How much does it cost to connect to MyRepublic?

  • If you connect on a 12 Month contract, you only pay $1 upfront and will receive our Wi-Fi Hub+ Modem, if you choose the no-lock in contract there is a $99 upfront fee including Wi-Fi Hub+. Your monthly plan fee will only be charged once your service becomes active.

What does the ‘Fastest nbn™ Speed’ mean?

  • MyRepublic wants everyone to have the best experience on the nbn™- that’s why we give everyone the fastest speed available at their location up to 100 Mbps download.

Why do different locations have different maximum speeds?

  • For nbn™ technologies such as Fibre to the Node (FTTN) and Fibre to the Basement (FTTB) there may be a Co-Existence Period. During this period, exchange based ADSL &/or special services may co-exist on the same network infrastructure as the nbn™ services. In this case, optimal speeds may not be possible due to interference from equipment or network provided by other services.   During this time- you will receive speeds between 50Mbps-100 Mbps. For nbn™ services on the Fixed Wireless (FW) network the maximum speed possible is 50Mbps download and 20 Mbps upload.

How long does it take to connect MyRepublic nbn™ Broadband service?

  • A new nbn™ connection will vary depending on if you have current nbn™ technology in place or if you need an nbn™ technician appointment.
  • Generally, a new connection will take between 3 -20 business days.
  • Once we have confirmed your order we will send you SMS and email updates with information on the progress of your service activation.
  • Please note, if you are in a New Development Area connection times may vary depending on your infrastructure and nbn™ requirements.

When should I cancel my previous service?

  • If you are on a FTTN or FTTB service, once your service has been transferred to MyRepublic, your connection with your previous ISP 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.

What does nbn™ ready mean?

  • If you connect to a MyRepublic ADSL plan, once nbn™ is available we will contact you to organise and provide you the fastest speed available at your location up to 100Mbps.
  • Your MyRepublic Wi-Fi Hub works on both ADSL and nbn™ networks so it’s a simple process of changing cables and connection once we notify you that nbn™ is available.
  • If you have selected the MyRepublic 12 month contract, your contract is with MyRepublic not with the plan, so it simply moves over to your new nbn™ connection.

Do I need to pay for my nbn™ appointment?

  • If you have existing telecommunication infrastructure into your home today, you will not pay for nbn™ installation.
  • If you don’t have any telecommunication infrastructure at your current home or have had existing telecommunication infrastructure removed, a $300 New Development Charge may apply. In this instance, we will contact you and seek agreement to proceed.
  • For more information on the nbn™ New Development Charge please click here.

What is an nbn™ co-existence period?

  • Customers who are in the nbn™  Fibre to the Node or Fibre to the Basement footprint  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.
