Home Prepaid Wifi
Customer Terms

By using the PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi Service (the “Service”) of PLDT Inc. (“PLDT” or “we”), you, as the “Customer” hereby agree to the following:

  1. The Service
    1.  The Service is a fixed wireless broadband service and is intended only for PLDT’s services and you cannot use it for or with the services of other service providers. It is designed to function properly if you have the following:
      1.  Home WiFi Prepaid modem (“Modem”);
      2.  Home WiFi Prepaid SIM powered by Smart Bro (“SIM”), which will have a corresponding Home WiFi Number (“Number”); and
      3.  FamLoad value loaded into the customer’s Home Prepaid WiFi account.
    2.  You may avail the Service for a one-time fee with FREE 10GB of internet, which is valid for seven (7) days.
    3.  The Modem, SIM, and FamLoads are neither refundable in nor redeemable for cash, whether in part or in full.
    4.  The SIM can only be used for the Modem it is bundled with. Please do not remove the SIM to avoid issues with your Modem and sim warranty, connection, and/or promo subscriptions.
    5.  PLDT may also lock the Modem for use only with the bundled SIM. The Modem may not be used if a different SIM is inserted.
    6.  We enabled the SIM to provide data service only. Thus, making or receiving calls and sending of text messages are disabled.
    7.  You shall receive service notifications from us (e.g., usage, loading, etc.) through incoming Short Message Service (“SMS”), which can be accessed through the Modem’s dashboard.
  2. Loading
    1.  You can purchase FamLoad value to continue using the Service through any of the following:
      1.  Direct loading via any PLDT and Smart loading station; or
      2.  Conversion of regular load to a FamLoad.
    2.  After loading the value into the SIM, it shall be valid for the specific period of time as may be determined by PLDT.
    3.  You can only use the Service using FamLoad. Regular load should be converted to FamLoad or valid promo loads to access the Internet.
  3. Usage Monitoring
    1.  You can monitor your internet usage through the Home Prepaid WiFi dashboard. You can access the dashboard by visiting www.pldthome.com/homewifiload while connected to your Home Wifi network.
    2.  Another way to monitor your usage is through the myPLDT Smart App, which can be downloaded via the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
  4. Disconnection
    1.  The Service shall be permanently disconnected if you are unable to reload value into your account one hundred eighty (180) days after fully consuming your prepaid balance.
    2.  PLDT does not allow reconnection if your Service was permanently disconnected. Please make sure to have enough regular load or FamLoad to prevent damages or losses arising from permanent disconnection of the Service.
    3.  Your Number associated with the disconnected Service cannot be reacquired. You need to avail of a new SIM bundled with the Modem to use the Service again.
    4.  Your assigned Number will be useable for as long as your Service is active and cannot be changed at any time.
  5. After-Sales
    1.  The Modem, SIM, and initial load are non-refundable and non-replaceable in case of loss, theft, or damage due to misuse, mishandling, negligence, or willful misconduct on your part.

    3.  The following shall apply to Modem parts found with inherent defects:
      1.  You may request for replacement within the seven (7) day replacement warranty period at any SSC.
      2.  If your Modem is found to be defective after the seven (7) day replacement warranty period, please go to any of the following for device repair:
