MyRepublic Launches Mobile Plans

MyRepublic said during a media briefing that the three plans – Smart, Mega and Xtra – will cost S$35, $55 and $85 a month for 7GB, 12GB and 25GB data, respectively.

The 25GB plan for Xtra subscribers will include 2GB roaming data for seven markets, namely Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Philippines and Taiwan, said MyRepublic CEO Malcolm Rodrigues.

To check out the plans, go to http://order.fibrebb.sg/mobile

For existing broadband customers, the company is also dangling incentives for them to sign up, if they haven’t done so. They stand to get 3GB more data for the Smart plan, and 8B more for the Mega and Xtra plans.

The mobile plans all come with features like “boundless data”, which will not penalise consumers for busting their data caps with extra charges but will see surfing speeds lowered instead. This was a feature announced when they launched two mobile plans for its existing customer base back in May.

MyRepublic plans 1

MyRepublic’s chief marketing officer Shivendra Singh said during the briefing that this, among other features, are to “ensure we are trustworthy” to the consumer. Unlimited data plans, he elaborated, are “not honest” as they usually come with hidden provisos, but its boundless data plans means “customers don’t need to worry about excess data charges”.

Mr Rodrigues also told Channel NewsAsia on the sidelines that based on customer response following the launch of Uno and Ultimate for “friends of MyRepublic”, feedback has been “good”, particularly for those who have busted their data caps and had their surfing speeds managed.

“It’s like when we drop from 4G to HSPA today. You probably can’t watch a high-definition video, but you can still do stuff like send WhatsApp messages,” he said.

MyRepublic plans 2

These plans will also have 1,000 minutes of talk time and 1,000 SMS text messages, free local delivery of SIM cards and activation, the company said, adding new customers can sign up from Thursday.

Key to the user experience is the MyRepublic mobile app, available for both iOS and Android devices, said Mr Singh. Users will be able to customise their mobile plan, such as signing up for data boosters or roaming packages on the fly, and track their usage from the app.

The intention behind its design is for users to do what they need within three clicks in the app, he added.

These on-the-go provisioning of services are enabled through the company’s “thick MVNO model”, which it said is first of its kind in Singapore.

CEO Rodrigues said it is a “multimillion-dollar network system” that allows it greater control over the delivery of services to customers compared to traditional MVNO arrangements which sees these operators just resell products from the main telco.

This appeared to be similar to rival MVNO Circles.Life’s platform Circles-X. When asked what’s the difference, Mr Singh declined to comment on its competitor’s products.

CONSUMERS TO BENEFIT FROM LOOMING COMPETITION

Analysts Channel NewsAsia spoke to ahead of the launch on Thursday predicted a period of fierce competition in the local telecoms market, with consumers the main beneficiaries.

Mr Shiv Putcha, contributing analyst at IDC, said the Singapore market is not big enough to support four full-fledged telcos and four MVNOs.

“At roughly 8.5 million subscriptions, the Singapore market is already over-penetrated,” Mr Putcha said. “We expect a period of fierce competitive intensity and there will be some clear winners and losers, with the incumbents, especially the smaller ones, likely to cede ground and market share.”

With the pending entrance of fourth telco TPG Telecom, as well as the introduction of new MVNOs in the past year, consumers will “benefit immensely” from lowered prices, higher data bundles and flexible plans, the analyst said.

He also expects to see the telco incumbents – Singtel, StarHub and M1 – make renewed investments on customer experience.

Canalys research analyst Nguyen TuanAnh echoed similar thoughts, saying that consumers will benefit from the rise of MVNOs.

He pointed to similar developments in Japan last year which suggest that full-fledged telcos, while benefiting from leasing spectrum to MVNOs, will also reduce prices to maintain their subscriber base.

These telcos also have more tools than just reducing costs, as they can turn to digital content for growth, the Canalys analyst said

For instance, while they may not match MVNOs in attractive price packages, bundling data with content such as free streaming of Spotify or Netflix for example, is a “great way” for them to remain subscribers and improve revenue.

MyRepublic Wifi Halo

Great Design. Great Performance.

Wi-Fi routers work best when placed out in the open. That’s why we designed the MyRepublic Wi-Fi Hub and Wi-Fi Halo to not only provide fast speeds for all your devices, but to fit in your living room.

The Fastest 802.11ac Wi-Fi Standard

Featuring the latest 802.11ac technology and up to 4×4 spatial streams, MyRepublic Wi-Fi routers offer data rates up to three times faster* than the previous 802.11n Wi-Fi standard.

Better Speeds with MU-MIMO and Beamforming

Get better performance with the Wi-Fi Halo with MU-MIMO technology allowing each device their own dedicated high-speed connection. Beamforming further focuses the Wi-Fi signal on each device, improving Wi-Fi speeds.

Simultaneous Dual-Band Support

Both the MyRepublic Wi-Fi Hub and Wi-Fi Halo transmit on 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands at the same time, allowing your devices to connect on the band allowing the fastest possible performance.

*Based on theoretical peak speeds. Actual speeds will likely be lower.

This is how the MyRepublic Wi-Fi Halo will make you believe in routers again

Your home router has one job: So why does it make it so hard to do that job? From dropped connections, to complicated setups, to indecipherable troubleshooting menus, to looking like a gaudy blot in the middle of your living room.

But the MyRepublic Wi-Fi Halo is different. Thank goodness it’s different. The first thing you’ll realize is that it doesn’t look like a mechanical bug that might rise to life and gobble your cats. Instead, the Wi-Fi Halo has a streamlined exterior with gently soft ambient lighting on its underside.

But don’t underestimate its minimalist design. The Wi-Fi Halo is a state of the art AC2200 dual-band router with a four-stream, four-antenna engine that features modern Multi-User (MU-MIMO) Beamforming technology for fast and reliable internet connections for multiple devices.

The Wi-Fi Halo also solves the most vexing parts about routers for most people: setting up and troubleshooting. A Setup Wizard helps you get connected in minutes and helps you to change your default passwords easily, the first line of defense against internet attacks.

Instead of a confusing interface that looks like a leftover from the 90s, the Wi-Fi Halo comes with a modern UI that anyone can use.

Instead of a confusing interface that looks like a leftover from the 90s, the Wi-Fi Halo comes with a modern UI that anyone can use.

A built-in firewall also secures your home network, and parental controls, as well as a Wi-Fi analyzer, gives you fine-tuned power over internet use. The router even comes with guest networks set up and easily toggled on, so you don’t have to worry about sharing your personal network’s password with visitors.

If you need help with the Wi-Fi Halo, MyRepublic customers can have router issues diagnosed and even fixed remotely by the MyRepublic customer service team, instead of having to wait for a technician to drop by.

With your permission, customer service agents can remotely fix common issues like checking the network connection status, checking which devices are connected, resetting the network password and updating the firmware.

It’s like having your own IT department ready to help you with Wi-Fi woes. And if you prefer not to have remote access to your Wi-Fi Halo, you can easily disable the function under its settings.

The Wi-Fi Halo normally commands a price tag of S$349, but new and existing MyRepublic customers can get a great deal on the router. Depending on their choice of MyRepublic fiber broadband plan, customers will receive a discount on their purchase of a new Wi-Fi router, ranging from $70 to $350 – the latter essentially making the Wi-Fi Halo available for free. Get your free Halo with one of these great plans here.
