MyRepublic and Superloop NBN at a glance: Perks, savings and speeds

Both providers offer a decent amount of flexibility, with the option to go no-contract and even BYO modem.

This doesn’t do much beyond offering a static IP address to your internet plan, although customers with the add-on get access to special support through MyRepublic’s dedicated Discord server, and access to exclusive deals with MyRepublic’s partners. The static IP won’t enhance your speeds, but it will give you some extra internet security, especially if you want to host your own server. MyRepublic also offers VoIP services – Superloop doesn’t.

Each unlimited Superloop plan comes with a six-month welcome offer, with the prices slashed very generously over a temporary period for new customers.
