Internet service provider MyRepublic is entering the mobile market to become Vodafone NZ’s second mobile virtual network operator (MVNO).
A Singapore-based internet service provider has said it will disrupt the competition by offering “truly unlimited” mobile data on speed-based plans for the first time.
The company said the new mobile service would help address customers’ concerns about data usage by giving them the freedom to choose how and when they used the internet on their phones and the speed they wanted without a data cap.
Starting in August, MyRepublic will offer three plans that differ in speed, measured in megabits per second (Mbit/s). Plans start at $60 per month with an introductory $20 discount for the first three months. All three plans include unlimited talk and text to New Zealand and Australia.
Matt Lindsay, MyRepublic country manager, said data is essential in everyday life.
“For too long, Kiwis have been faced with unnecessarily complicated mobile plans and prices,” he said. “The future of mobile is clear: customers shouldn’t have to worry about how much data they use.”
“Instead, they should only think about how they use their mobile device and pay for a service that meets their needs.”
MyRepublic, which launched broadband services in New Zealand in 2014, said that in the year to 2021 earned 25.9 million at the end of June. USD 22.5 million compared to USD in 2020 She earned 1.6 million. foreign exchange gain compared to 2.5 million USD loss in 2020

“We are proud to be MyRepublic’s chosen partner, complementing their offering with our world-class MVNO solution and enabling a closer connection, an even greater Aotearoa for years to come,” said Tony Baird, Director of Wholesale and Infrastructure, Vodafone NZ.
MyRepublic President Yap Yong Teck said the launch complemented the company’s business strategy to bring next-generation technology to the Asia Pacific markets.
“Our new service will be the backbone of our business as we grow and invest in MyRepublic’s business in New Zealand.”
