PLDT recently launched the new prepaid Home WiFi, along with FamLoad — the family-sized and affordable prepaid broadband Wi-Fi data packages.
The PLDT Home WiFi is powered by Smart LTE with a price of PHP 1,995. It is designed for indoor use and can access the 700MHz frequencies. Customers can buy the device at PLDT Stores and retailers, SM branches nationwide, and authorized dealers. It comes with 10GB data valid for seven days.
FamLoad, on the other hand, are prepaid data packages you can use with the Home WiFi. It allows you to enjoy the flexibility and convenience to load only the data you actually need, when you need it. Data packs are available for daily, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly reloading.
The FamLoad data packages are:
- FAMLOAD 15 – PHP 15, 1GB valid for 1 day
- FAMLOAD 50 – PHP P50, 3GB valid for 3 days
- FAMLOAD 199 – PHP199, 12GB valid for 7 days
- FAMLOAD 599 – PHP 599, 40GB valid for 15 days
- FAMLOAD 999 – PHP 999 – 65GB valid for 30 days
- FAMLOAD 1499 – PHP 1499, 100GB valid for 30 day
FamLoad data packages can be purchased in authorized PLDT and Smart retailers, sari-sari stores, telco stalls, and 7-Eleven branches nationwide.
As you can see on the list, FamLoad packages offer a ton of value. Best value in my opinion is FAMLOAD 50. You get 3GB open access data for 3 days. That’s roughly PHP 100 to PHP 150 a week for 6GB to 9GB of data. For a whole month, that’s around PHP 500 a month for 30GB data. Not bad.
