Holiday Gift Idea 6: Get blazing fast broadband speed anywhere in the house

Holiday Gift Idea 6: Get blazing fast broadband speed anywhere in the house

MyRepublic's 1Gbps fibre broadband bundles

The Yuletide season is a time of feasting, holiday travels and of course…gaming! If you’ve made plans to do your merry making over League of Legends or Fortnite matches, then consider if you’ve been happy with your broadband speed and stability to date. Otherwise, you still have time to make the switch to MyRepublic. Equally important is having the right networking gear to maximize your plan and they've got it pat down with two recent fibre plan bundles for your consideration.

First up is the broadband provider’s 1Gbps Fibre Broadband with Google Nest Wifi at S$56.99 per month. As the name implies, the Google bundle comes with the Nest Wifi Router and Point (worth S$428), and for a limited time, also comes with a complimentary Google Nest Mini valued at S$79. The Nest Wifi combination is a mesh networking system (learn more about it here) that also supports Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), ensuring that your home network coverage is not only fast but also consistently stable regardless of where you're accessing the internet within your home.

But if chicken dinners in gaming are what you’re after, then consider the GAMER 1Gbps at S$63.99 per month, which MyRepublic has also bundled with the excellent ASUS ROG GT-AX11000 Router.

The GAMER fibre plan comes with custom routing for that all-important ultra-low, ultra-stable latency – giving you that unfair advantage in your online matches. This is possible because all data traffic for GAMER runs on a dedicated IP address range, allowing their engineers to prioritise GAMER data and set up the best custom routes to overseas game servers. Not surprisingly, this has also allowed MyRepublic to boast the fastest Steam download speeds in Singapore.
