Do My Republic only do 24 month minimum contracts? I have been looking around at different ISPs offerings, and it looks like they are the only ones who don't seem to have a 12 month or less option.

Gotta ask why are you even looking considering you've seen all the stories? They do have no contract plans (https://myrepublic.net/nz/pricing/#nocontract)

If you click on Renter or Student they both go to the same no contract page. Couldn't spot any prove you're a Student / Renter stuff, but didn't look very hard.

 

Edit: Dayum, beaten by 1 minute, allowing for rounding errors of course...

Just really comparing pricing options. But have found I can get a far better deal now , as my current ISP has offered me a good deal.

They have clearly cleaned up the issues from a Year ago, I have not seen anyone saying there is any issues for quite a long time. Its fair to say a good percentage of the service providers would have had issues and fixed them, at some point people should let it go rather than continuing to vilify them.

They're still not members of the TDR service.

Genuine / serious question: Are they the only ones who are not a member, and would you automatically exclude those who aren't ? I don't see Voyager on their list, unless they are there under the name of a parent company or something like that.

 

Don't know much about the TDR service hence the (hopefully polite) question.

I'm not sure if they're the only ones but, yes, I automatically exclude anyone that isn't obviously a member from my own list of potential providers, and would advise that others do the same. The same goes for insurers that aren't members of the IFSO scheme (not that I personally waste money on insurance).
