There is always that one person at home who tend to hog the internet. He/she is called a 'power user,' a person who heavily consumes the internet bandwidth at home and blocks other members of the household from enjoying the same fast internet for their online activities. 

Some power users unknowingly affect the internet experience at home because their activities may seem common to many. For example, they connect to the internet for video streaming, video calls, or downloading heavy files, but what they do not realize is the load of bandwidth they tend to consume. 

Understanding the needs of its customers, PLDT Home has come up with a new solution for these 'power users'—a dedicated secondary internet at home.

The PLDT Home MyOwnWiFi is an add-on service that allows existing Fiber customers to have a secondary internet connection with the same speed as that of their Fiber base plan.

It allows solo heavy bandwidth users to get the maximum speed of their modem without worrying about hogging the internet connection of their family at home. 

Moreover, MyOwnWiFi subscribers may enjoy their internet speed for half the price of their Fiber base plan.

"We give our customers tailor-fitted products to enable them to live extraordinarily better at home. MyOwnWiFi is one of our many innovations that answer the need of our customers for a dedicated, consistent, and fast connection so that they can excel at work, achieve more in school, and enjoy better digital experiences at home," says Evert Chris Miranda, PLDT Home Vice President and Head of Digital Services.

A Secondary, Dedicated Fiber Connection

Starting at P649, subscribers may experience fast speeds from 25 to 400 Mbps. New MyOwnWiFi subscribers will also be getting a WiFi Mesh device delivered for free, so they can connect more devices.

PLDT Home Fiber Plans come in two categories: Fiber Unli Plans and Fiber Plus Plans. While both plans give subscribers fast internet speeds optimized for connected homes, Fiber Plus Plan subscribers will receive the Mesh WiFi device which is ideal for big homes that need seamless whole-home WiFi coverage.

DIY and hassle-free connection

MyOwnWiFi does not require installation, making it convenient for subscribers. Upon successful subscription, subscribers can connect the MyOwnWiFi device to LAN Port 2 of their existing modem, and instantly get the additional same speed as their current subscription. It is as simple as plug-and-play to enjoy their MyOwnWiFi connection.

The add-on will also be charged on top of their current subscription bill, providing a seamless and hassle-free payment service as subscribers do not need to worry about multiple bills and separate billing cycles. 

MyOwnWiFi is the latest innovation from PLDT Home, one of the fastest internet service providers in the Philippines for five consecutive years, according to the global benchmarking company Ookla®, a leading global internet testing and analysis company that provides reliable, consistent speed test experience across devices.
