloading more than 1TB are outliers. The issue is not what people are doing but simply that it is possible and it impacts on everyone at the same POI negatively.

          Investment requires revenue and the reality is that ISP customers are not prepared to pay.

        There are many happy customers over in the whirlpool thread. My personal experience is limited as I only connected with Telecube yesterday but I have so far gotten regular speedtest.net results of approx 93/37. Upload to OneDrive was also consistently over 30Mbps. Oh I'm on HFC in Nunawading, VIC.

    I've had nothing but trouble with Myrepublic, from slow speeds to 2 month wait for changing address (and then double charging for 2 more months). I would go with another company when my contract is up.

    I've been waiting ~12 months for MR to add my address to their NBN register (even though we've had FTTP since January 2016).

      Hi yojabbajabba,

      We have received your message regarding your address. We will be cross checking the address with nbn's information and reply accordingly today.

      Thank you.

    Beware! I've been with them since last December, took a month of constant calls to get anyone from NBN to come out and set up my FTTN connection. Customer service are exactly what you'd expect for a $59 service - sh1thouse.

    Had a day recently where the internet went out, Waited on the phone for over an an hour to talk to someone as their website didn't show any issues in my area.

    Eventually someone answered, told me that the whole are was out, wasn't their problem it was NBN's problem and wouldn't credit me for the day of lost internet, or the trouble for waiting on the phone for over an hour as their website wasn't updated.

    Whether it was their fault or not, a crappy $5 credit to my account would have kept a customer happy. But instead I took time out of my day to share my experience with y'all and if only one person reading this hesitates or avoids signing up then I think my job is done

    @myrepublic can you please take a look at these 5mnths worth of speed test results and pass them on to your networking team? Terrible congestion every day i have had the service (Aspley POI). Your "help"centre don't want to know about it and insist on troubleshooting my local connection.

    I use MyRepublic. FTTP. 100/40 most days. Happy customer.

    DANGER
    Avoid MyRepublic at all cost.

    Just finished call with 30min hold.
    They said if the speed is from 5 Mbps + then you are in the advertised limit of up to 100/40 plan so you can't cancel it unless forkout $199!

    If you are not sure OR wants to join them clarify with them & they will confirm this over phone. By the way I have FTTP & speed has dropped half & they said it's all good it is within limit. I am paying full price for half connection so AVOID don't look at only price if you are lucky you may get good speed for some time then you will start paying more for less speed.

    Save your self from 12 month contract.

    • +3 votes

      I wouldn't join them for that reason but if you were already with them, a call to the TIO will get you out of contract.

    Has anyone moved from TPG to MR? TPG has been great in the location I am in but would like to hear if anyone went from TPG to MR. Note I have never faced any congestion with TPG. My Suburb is PASADENA in SA.

    Check with Buzz Telco or Telecube before approaching this mob.

    FTTN house.
    Signed up for myrepublic.
    Consistently got 3mbps during peak.
    Tried a different modem asus dsl ac1900. My Republic refused to help set this up. Got node locked or whatever it's called. They Will only assist using their modem.
    Instructed them to cancel my service. Took 1 month for confirmation after mentioning Ombudsman. Have waived contract fee but still invoiced for monthly spend.
    Approached Aussie BB using 6 month double data OzBargain deal. They had me connected within 30 minutes of hanging up from them.
    Full assistance with modem set up.
    Consistent data speeds - no congestion.
    Just my two cents…

  •  

    Hi, I've recently ordered an adsl plan and will be moving away from tpg. Problem is that my area is not nbn ready. When it does become ready would I have to pay extra to get on nbn or will I be able to switch over To nbn on the highest speed? I've already received the modem but connection takes place next week.

  •  

    I've had MyRepublic FTTP connection in Canberra since the start of the year, took about five days to get up and running. Speeds always in the upper region and the international speeds are fantastic. Feel for those on FTTN….. Especially since NBN thinks an 18 month coexistence period is suitable, it should be much shorter.

    I'm with MyRepublic in Cranbourne VIC and just did a speedtest, got 92 down. Doesn't really go below 80 which is awesome. Been happy with them so far, will remain with them as long as speeds don't suffer.

    •  

      FTTP if anyone is wondering.

  •  

    I'm very happy with MR too. My speedtest consistently shows 78-80/34, and downloads from fast servers (or torrents) most times of the day or night can be as high as 9MB/s.

    Great value.

    Oh - FTTN, about 300m away.

  •  

    It looks like the new deal is $69.99/month, a $10 increase, but now including landline calls. https://myrepublic.net/au/personal/nbn/pricing/
    My experience with MyRepublic has been good; I get ~33mbits/sec off peak, up from 1mbits on ADSL, northern Sunshine Coast. Massive improvement, and cheaper than the old "Off Net" regional ADSL ripoff.
