So I've decided to switch to MyRepublic due to their PS4 promo and since I have now turned into a gamer. I'm just sick of all the lag I get on my BigPipe Gigabit connection and it looks like over the last couple of months MyRepublic have really improved their network and have got great gamers support which is essential for me. I've been really thinking about this change since I posted in the BigPipe IPv6 thread about moving to MyRepublic if they didn't deliver.

 

It appears the new router will be better than my current Edgerouter Lite. Does anyone have any experience with their router? Just thinking it'll help with my gaming. It looks like they've designed a router with really fast WiFi so should work well with Gigabit.

Hey, do you have 5 to 10 devices? I hear that MyRepublic is the only ISP that can give you a wifi router that features superior wifi experience that's perfect for standard homes.

Ohhh! And it supports printer sharing too. I like the idea of making my printer faster too.

I did a speedtest on my friends vdsl over his wireless and got better speeds. Like, my speeds are performing horribly right now. My friend said I needed something called a master filter but I couldn't find how to install it on my UFB. Currently my speeds are soooo slow! I tried downloading counterstrike over it and it was doing less than dialup!!!

 

Like here is my speedtest...

 

 

Does anyone know if my new MyRepublic modem will make it faster?

that kind of speed is so unacceptable in 2017, bigpipe should be ashamed of themselves

I wish that @JoshBigpipe would fix my connection. I asked @IPv6Pipe if IPv6 would fix it but they said noooo and refused to give it to me.

Is that for testing whether dialup works over their VoIP network?
