Our family cannot live without WIFI at home. My small write-from-home work as well as my social media requirements find me online from the time I wake up to the time I sleep. Add to that 4 internet-savvy kids who also MUST be online due to school work and of course, gaming. It is so important to us that the moment the internet lags or goes down, the whole house is in an uproar.
But seriously, that's how important it is for me to be connected ALL THE TIME.
So I am quite picky and choosy when it comes to selecting an internet service provider (ISP). Well, to be realistic, there is no perfect ISP. But at the very least, the ISP must have fairly good service coverage, minimum downtime, and acceptable, consistent internet speed based on one's subscribed plan.
I’ve learned of another option for people looking for a fixed wireless connection at home - myBRO.
The power of PLDT and Smart combined can now be seen in their HOME megabrand. The Fixed Broadband variants previously known as Bro Canopy and Wimax have now been merged and will be known as myBRO Wireless Home. It features a reliable internet connection at 512 kbps using the nationwide cellular network of Smart in order to bring wireless internet service right into your home and into your PC or laptop.
The first thing that caught my eye about myBRO was its AFFORDABILITY.
What can one buy for P26 these days? I cannot think of a decent meal or snack that goes for P26 or under. But for P26 a day, you can already get unlimited internet connection with myBRO's Plan 799 (with speeds up to 512 kbps). Your family can now be connected to the internet 24/7.
This is just right for families on tight budgets with children who are schooling and need internet connection. It's great for yuppies who are just starting out their careers and need to tighten their belts. Even for those with existing internet subscriptions, myBRO's Plan 799 can be a great secondary option as it is so reasonably priced.
Up to July 15, 2012, there is also a Back-to-School promo for myBRO's Plan 999 (with speeds up to 1 Mbps). You get 50% off your initial cashout as well as on your first monthly fee. Huge savings for families watching expenses. Check out the mechanics for availing of this promo HERE.
myBRO utilizes Smart's cellular network service nationwide. I can personally attest to how RELIABLE Smart's service is. On one summer some years back, on a ship in the middle of the seas between the Visayas and Manila, I had a Smart signal!
Here's one more thing you might like. It does not take long to install myBRO in your home. 48 hours after you pay for your subscription, your internet connection is up and running. That is FAST!
I know that many parents who do not have internet at home have to tolerate their kids' going to internet cafes to do schoolwork. Not only is it expensive in the long run but if they have to work late, it can also be a risk to their safety. That's why I like to spread around the word about reasonable internet plans like myBRO. It is now that much easier and affordable for all of your family members to be connected to the web from the safety of your home.
You can get more information about myBRO by dialing *1888 from your Smart phone. To apply for myBRO, just go to any Smart Store or PLDT Business Office nationwide or any accredited Smart or PLDT sales agents. You'll need to bring along with you proof of identification as well as proof of billing address. You can also subscribe by logging on to www.mybro.com.ph/apply-now.html.
