Never even made it onto the service. Apparently they sent a text message asking for details of my old provider, but sent it to the wrong number (their mistake). They then cancelled my signup because I hadn't replied to them, however didn't notify me. I tried to call them several times to find out progress, and only after 6 weeks managed to get through to find out that they had cancelled my signup. Luckily by then it was what I wanted anyway, especially as I had then checked out other reviews online (eg Geekzone). ...read more

Customer service is quite lame. It took me 4 months to have fibre connected when I moved to a new house and they charged me while I had no Internet connection (got it refunded later on though)

Pros:

Speed isn't that bad. They told us that my plan has been upgraded to 900 from 100mps but we couldn't tell the difference.

Cons:

They ask me to contact the Ultra Fast Fiber myself and arrange all the installation etc. It was a disaster when I moved and tried to reconnect.

My daughter was sent to Starship from BOP after I revived her with CPR, we were there for a couple of months and the bill fell behind, when I received a very harshly worded warning of suspension and termination notification, I called asked for an extra week to pay and they refused adding massive stress to my family. Sadly I found many others that had similar stories with MyRepublic. The company just doesn't care about its customers

Pros:

Speed is reasonable

Cons:

The company doesn't care about customers.
Today a customer service person told me that their call centre is now offshore and outsourced.

Super fast internet, didn't experience slowdowns. Great speedy service.

Accounts page sucks, can't really do anything like see usage and such

Pros:

Always fast, didnt have any issues in the 2 years I was with them

Service is amazing, get to talk with support staff within 10 mins every time (which was only a few times, which was great)

Cons:

Accounts page is terrible

Started with these guys and could not speak highly enough of them.
Then something happened, they suspended my service because they couldn't take money from my card after they were advised by me a month earlier that I had changed my card.
I called and asked them to re-activate my service, which took 2 days and they sounded like it was too much of an effort.
I decided to change providers as it was clear that something had happened to this company affecting customer service.

I called on 11 separate days over the next three weeks and was on hold for more than 122 minutes in total and still never spoke to anyone, and this was to advise them that I was terminating the contract as set out in the T's and C's.
Then they charged me a $24 termination fee (taken from my bank account on the same day they advised of it) and when I questioned it by email, you guessed it, no reply.
If you like good customer service, stay away from these guys.

Their speed is fantastic but if you have an issue and need to contact them forget it! I'm starting to wonder if there is actually anyone manning the phones

Pros:

Great speed and price.

Cons:

Forget about trying to ring them. Wait times are the worst.. Right now I am on hold with them... been over an hour. They must have all gone home. Was going to get my mate onto the service but not now. Wouldn't put him through the shonky service. ...read more
