Mayward shares hacks on how to use the free 10GB from PLDT Home Prepaid Wifi

Teen stars Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber—aka MayWard—are back with a new video for PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi’s Techie Hacks series.

This time, the phenomenal love team dishes out tips on how to make the most of your free 10GB data, which comes with the purchase of PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi for a one-time payment of only P1,995. The free one-off data allocation is valid for seven days.

With 10GB worth of data, you can stream that online series everyone’s been talking about, catch up on your favorite vloggers, video call your friends and family abroad, try a new mobile game, research for a school project, or just surf leisurely. The online possibilities are endless!

In the first half of new YouTube video, Maymay explains that checking your free 10GB data is as simple as connecting to PLDT Home Prepaid Wifi, going to and clicking on the ‘current balance’ link. This will lead to the dashboard, where you can monitor your data allocation and usage.

MayWard also tackles a common scenario among heavy internet users—they get too engrossed in what they are doing online that they lose track of time and data. To make sure they manage background data charging and enjoy seamless browsing, streaming or gaming, MayWard reminds fans and viewers of one important keyword: OFF.

Check your mobile settings and make sure that the following background data-consuming features and processes are turned off: auto-refresh, auto-play for videos on Instagram and Facebook and auto-update of apps. To minimize unnecessary data usage, you can also turn off Facebook post notifications and auto-download photos and videos on messaging apps. And whenever possible, watch videos in standard definition (SD) instead of high-definition (HD) for other bandwidth-heavy online activities so you can save your data.

Keep in mind: After you’ve used up your free 10GB, you can reload with Home Boost 50 or any other Home Boost amount. And while you’re still registered to any Home Boost promo, you can top up anytime with Home Boost 15 to get 1GB for one day at only P15—the most affordable internet offer yet from PLDT Home.

Powered by PH’s fastest LTE network

With the PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi, you can connect up to five devices anywhere in the home. And because it’s prepaid, you do not have to worry about lock-in periods, monthly bill payments or bill shock. Just load it when you need it, and don’t forget to follow MayWard’s tips for a hassle-free online experience.

The PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi is powered by Smart LTE, the country’s fastest mobile network, as affirmed by global internet testing leader Ookla®, mobile analytics expert OpenSignal and recently, Canadian crowdsourced mobile data company Tutela, which named Smart as the superior network when it comes to providing consistent quality connections.
