PLDT Home launches MyOwnWifi

Dedicated WiFi for those who need exclusive bandwidth

Published

on

Sharing your internet with the rest of people in the same place can sometimes take a toll in the connection’s bandwidth especially if one needs to consume a high bandwidth, like for watching HD videos.

To solve this, PLDT Home has launched MyOwnWifi. It lets solo heavy bandwidth users to get the maximum speed of their modem without affecting others’ connection.

To do this, there will be a secondary Fiber connection and a Wifi Mesh device delivered for free so they can connect more devices.

To get the second line, just pay 50 percent of the original plan of the first line:

  • Fiber Plan 1299 (25Mbps)
  • Fiber Plan 1699 (100Mbps)
  • Fiber Plan 2099 (200Mbps)
  • Fiber Plan 2699 (400Mbps)

Just to recall, PLDT Home Fiber Plans come in two categories: Fiber Unli Plans and Fiber Plus Plans, which are inclusive of Mesh Wifi devices.

Plug, play, enjoy

The best part of MyOwnWifi is that there’s no installation required. Upon successful subscription, subscribers can connect the MyOwnWifi device to LAN Port 2 of their existing modem, and instantly get the additional same speeds as their current subscription.

The add-on will also be charged on top of their current subscription bill for a seamless and hassle-free experience.

How Filipinos Google-searched this 2022

What were the top searches this year?

Published

on

The year 2022 has been nothing short of events that rocked the internet — from politics to sports, from pop culture to celebrities, and more. Google recently released its Year in Search 2022 which compiled the list of top items Filipinos searched for in the calendar year, and familiar search terms have emerged on top.

This year in Trending Searches, Filipinos keyed in “Halalan 2022”, “VaxCertPh”, and “precinct finder” the most, in that order.

Hit game Wordle came in at no. 4, while another, Axie Infinity, ranked no. 9. Shows like All of Us Are Dead, Encanto, and the keywords “Jeffrey Dahmer” also made the Top 10 list at no. 5, no. 8, and no. 10, respectively.

Rounding out the list is “Warriors vs Celtics” at no. 6, which of course was the 2022 NBA Finals series won by Golden State, and “Ukraine” at no. 7 due to the country’s on-going conflict against Russia.
