The All-In-One PLDT TelPad | Upgrade Your Landline Now!

We have been a PLDT landline user for years now and after reading and exploring online about the convenience, benefits and advantages of upgrading to the PLDT Telpad, I am now determined to not only upgrade but to share my 1 of 1,001 reasons to upgrade from a landline to a PLDT Telpad

Primarily, I see the PLDT Telpad as an all-in-one deal. Managing multiple bills especially for internet connection and landline connection, I believe it is a major convenience to have bills consolidated into one. Usually, a household that has a landline subscrpition pays PHP 600++ or a little bit more in one month. If they are subscribed to myDSL they would either pay PHP 990 or P1299 a month for internet connection speeds of up to 384 kbps and up to 1 mbps. Or a household may be subscribed to an account with just purely internet connection at home and that would cost about PHP 999. 

Landline - PHP 600-800
Broadband connection - PHP 999
myDSL - PHP 990 or PHP 1299 (for slow internet connection)

Whatever combo a household has, it would cost them around PHP 1,600-1,800 or almost PHP 2,000 per month. But with the PLDT Telpad, for fast internet connection speed (up to 1.5mbps) a household will only have to pay PHP 1,849 per month. And that comes with an Android tablet or the PLDT Telpad for a one time cost of PHP 2,000 which can also be paid in 6-month installments. This is still cheaper than subscribing to a landline, broadband connection and buying an Android tablet. With PLDT Telpad, you get all-in-one!

Not only is it convenient economically but it is also helpful in managing the bills as well. Usually for telecommunication bills, we check the calls that add on to the standard monthly billed amount. And we have to wait for the bill to arrive before we are able to check the details. But with a Telpad's unique feature which a regular landline does not have, particularly the call history, we can check and see past calls made that are out of the regular or ordinary

And since you would have the internet connection and landline use together, the best way to pay is online which can save you the hassle of traveling and waiting in line in the bank or the payment center.

In addition to that, other members of the family can also enjoy web browsing and multimedia access using the PLDT Telpad which runs on the popular Android OS which gives the whole family access to thousands of free and paid game and educational Android apps. It will not only entertain but educate the whole family - that's truly all-in-one and it's PLDT Telpad. 

The PLDT Telpad's benefits and features are so exciting that they've inspired me to rewrite some lyrics of the song "Kaka" by a 90's band, Yano. I used the Garage Band app to recreated the music. I recorded everything - the guitar, bass guitar, drums, lead vocals, and back up vocals and did it in one night that I slept around 4am to finish it. Click play below and listen to the song or maybe sing along with me! LSS effect guaranteed!

(To the tune of Kaka by Yano) 

Verse 1: 
Sa bahay nila Samuel, landlady'y nahihirapan 
Nagpupumilit magkapera para sa babayaran 
Sa kasamaang palad, mga bills nagkasabay 
Kuryente, at landline dues nanjan na naku patay, eh... 

Verse 2: 
Sumibad siya pakusina kukunin ang landline bill 
Titingnan ang mga tawag ng border na si Samuel 
Pero sorry na lang at ang bill nawawala 
Sana'y may call history para masingil sila 

Kung ikaw ay landline user, upgrade to a TELPAD, 'kaw ay winner 
Wala, wala, sayo'y walang mawawala 

Verse 3: 
Palabas s'ya ng bahay punta sa bayad center 
Kahaba haba nga ng pila parang isang disaster 
Ngunit ang di niya alam pdeng mag bayad online 
Iwas trapik, pila, hassle payment ay laging on time. 

Kung ikaw ay landline user, upgrade to a TELPAD, 'kaw ay winner 
Wala, wala, sayo'y walang mawawala 

Verse 4: 
Paguwi niya ng bahay ‘la pang handang pagkain 
Bunso niya'y nag online research gabi na'y wala pa din 
Kung PLDT TELPAD sana ang gamit panalo na 
May internet, calls at Android tablet na, saan ka pa?! 

Kung ikaw ay landline user, upgrade to a TELPAD, 'kaw ay winner 
Wala, wala, sayo'y walang mawawala

i'm thinking of switching from my old provider to this new pldt internet promo but i'm afraid that it may have the same service, so i'm still thinking but i like the idea of having a telpad too.

Jeff said...

@melandria, I have the exact same thoughts. Hesitating because the service might be the same but the tablet is a good come on
