Luis Manzano Shares Why the Internet is So Important Nowadays

Luis Manzano isn't a new name in the showbiz realm. Through the years, he has managed to carve a name for himself and establish a career as a top-rating TV game show host and versatile actor. Recently, he was also launched as a brand ambassador for PLDT Home WiFi, a home Internet device that can be loaded with family-sized prepaid data packs.

This role as an ambassador reflects Luis' own digitally active lifestyle. He explains: "I'm online most time of the day. I take care of a lot of things and being online helps me on my daily tasks."

He adds, "I always have to be online. Sometimes, we think we're too addicted to the Internet or it takes us away from the real meaning of life. It's part and parcel of how we live now. It's how we balance everything. For me, nothing beats a really good, stable, and fast connection."

In his spare time, Luis likes playing his favorite games or geeking out online. "I'm always reading about nutrition, diving, fitness, a bit of general knowledge, anything trivial. I'm a proud nerd," he quips.

Being able to share Internet connectivity is also crucial to nurturing relationships in this digital age. He adds: "It's as simple as when you step out, when you converse, when you talk to your family and you go, 'Oh, have you seen this?" or "Oh, I've watched that, too!' It's sharing the impact of the actual 'connection'."

As an advocate of life-long learning, Luis also sees the value of home Internet in empowering school-age children. In this age of digitally savvy kids where everyone has access to online information, it is crucial to keep up and gain a competitive edge in order to stand out.

"Imagine: now you can have online research and group meetings for projects. And if you need extra help for a lesson, you can search online for video tutorials," Luis points out. "And when you're reviewing for an exam, you can do practice tests online. It's easier now for both parents and kids to excel and achieve their goals because of easy access to information."

He advises everyone to keep learning every chance they get. "I am happy that PLDT Home makes Internet more accessible to Filipino homes through their prepaid offering. Let's make the world a better place by encouraging more Filipinos to stay connected and be digitally informed," Luis concludes. "Let's all progress at the same time. The best way to get started is by having reliable Internet connection at home."

Although used as a retort back in the day, the phrase "Naks, daming alam!" has now become an expression for praise and admiration. Luis shares, "It's one of the biggest compliments. When someone tells me, 'Naks, daming alam', well, thank you very much! That's because I read and have access to reliable Internet connection to research and learn more about the world."

You and your family can now enjoy the perks of easy access to high-speed and reliable Internet from PLDT Home Wi-Fi powered by the country's fastest LTE from Smart.
