What happened to MyRepublic NBN?
MyRepublic released an official statement on December 24, 2022, stating, “We have made the decision to focus on a profitable business as we move into the next phase of our journey.”
What happens to MyRepublic customers?
All MyRepublic customers should already have been informed of the upcoming changes and will be automatically switched to the other NBN service, Superloop.
If you are already a MyRepublic customer, you don’t have to do anything and all your MyRepublic details like conditions, inclusions, bonuses, speed tier, monthly fees and cancellation rights will stay the same even after the switch in Superloop. The merger is expected to be completed in February 2023.
What are the plan differences between MyRepublic and Superloop?
The two NBN providers offer the same NBN tariff levels. However, Superloop’s plans are slightly more expensive. Additionally, Superloop’s NBN 1000 plan capped speeds at 500Mbps, while MyRepublic’s previously hit the full 1000Mbps.
In terms of pricing, Superloop has agreed to consider pricing for migrating customers. However, if customers decide to switch plans, most MyRepublic customers can expect to pay more if they switch to Superloop — especially at higher speed tiers. For example, MyRepublic charged $99 for its full price NBN 250 plan. For comparison, Superloop costs $119.95.
For those considering auto-fusion, Superloop’s plans are as follows:
What if MyRepublic customers don’t want to switch to Superloop?
Since most MyRepublic plans are contract-free, you don’t need to migrate with Superloop. This is simply an automatic process. Customers still have the right to browse and choose another provider if they wish. However, this is their responsibility and they risk losing the honored pricing agreement between MyRepublic and Superloop.
