So, has anyone signed up for and maybe even using MyRepublic yet? If so, are you on the "gamer" plan? I'm really interested to see if anyone is getting a large difference in latency to Aussie/US or anywhere else. I'd love to see some traceroutes to see what path's its taking.

We don't have Fiber yet at our place (they have fiber across the road of course) or i'd love to give them a test run, especially considering it's 3 months free.

I got a call from them yesterday morning after registering my interest months ago. I signed up for the 'Gamer' plan on the 3 month trial that day.
I'm currently on unlimited VDSL with Snap waiting for UFB services from them for almost 2 years, So when I got the call along with the trial it was perfect.

Cant wait.

Yeah I am cautiously optimistic about the magical gamer routing they claim on that plan. If there was some way of by passing most of AT&T hops for WoW they might get some impressive results.
