Could MyRepublic make Australian internet great for the first time?
MyRepublic if you haven’t heard are an ISP. Originally based in Singapore, they have expanded to Indonesia and New Zealand and are launching in Australia. The date for launch is on Tuesday, 15th of November. MyRepublic are focusing largely on the gaming market. They offer a network optimised for low latency, high speeds and unlimited data. Whatever network you’re on, MyRepublic will ensure that it’s working to its maximum capability. The plan is a flat rate monthly fee of $69.99. Sounds pretty good, right? They are represented at PAX Aus in Melbourne this week and are offering a special discounted rate of $59.99 for gamers. Get in quick though, the deal is limited to the first 500 customers.
So, what’s included in the deal?
The ISP have partnered with Sony to offer a GAMER PS4 Pro fibre broadband bundle. This includes:
