Unlike other PLDT Home products, this one’s a little special as it doesn’t ride PLDT’s DSL or fiber internet connection. Instead, the device uses Smart’s infrastructure to ride on its superior LTE connection. Recently, Smart LTE was certified by Ookla as the country’s fastest mobile network.

If you haven’t gotten your PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi, you can check out units available at PLDT Stores and retailers nationwide. Each product you get comes with free 10GB data for a one-time payment of PhP1,995.

For those who already got a device with them, here are 5 tips to make sure you get the best experience:

  • Remove that red indicator by moving your device near the window. As this device uses, LTE, think of it like how your smartphone uses the mobile internet connection of Smart. Also, keep it away from household items and fixture that can cause interference like metal objects, appliances like microwave oven, LED lights and concrete walls and dividers.
  • It’s best to use it indoors! The device is optimized for home or indoor usage. It uses LTE 700MHz band, a frequency that easily penetrates houses and buildings.
  • Change the default password. Internet leechers are everywhere. We highly suggest that you change the default password of your home prepaid wifi as soon as you received it.
  • Set a budget for top-ups. There will be weeks when you’ll need more data allocation. Be sure to set a monthly budget for possible top-ups that you may do within a month. Be sure to check our guide when you do your budgeting.
  • Home Boost 15 add-on is your best friend! 1GB for 1 day for only PhP15 is your “pinakasulit” add-on. You can subscribe to any prepaid plan you want, and just in case you’d need more, it only takes PhP15 to add 1GB more data allocation. For better value of money, provided that you’re not consuming too much data, we recommend subscribing to Home Boost PhP599 that gives you 15GB for 30 days. Should you need more data allocation in the future, you can just simply subscribe to Home Boost 15 accordingly.

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

The Gadget Pilipinas Team was given access to a press briefing with Hidetaka Miyazaki, Director from From Software and a bit of hands-on gameplay. Here’s our take on the hands-on gameplay and the insights from the press interview. We also  figured a listicle is in order to rundown why this game will match the hype surrounding it.

Here’s our Top 5 reasons why “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice” is to die for.

1) The game is Tenchu-inspired

sk8lqukaqalhq2mrzkqd 770x433 - Top 5 reasons "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice" is to die forIf you’ve played any of the Tenchu games in previous game consoles, you know that the use of the grappling hook to set-up a one-slash-stealth kills from above is a hallmark of the series. Zipping to rooftops and treetops will be the go-to move in this game to get rid of sentries. And yes, those ever-so glorious decapitations and dismemberments with the stealth kill are present.

2) Casual or hardcore can play

sn1rmqcvrwomyuttaoyq 770x433 - Top 5 reasons "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice" is to die forFrom Software is notorious for challenging games and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is no exception. However, Hidetaka Miyazaki, Director of From Software, revealed that he himself is a casual gamer and has made it clear that the game should be accessible to beginners and experienced players alike.

3) Upgradeable prosthetic arm

No details were revealed but its good to know that a skill-tree based system is in place. Think Horizon Zero Dawn or Spiderman on the way skill and gadgets are upgraded. Tech upgrades set in feudal Japan? What’s not to like?

4) Play the style that suits you

What’s clear is that you can’t use stealth for the whole campaign since the game wasn’t designed that way. Stealth can be used to thin enemy numbers and to preserve your health before confronting the big boss. The mix of stealth and hack and slash is always a good mix to change-up the pace and should suit any gameplay style.

5) Single-player only campaign can last 20 to 30 hours 

ocxemodvr6oa72argpyo 770x433 - Top 5 reasons "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice" is to die forThat’s the length of the campaign as per Miyazaki. The game is focused-solely on the single-player experience. No more wayward players who can just jump-in and help or derail your campaign. From Software also focused on the story-telling. Given that no resources were spent in developing the multiplayer aspect, expect the campaign to take it up a notch.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be released on March 22, 2019 on PC, Xbox One and the Playstation 4.
