MyRepublic Launches First NBN-Powered Plan for Gamers
Intense, uninterrupted gaming only means one thing — super-fast internet. And while many providers offer value-for-money plans with reliable speed, it’s a different story when you use your data for gaming and streaming.
You can always upgrade your speed for a higher monthly plan fee, sure, but wouldn’t it be ideal to have your NBN plan designed for top-action gaming in the first place?
With this in mind, MyRepublic offers unlimited broadband plans that are just right for gamers. The plans under the Gamer Pro umbrella are specifically catered to gamers, and because they’re powered by either NBN 50 or NBN 100, their speed is easily guaranteed. More importantly, Gamer Pro plans give you access to MyRepublic’s network, which is optimised to meet your gaming and streaming needs. After all, your satisfaction with the experience is basically a matter of speed.
If there’s one thing that makes MyRepublic stand out, it’s the simplicity of their plans — and by simple they mean only top-end NBN speeds. Their most basic unlimited NBN plan, for instance, uses NBN 50 for $69.99/month. This price point is notably cheaper compared to what other providers have to offer. In most cases, you’ll only get the standard speed for the same price range. With MyRepublic it’s simple — just fast speeds. You sign up to one of their NBN plans and you’re given the fastest connection available for a cheap monthly plan fee.
Gamer Pro Plans
And now onto the good stuff. Starting with the Gamer Pro Essential plan, MyRepublic offers unlimited NBN (NBN 50) to gamers for $79.99/month. For the speediest speed available, there’s the Gamer Pro Premium plan, powered by NBN 100 for $94.99/month. Overall, Gamer Pro plans guarantees super fast data plus custom routing and static IP. For further convenience and efficiency, these plans are also provided with hefty inclusions, such as a home phone service equipped with unlimited calls to Aussie landlines. What’s more is that you get a $200 discount off the PlayStation®4 500GB Fortnite Bundle.
Extra call features are available for a fee. Need to make mobile calls? Get MyRepublic’s Aussie Wide for only $10/month. For international calls, you can upgrade to International 40 to make international calls to 40 landlines and 30 mobile destinations for $20/month. Otherwise, your monthly plan fee is retained.
That’s either $79.99 for the Gamer Pro Essential plan or $94.99 for the Gamer Pro Premium plan. The connection fees are waived and you only need to add $1 for the Wi-Fi Hub if you sign up for any of the Gamer Pro plan on a 12-month term. You can also choose to maximise your home’s internet speed by upgrading your Wi-Fi Hub to MyRepublic’s Halo modem for only $99.
What About Other Fees?
Gamer Pro plans are on a 12-month term. Hence, customers canceling before that will need to pay an Early Termination Fee of up to $220 ($20/month) if the service is terminated during the minimum service term. It will be calculated by the number of full months remaining in the contract plan. If you’ve signed up for the NBN 50 plan and wish to upgrade to NBN 100, there’s a speed upgrade fee of $15/month.
What Else Does MyRepublic Offer?
MyRepublic is also well-known for their NBN and ADSL plans. The telco’s NBN plans start with the Unlimited Essential (NBN 50) at $69.99/month and end with the Unlimited Premium (NBN 100) at $89.99/month. There’s only one ADSL unlimited plan, also at $69.99/month. All plans include a home phone service for unlimited local and national calls to Aussie landlines. The upfront cost to cover the Wi-Fi hub will depend on your chosen contract option — $99 for month-to-month, $60 for 12 months, and $1 for 24 months.
