Go above and beyond with MyRepublic's new premium broadband bundles
Go above and beyond with MyRepublic Broadband
Yes, it is that time of the year again.
With the festive season just around the corner, everyone is already thinking of how they want to spend their end-of-year break. What about you? Given the current circumstances, it’s not the best time to travel overseas, so perhaps staying at home and relaxing over the holidays would be a better alternative. Still, you won’t be able to enjoy that without a solid and reliable broadband connection.
Well then, here’s where we patch you through to MyRepublic’s new premium offerings: the Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Console Edition, Google Nest Audio and TP-Link Deco X60 WiFi Mesh 1Gbps broadband bundles.
Secure the MyRepublic advantage
When it comes to video gaming and media streaming in 2020, your worst enemy isn’t that one guy who’s screaming into his mic all the time, nor is it that traitor who sold out his allies to the villain for money - it’s a bad internet connection. But with many popular services nowadays requiring the use of the Internet, just having a “stable connection” isn’t enough anymore - you need to go above and beyond.
Boasting the #1 Netflix Streaming and Download speeds among all ISPs in Singapore, MyRepublic Broadband has certainly got an impressive track record. Of course, the ultra-high speeds aren’t just useful for streaming – they’re also extremely welcomed in online video games. At the time of writing, MyRepublic has been consistently achieving the #1 spot for Steam download speeds* as well, and speaking of gaming, let’s take a look at their first offering, the Nintendo Switch broadband bundle.
Switch up your broadband formula
Back by popular demand, MyRepublic’s Nintendo Switch bundle makes a return with the service provider’s super-fast 1Gbps broadband plan at S$59.99/mth. This time though, you get the latest version that's inspired by Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing: New Horizons Edition not only comes with a physical copy of the hit game, but you also get a lovely pastel green and blue Joy-Con controllers that are white on the back, white wrist straps and a white Nintendo Switch dock that's adorned with images of recognizable game characters. To top it off, the console’s extensive library of great games, many of which feature online gameplay and matchmaking too means that you can get even more value out of your speedy broadband and the Switch console bundle. That, or you could just hook it up to the TV and have some fun with your loved ones at home.
Alternatively, for gamers who already own a Nintendo Switch Console, or find little use having a second set, MyRepublic’s GAMER Broadband is a great option to enhance your gaming experience. Apart from having ultra-low and ultra-stable latency, this plan also features custom routing to overseas game servers to ensure your gaming experience is tailored for maximum satisfaction thanks to engineers who listen and optimise the network. There’s even live latency monitoring for you to monitor the best servers to play your games on.
A full-bodied experience
However, if you’re not much of a gamer and just prefer to curl up and watch cat videos on YouTube, you’d know the worst thing that can probably happen during an exciting episode is when the connection gets choppy. So, in that case, you might want to consider MyRepublic’s new 1Gbps Google Nest Audio Bundle at $45.99/mth. Apart from tossing in a free Google Nest Audio unit so you can have quality audio to pair with your shows, this bundle also features the quintessential 1Gbps MyRepublic Broadband plan, ensuring that all your drama-watching bases are covered – connection stability, sound and streaming quality.
That’s not all this bundle has to offer, though - the Google Nest Audio unit has other uses too. It responds to various commands via voice recognition and it’s also part of Google’s revolutionary Nest ecosystem, meaning you can hook it up to your other Nest speakers to create a solid all-around soundstage - perfect for movie nights, or when you just want to chill out with some relaxing tunes throughout your whole house. Check out our review of the Google Nest Audio to see how well it fares in our use and you’ll see why this MyRepublic bundle is a good idea.
Seamless streaming like never before
As for the third bundle, which costs $57.99/mth (usually priced at $59.99/mth), MyRepublic is once again tossing in their blazing fast 1Gbps broadband plan in addition to a TP-Link Deco X60 WiFi Mesh (3-pack) kit that's worth S$539 at no extra cost. What's more, you also get a TP-Link webcam to complete your networking ecosystem.
The primary offering for this third package is all about connection stability, making sure you get the same speeds anywhere at home. And with three mesh networking nodes bundled with this dual-band TP-Link Deco X60 WiFi Mesh system, it’s more than enough to blanket most homes with excellent connectivity.
This means your favourite Twitch stream or YouTube video doesn’t make the slightest dip in quality even if you’re walking from the living room to the bedroom upstairs. It also supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 standards with speeds of up to 3,000Mbps (utilising both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands), and this gives you the freedom of future-proofing your home network. So even if your main router is on the ground floor, you’ll still get to enjoy speedy Wi-Fi 6 connections and a great streaming experience throughout your whole home by spacing out the TP-Link mesh networking nodes across your house.
