MyRepublic dates Australian launch

4 Nov 2016

Singapore-based MyRepublic is taking aim at Australia’s existing ISPs, confirming it will launch a commercial offering over the National Broadband Network (NBN) infrastructure on 15 November, the Sydney Morning Herald reports. At launch MyRepublic will offer a tariff providing customers with downlink speeds of up to 100Mbps – dependent on which NBN technology they are connected to – and unlimited data usage. With this plan priced as AUD59.99 (USD46), the report notes that this compares favourably to similar offerings from telco’s already operating in the Australian broadband sector, which are typically priced at around AUD100 per month.

Commenting on the company’s plans for the market, MyRepublic chief executive Malcolm Rodrigues was cited as saying: ‘We’re purpose built for the NBN and everything we do is around NBN-based architecture, creating the first, true NBN product,’ adding: ‘Now that there are 3 million homes on the NBN it makes sense for us to enter the market.’
