MyRepublic

MyRepublic is the New Zealand’s first fibre broadband only Internet Service Provider (ISP). Their plans are truly unlimited and they're ready to unleash the potential of their fibre broadband network from Whangarei up north to Invercargill down in south. They believe in delivering an awesome internet experience for all kiwis at mass-market prices. All this with no lag, no limits and no holding back.

Beyond ultra-fast internet access, their Pure, Gamer and Business fibre broadband plans provide a customised, enhanced level of service that goes far beyond what is possible on older technologies such as ADSL, VDSL or Cable.

MyRepublic started in Singapore in 2011, where they shifted the ISP landscape dramatically and now they plan to do the same here. MyRepublic is committed to delivering the benefits of the UFB for all kiwis.

Response from the ISP
Hi Kaye, based on my review my live chat teammate was able to resolve your concern last September 20,2021. As we continue to evolve and adapt to more efficient customer service, we have transitioned to Live Chat. While we offer support over the phone, the majority of our support is over Live Chat. You don't need to put up with lengthy IVRs or wait times anymore and we can answer your questions on the spot. This also gives you the ability to multi-task; you can get on doing something else while we resolve your issue for you. Thank you, The Team @ MyRepublic

My Republic were great to deal with initially, they had a phone that they used to talk to you with (wow) then they kept the phone number but ditched the phone (grrr). Communicating with a provider online about an internet problem is a nonsense, e.g., after waiting for 20+ minutes for a tech person who instructs a reboot, connection is then lost, reconnecting to a tech person takes another 20 mins and is likely to be another person who needs the explanation all over again, followed by another instruction which results in disconnecting from the internet and on it goes. Another annoying aspect was the default response that the problem was at my end when it turned out not to be the case. ...read more

The worst customer support I have come across.

I recently moved house after using their service for over a year. I requested a new connection which took me to an online JotForm to fill out (completely useless and uninformative). I heard nothing back from them, and they gave me no option to contact them to query progress. Their webchat support app didn't work on my phone, iPad or laptop, so I couldn't reach them to speak in real-time. Because I run my business online, I was forced to contact another provider (Orcon - great service and fast response). I then emailed MyRepublic to cancel my account, heard nothing back, but was sent a payment reminder for the upcoming month. I emailed again to say that I had tried to cancel my account, to which they took four days to respond and ensured me that my account would be terminated. Then last night, I checked my bank statement and saw that I had been charged for the month ahead.

Internet speed is good but stay away from these people if you need decent customer support that cares about their customers.

Worst customer support Ive ever come across! They don't offer phone support!! Live chat takes forever and waiting times are 30mins plus. Being waiting since last Sunday for connection and they are still charging me for wifi I can't use. Have now canceled my connection due to time wasting. Do not connect to them

As we continue to evolve and adapt to more efficient customer service, we have transitioned to Live Chat. We are actively working to get back to our less than a minute response on Live Chat. Our Install team sends out order updates. I am unable to pull up your account to review your feedback. Thank you for leaving us a review. Regards, The Team @ MyRepublic
