It is surprising that it doesn’t work with Pixel 6 and 7 series.
Something very puzzling is that it claims that MyRepublic supports both 5G SA and NSA network. If it supports 5G NSA network, why won’t it work with Samsung S20 series of smartphones?
Update : We checked with MyRepublic, their 5G plan will require a reissue of a new 5G SIM card and the plan runs on Starhub not M1.
“5G SA offers a 5G New Radio (NR) access network based on an end-to-end core 5G network, while 5G NSA offers 5G radio signals using an existing 4G LTE core. Both 5G SA and 5G NSA networks offer increased speeds, better response time, and superior reliability when compared to a 4G network – with 5G SA delivering best-in-class performance.
MyRepublic offers 5G service on both 5G SA and NSA networks.“
[Update 18/1/2023 : MyRepublic has removed the service offering indicating 5G NSA from it’s website. It only works on 5G SA]
[Update 18/1/2023 : MyRepublic updated the supported list of devices]
