For a one-time payment of only P1,995, customers can buy this device at all PLDT Stores and retailers, SM branches nationwide, and authorized dealers. It already comes with free 10GB of data valid for seven days. Because it is prepaid, families do not have to worry about lock-in periods, monthly bills or bill shock from uncontrolled data usage.
The PLDT Home WiFi device is designed specifically for indoor use with its 700MHz frequency so families can enjoy seamless connection anywhere in the home. It can connect up to five devices including phones and laptops.
It is powered by SMART LTE, the country’s fastest LTE network, as recognized by global internet testing and analysis leader Ookla, UK-based mobile analytics firm OpenSignal and Canadian crowd-sourced mobile data company Tutela.

High-speed internet for the whole family
PLDT-Smart SVP and Consumer Business Market Development Head Oscar A. Reyes, Jr. said, “Access to high-speed and reliable internet is a basic need in every Filipino home. But many homes still don’t have their own home internet mostly because there are no affordable solutions. PLDT Home WiFi answers the need of Filipinos for affordable and bigger data packages that will allow them to share their data with the whole family.”
He concludes, “With PLDT Home WiFi, we’re enabling Filipino families to enjoy the best-ever and most affordable family-sized data packages because they get to experience the convenience of having their own home internet that’s fast and reliable, have access to a wealth of educational information online, and be able to share all these with their whole family.
