The PLDT Cyberya is an enclosed PC that is usually placed in stores where customers can use to connect to the internet for a peso per minute. It’s a viable source of income for minigosyantes located in areas where households don’t have access to internet.
PLDT just announced an updated Cyberya which now comes in two options: a gaming unit and a surfing unit, and both are bundled with PLDT Home’s wired broadband capable of internet speeds of up to 2 Mbps.
The gaming unit comes with a more powerful Intel Processor and 1GB graphics card, a bigger 4GB memory, and a larger 18.5-inch screen. It won’t probably play those A-list titles but it should be sufficient for the usual DOTA, LoL, or other MMO games right now.
The new wired broadband version of the Cyberya package is priced at P1,300 per month. Initial investment for interested minigosyantes includes payment for the chosen unit (P18,599 for the surfing unit, P23,799 for the gaming unit) and initial fees for modem and installation.
Cyberya operators can now also benefit from PLDT KaAsenso’s “œcompelling extended 24-month warranty and preferential after-sales support such as hotline and carry-in repair service that will make it sustainable for entrepreneurs.”
If you’re wondering about the viability of this as a small business, here’s what Cecille Medico, a Cyberya subscriber, has to say:
“œEstimate ko after eight months ko pa mababawi yung pinuhunan ko sa Cyberya. Pero five months pa lang, halos bawi na ako. The income was more than I expected. Ngayon, balak kong mag-umpisa ng food business gamit ang kinikita ko sa Cyberya.” (I estimated it would take more than eight months to get back the amount I invested in my Cyberya units but after only five months, I’m near to earning back my investment. The income was more than I expected. I’m now planning to start a food business using my earnings from Cyberya.)
