Nicholas Demos has left the building. After five years managing the affairs of MyRepublic in Australia and New Zealand, he has taken his leave, but certainly not on a gloomy note.
MyRepublic chief Nicholas Demos has stepped down from his post, with the long-serving head of the small ISP that operates in Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and Singapore to finish up this week.
Small ISP MyRepublic has announced a new push to sell 100Mbps plans, with a discounted plan of $79.95, a drop of $10 from existing prices, for an unspecified limited period.
Telstra residential and small business customers were the most vociferous complainants about phone and Internet issues in the last financial year, generating 82.528 complaints, a year-on-year increase of 7.7%, according to figures from the TIO released on Wednesday.
The CVC costs set by the NBN Co make it very difficult for ISPs to offer gigabit connections to more than a select band of customers who are willing to sign up in numbers and pay slightly more than other speed tiers, according to one ISP who caters to this type of consumer.
The prediction made by the chief of Launceston-based ISP Launtel that smaller retail service providers selling NBN plans would be in difficulty after October appears to be coming true, with one small provider, MyRepublic, announcing that it would raise its prices from 27 October.
Regular commentators on the national broadband network have mixed opinions about the departure of NBN Co chief executive Bill Morrow, with some not absolving him of the condition of the project and others saying he could do no better under the circumstances.
The delay announced by NBN Co in allowing consumers to connect to the national broadband network from the HFC network is likely to hit small and new entrants into the field of retail service providers.
The managing director of the small ISP MyRepublic claims the average revenue per user earned by the NBN Co will continue to be low because bigger telcos like Telstra, Optus, TPG and Vocus push slow-speed connections to their customers in order to avoid popularising the NBN.
One word that cannot be used to describe Nicholas Demos is bashful. The head of the small ISP MyRepublic has made a splash after his arrival in Australia last November, with media tactics that tend to remind one of those employed by Ruslan Kogan, the head of online retailer Kogan.com.
The head of MyRepublic in Australia and New Zealand has challenged the NBN Co chief executive Bill Morrow to give Australia an NBN pricing model that is fit for purpose.
Internet service providers have taken exception to comments by NBN Co chief executive Bill Morrow in which he blamed them for customer complaints over speeds experienced on NBN connections.
Internet service provider MyRepublic says newly commissioned research has found that three in four (76%) Australians want speeds of 1Gbps or more, with two in three people (66% ) claiming it would have a positive effect on their work and leisure time.
