HOME Prepaid WiFi, the first prepaid service of the country’s No.1 broadband, is here and it is allowing more Filipino families to finally get their own high-speed Internet connection and enjoy their favorite online activities in the comfort of their own home.
Powered by Smart, the country’s fastest mobile network as certified by global internet testing leader Ookla, the PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi is now available at PLDT Stores and retailers nationwide and comes with FREE 10GB data for a one-time payment of only P1,995.
Here are five tips to make sure you get the best experience with your PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi:
• Place it strategically. Place the PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi near a window to get the best signal. As much as possible, keep it away from household items and fixtures that can cause interference such as metal objects, appliances like microwave oven, LED lights and concrete walls and dividers. Even water and moisture—which can come from unexpected places like plant pots, flower vases, air-conditioners, or an open bathroom door—can weaken wireless signals.
• Use it indoors. Unlike the regular Pocket WiFi which you can carry on the go, PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi is specially designed for home use, and works best in a fixed and stationary location indoors. The device supports the LTE 700MHZ band, a low frequency that easily penetrates houses and buildings, so it is able to deliver high-speed connection inside the house—as opposed to the regular Pocket WiFi.
• Set a secure password. PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi connects up to 5 WiFi-enabled devices, including smartphones, tablets, or laptops. To avoid WiFi-hoggers that slow down your connection or, worse, use up your data, make sure you set a strong and secure password that only your family knows.
• Set a budget for top-ups. One of the best things about the PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi is lets you control your usage based on your family’s budget. For a much better experience, make sure you set a monthly, weekly or daily budget for regular top-ups, so you won’t go beyond your intended usage.
• Take advantage of Home Boost 15 add-on. With PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi, you can enjoy PLDT Home’s pinakasulit data offer of 1GB for 1 day for only P15 via Home Boost 15, which you can get as an add-on top promos like Home Boost 50. Depending on your family’s needs, take advantage of this add-on for greater savings.
