The Internet has opened up a new world for many people globally. Millions of people can now work, study, and socialize online thanks to digital technology and high-speed and reliable Internet like PLDT Home Fiber. It makes our lives easier, faster, and simpler in the digital age.

Are you a power user? Your demands have a brand new solution right here!

Many have also shifted into a highly digital lifestyle, and some even embraced the wonders of the smart home. Thus, there has been an increased need for more powerful WiFi connectivity to keep up with the demands of people’s work and passion.

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) reports that during the pandemic, Internet user ranks grew to 4.9 billion in 2021, from 4.1 billion in 2019– revealing strong global growth in Internet use. It is also the time when remote education and remote work skyrocketed.

It's essential to have access to a stronger and better connection given the Internet's growing significance as a tool for information and communication. Enter PLDT Home Fiber's MyOwnWiFi, which strengthens your Internet with two connections under one plan. What is it, and why is it best for power users like you? We'll tell you more!

What is PLDT Home Fiber MyOwnWiFi?

The new MyOwnWifi is PLDT Home Fiber’s add-on subscription that uniquely offers a secondary Internet connection without needing a separate PLDT Home Fiber account, a new landline, or even a new modem. So you won’t have to apply for another PLDT Home Fiber account, and there’s also no need for installation!

With MyOwnWifi, a more robust connection will be enjoyed by new and existing customers– giving them a choice to get a second dedicated connection at half the price.

A MyOwnWifi subscription comes with one puck of WiFi Mesh so you can conveniently connect more devices versus single device use. Just connect the WiFi Mesh to the LAN 2 of your modem, and you can start surfing using MyOwnWifi.

MyOwnWifi service is available to select PLDT Home Fiber customers on FTTH technology and subscribed to 25, 100, 200, and 400 Mbps plans. It offers a speed that is identical to your PLDT Home Fiber plan. Therefore, if you are on a Fiber plan with speeds of up to 400 Mbps (Plan 2699 or 2999), your MyOwnWifi secondary internet will also offer speeds of up to 400 Mbps.

For better coverage at home, it’s recommended to add more WiFi Mesh devices depending on the type and structure of the house. One mesh device can cover approximately 100 square meters subject to actual placement or one to two devices per floor so that we can extend the WiFi coverage throughout your home.

Why having your “own” WiFi is a great choice?

Having your own WiFi is ideal, especially if you are a busy, hard-working power user. It is perfect for power users whose usage may be heavier than others and therefore need a solitary Internet connection.

For instance, your PLDT Home Fiber Plan could continue to be shared by your entire family, while MyOwnWifi could be used exclusively by a family member who requires priority Internet for work, school, or play. Let's say you want a connection that is more powerful and consistent; this innovation offers a priority, solo connection to meet your needs.

It is also worth noting that having your own WiFi can be one of the best contributing factors to productivity since it helps you achieve everything on time.

Make your Internet stronger with two connections under one plan

In this digital age, you need a stronger and more reliable connection all the time if you want your day to go as planned. So we need a dependable Internet connection like the PLDT Home Fiber Plan to get by, and MyOwnWiFi would be ideal for amplifying that.

Perhaps the next upgrade you deserve is a second dedicated connection that you can enjoy all to yourself. Again, two connections are better than one– one for you and one for your family!
