    Expected peak speeds? (The important bit)

    Don't do it, there Shit.

    I do hear a lot of good things about this company.
    Has it gone down hill lately?

    •  

      Was it ever good?

      Have my parents with them, purely as it's cheap, forget their customer service…. can take well over an hour each time you call.

      I've just left them for AussieBroadBand.
      ABB is faster and streams better than MR at half the speed. Was on 100Mbps with MR, only 50 ABB - but its a usable 50!

  •  

    That is a sweet price. I understand you only get what you pay for in this industry but giving people nbn100 speed for $79.95 for 12 months is great news for the cash strapped.

    OMFG still remember being on hold for 3 hours to get disconnection.
    And the Reps keep on postponing the whole process and due to that i had to pay an extra month.
    Points to be noted
    1) Overseas customer care center with no support
    2)Long waiting period for any trouble shooting
    3)when Aussie broadband is there why worrying with others :P

      Yeah I don't think I've had AussieBB support answer the phone in under 30mins on my 10 or so call since early Dec (lomgest was just under 60mins). Email support, I've had one response in 24hrs but follow ups were 10+days days (that's with follow up emails ignored).

      Then there's complaints. 3 weeks after their last contact and promise to get back asap and me chasing them up several times, they get back to me 2 nights ago, saying I had 5 days to respond!

      But their network is very good. I tired their 100/40 plan and I constantly got above 95/38 in peak (including to UK&US. So this 83 down from MR ahows why they're cheaper, they're rely on over subscribing.

      TLDR: Aussie probably has the best network out there. But support isn't always as good as many claim, but it is local.

        I've called Aussie BB a dozen times atleast since December. Worst case time was 30 mins. Most 10-15.

        •  

          How awful is their service that you had to call them a dozen times?

          • +1 vote

            @Wardaddy: Nice try. Polar opposite. My FTTN connection was faulty and they had to put me through to the NBN which they did and 3rd time around NBN sent out a Telstra tech as opposed to some idiot who wondered why I was using Ethernet to connect things when I should just use wifi…

            Aussie BB are amongst the best companies I've dealt with. It's not their fault my line had issues.

            But hey it's ok that my parents get 5 down with My Republic…. Fk sitting on the phone all day complaining to them when they don't fix it…

              @scuderiarmani: Nice try? I'm not trying anything, I don't have a dog in this fight. I'm on Telstra FTTP thanks. My perfect service is when you never have to ring them.

                @Wardaddy: Then don't defend a crud company. Especially at the expense of the one considered the best by most.

                •  

                  @scuderiarmani: I'm merely reporting the deal, not endorsing it, not defending anyone, and not attacking your precious ABB. Though I still wonder, "How awful is their service that you had to call them a dozen times?".

                    @Wardaddy: You obviously can't read. How is it Aussie BB's fault that my copper line wasn't great????

                    Geez you're embarrassing.

                    You reported a deal with an awful company that no one in their right mind will sign up for. Congrats.

                    •  

                      @scuderiarmani: This conversation with you is over now. You have become hysterical. And if you can't see that having to call a service provider a dozen times to get the service you are paying them for is crap service then there is nothing anyone can do to help your delusion.

                      •  

                        @Wardaddy: You have NFI, it's not Aussie Broadbands fault when there are physical problems with the Copper Line.

                        6 up votes say enough about your 'deal'.

                        Aussie Broadband meanwhile is getting credit even in this thread. Keep pretending it's my ISPs fault… and keep paying more at Telstra :)

                        I could have called My Republic or Telstra 15,000 times, My Republic wouldn't have fixed it, and Telstra would have just tried to extend my Wife's mobile plan instead…. as they always do when I go on chat asking about their 'speed boost' price. Service LOL.

        •  

          tried to call now (7:20pm Fri) 28 in the queue, expected wait time 36mins.
          Hmm that sounds pretty ambitious!

    Been with them for 12 months. Moved to ABB. Minimal difference for me.

    Call centre person I got was wonderful (Filipino) when I was disconnecting. Almost got me to stay with them. But had 1 month crew with abb and a friend waiting to be referred over.

    My experience:

    Terrible wait times for their customer service
    Terrible speeds
    During peak times I didn't get above 5Mbps

    Only good thing I have to say about them is that they let me out of my 12 month contract without any fee.

    The dynamic private IP address was one of the factors why I left MyRepublic, Exetel is cheaper and give static Ip at no extra charge.

    •  

      What are your Exetel peak speeds like?

      Static IPs are good. AussieBB has started to move customers across to CGNAT which seems to have all sorts of issues for gamers, home servers, etc

      •  

        You can call them and opt out from CGNAT.
        only took me 5 minutes with the waiting part till opting out.

        •  

          I'm not on it yet, my beef is they don't give you a heada up, you just get cut across and then have to find out the hard way.

          Of course if they'd implement ipv6…….
          :-) but that's been on the coming soon list for a few years.

          •  

            @supabrudda: Even for getting into IPv6 bandwagon,you can give them a call and opt in.:P
            Did you see the major overhaul ABB is having now in terms of infrastructure, i guess VPN speeds gonna improve far more i guess.
            Not that i am getting any less than 65MBPS to US and UK at the moment :D

    Don't waste your time and money and just go with AussieBB

  •  

    Customer service wait times are horrendous. Was with them for 3 years and the avg wait time was close to an hour., and different hours didn’t make a difference.

    Towards the end, most calls they couldn’t ressolve, always said it was other teams issue and they’ll pass it on. Surprise surprise, they didn’t pass anything on.

    Couldn’t get gamer option removed, and kept charging us.

    Best of luck with those who sign up.

    Oh yah, I had slow speeds with them too towards the end.

  •  

    I’ve been with them since they started. In the beginning there was a few teething problems, but I can’t speak more highly of them now with their speed, service or price..I have FTTN, price includes phone line, unlimited local and national calls and unlimited data.

  •  

    I wouldn't sign up for a 24 month NBN plan with anyone.

  •  

    Speeds seem ok according to the latest ACCC broadband report.

  •  

    Isn't Telstra unmetered 99$ with Foxtel? Unmetered not unlimited.

  •  

    I hope their speeds have improved, I was with them when they first launched ($60 for 100/40) they were absolutely appaulling. Full speed during the day, but at night it was so congested I had to tether my phone to my computer to get stuff done.

    I'd prefer a quality 50/20 service any day, over an oversubscribed 100/40.

  •  

    Charge extra for static ip. Dodo offers better deals imo. My speed is no where near 100 and evening speeds are congested…Still better than adsl2 but. Gonna switch do dodos 50 speed with static ip for $70 p/m

  •  

    I would strongly advise against MyRepublic, nothing but negative when I was with them. Took over 4 months to get a refund on an under performing connection, not to mention they don't even have POI's out of Sydney so you will suffer unless you are in Sydney.

  •  

    Most people I know on telstra $89 plan get free 100m speed boost, with unlimited phone calls within AU. So this is not tempting deal, but I am not going to neg it.

  •  

    MyRepublic won't let me cancel my account. I cancelled in December and I've had two new invoices since…don't know how many people have promised that I'm disconnected but I'm still connected…worst customer service there is

    all i like to say to myr is "GET F"
