MyRepublic launches three mobile plans for all users

MyRepublic officially launched its mobile plans for all users today, following an initial launch for existing broadband subscribers last month. As an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator), MyRepublic will be using StarHub's infrastructure to provide its telco services.

Mobile plans start at S$35 for 7GB, and increase to S$55 for 12GB, or S$85 for 25GB. These plans will be marketed as "Smart 35", "Mega 55" and "Xtra 85" respectively, though we're not sure if it's a good idea to name the plans by its cost.

Customers who are also subscribers to MyRepublic's fiber broadband services will receive an additional 3GB data on the S$35 plan, or an additional 8GB data on the S$55 and S$85 plans.

All plans include "Boundless Data", which just means that MyRepublic will never charge excess data charges. However, while users who exceed their official monthly data limit will still be able to connect to the Internet, speeds will be throttled to between 384Kbps to 1.2Mbps. MyRepublic says these speeds are enough to browse the internet or send Whatsapp messages, but not enough to stream videos in HD. 

Customers who wish to purchase more data can do so via either one time only 'Data Boosters' or monthly recurring 'Data Add-ons':-

  • Data Boosters are priced at S$3.50 for 500MB, S$7 for 1.5GB, or $12 for 3GB
  • Data Add-ons are priced at S$5 for 1GB, $12 for 3GB, or $30 for 8GB.

All three plans also include free caller ID, free incoming calls and SMSes, free SIM activation and delivery, and 1,000 minutes of local talktime and 1,000 SMSes.

Customers will be able to amend their plan at any time without any charges through the MyRepublic mobile app.

MyRepublic also announced its Roaming Data Boosters that will let you use data overseas:

Take note that the Xtra 85 plan actually comes with 2GB worth of Essential Roaming Data Booster valued at $18.

MyRepublic also announced that it plans to launch more mobile plans in the coming months, and will soon start selling devices along with its plans.
