Any news here? I was expecting at least a media release, but it seems really quiet today.

24 days for me too, only available ISPs on chorus are My republic (eww, no) orcon (also no thanks) and bryte who dont even list it on their site, i have never heard of and dont have pricing either so I assume is a mistake.

 

Come on @VygrNetworkMonkey !!!

Can't say I'm that desperate, but it says 34 days for us.

 

Also, it says 2000 and 4000 are available but the graphic below that dial thing only shows 2000/2000. Any idea which wins ?

That's the trading name for Mediatribe, I can't speak for the support/pricing etc but I know the network they use is certainly capable and ready for Hyperfibre.

Hi all

 

 

 

I got really excited when hyperfibre became availabe in my area last week (East Auckland) and decided to sign up with MyRepublic. Due to my lack of research, it seems that MyRepublic has a really bad reputation.

 

 

 

Should I try to cancel my sign up with them and wait around (currently with Spark)? The only other ISP that is offering hyperfiber in my area is Orcon.

 

 

 

Cheers

Orcon would be a better provider, although spark is your best bet if you are happy to pay through the roof

this does stack up favourably, cost-wise.

Unfortunately, spark doesn't offer hyperfiber service yet?

 

 

 

I guess I will give MyRepublic a try. If it is horrendous then I will switch
