MyRepublic Business provides the choice of two nbn™ plans for customers connected to the nbn™ via FTTP, FTTN, FTTB, FTTC and HFC technologies.
MyBusiness Lite: This is associated with the nbn™ 50^ product which provides a maximum access line speed of 50Mbps (download) and 20Mbps (upload)
MyBusiness Pro: This is associated with the nbn™ 100^ product which provides a maximum access line speed of 100Mbps (download) and 40Mbps (upload)
For nbn™ services that are connected via Fixed Wireless (FW) the only available plan is the MyBusiness Lite plan (uses nbn™ 50^) due to the maximum download speed of Fixed Wireless technology being 50Mbps nominal access line speed.
nbn™ technology nbn™ Tier^
FTTP nbn™ 50 or nbn™ 100
HFC nbn™ 50 or nbn™ 100
FW nbn™ 50
FTTN, FTTB and FTTC nbn™ 50 or nbn™ 100
^nbn™ 50 and nbn™ 100 refers to nominal access line speed. Speeds on both plans are variable and you will typically experience slower speeds than the maximum access line speed available on your plan, particularly during peak times (7-11pm). Your speed will vary based on the technology connecting your location to the nbn™ and will vary for a number of reasons including the content being downloaded by the end-user, your distance and the quality of the copper from the node, basement or curb for FTTN, FTTB and FTTC services, backhaul networks (including the performance of interconnecting infrastructure not operated by MyRepublic), and your hardware and software configuration. Devices connected by Wi-Fi may experience slower speeds than those connected by Ethernet cable.
For nbn™ technologies such as Fibre to the Node (FTTN), Fibre to the Basement (FTTB) and Fibre to the Curb (FTTC) there will be a co-existence period for the first 18 months after nbn™ is installed in your area. During this period, exchange based ADSL &/or special services may co-exist on the same network infrastructure as nbn™ services and your speed may be affected, this is due to the line being shared with existing copper services as well as the distance from the exchange.
For nbn™ services on the Fixed Wireless (FW) network the maximum nbn™ tier* is ‘nbn™ 50’, this tier provides a maximum access line speed of 50Mbps (download).
If you are on a FTTN or FTTB service, once your service has been transferred to MyRepublic, your connection with your previous service provider will automatically cancel.
If you are on a Fixed Wireless (FW) & Fibre to the Premise (FTTP), please retain your existing connection with your previous ISP until you have set up your MyRepublic connection, once you are up and running, contact your previous ISP to cancel your previous connection.
If you have an ADSL service and are moving to an nbn™ service, once your service has been transferred to MyRepublic, your connection with your previous service provider will automatically cancel.
We provide you the first available appointment available, if you need to reschedule your appointment please contact the Business Customer Service on 1300 MYR BIZ (1300 697 249) at least 3 working days before your scheduled appointment date to arrange. For our contact details please click here.

If you have existing telecommunication infrastructure into your business premises today, you will not pay for nbn™ installation if we connect your service on your existing infrastructure.
If you don’t have any telecommunication infrastructure at your current business premises, have had existing telecommunication infrastructure removed, or would like a second line into the property a $300 New Development Charge or $300 Subsequent Installation charge of may apply. In this instance, we will contact you and seek agreement to proceed.
If you would like a service connected

For customers who are connected to the nbn™ via Fibre to the Node, Fibre to the Basement or Fibre to the Curb (FTTC) technology have a period of 18 month from when nbn™ was officially available to make the switch to nbn™. During this period nbn™ powers down the speed to ensure customers who are still yet to make the switch and still on the old telecommunications network are not impacted. Your speed may be affected due to interference from equipment or network provided by other services.
On 1 April 2016, nbn™ introduced a New Development Charge which is applicable to all nbn™ Service Providers. If your premises has been classified by nbn™ as a new development, MyRepublic will need to pass on the charge from nbn™ of $300 inc. GST. We will contact you if this is the case and seek permission to charge you for this, unfortunately if you decline this charge we are unable to proceed with your order.
Your appointment date can be rescheduled due to the following reasons, this is outside of our control:
High workload with technicians in the area;
Adverse weather conditions where it has been deemed unsafe to carry out the installation of the service and;
Additional Infrastructure is required to connect your home, that cannot be completed within the assigned appointment.
On the 27th November 2017, nbn™ announced their new initiatives to raise the standard of service quality on the nbn™ HFC network. nbn™ is temporarily pausing all new orders over the HFC network from the 11th December 2017.
See how this initiative may affect you:
– New nbn™ HFC customers joining MyRepublic: If you are in a serviceable nbn™ HFC area, you need to place your order with MyRepublic by the 9th of December 2017.
– Active MyRepublic nbn™ HFC customers: If you have a current MyRepublic nbn™ HFC service, you don’t need to do anything, nbn™ is working in the background to optimise the network.
– If you have already submitted your order for a MyRepublic nbn™ HFC connection: If you submitted your order prior to the 9th of December 2017, you don’t need to do anything, your order will be completed in due course.
Once nbn™ has completed the work to connect your business premises to the nbn™ Fibre to the Curb (FTTC) network, MyRepublic will notify you via email and SMS that your service is now active and ready to be used. Once you have received the notification from MyRepublic you can now proceed to set up your nbn™ FTTC Connection Device and your MyRepblic modem. Once set up, your equipment it may take up to 15 minutes to successfully connect to the nbn™ network. The set up will be complete once the Connection light on the nbn™ Connection Device turns solid blue.

You can cancel your order without penalty and your modem payment refunded by contacting Customer Service prior to receiving notification that your service has been activated and we will access your account.
