How to Get Fast Business ROI with PLDT Cyberya

with 2 comments

PLDT KaAsenso Cyberya is a coined term from two words: “Cyber,” involving cyberspace and the Internet, and “Barya,” a Filipino word meaning “coins” in literal translation. In reality, it’s a coin-operated machine that allows people to drop as little as one Peso to surf the Internet.

The Cyberya business is touted to be a high-profit, low-maintenance small business or minigosyo, helping provide extra income for small business owners or jumpstarting a small business into a bigger venture with multiple Cyberya machines. In partnership with Intel Philippines, the global leader that develops technologies, products, and initiatives to continually advance how people work and live, PC Express, one of the leading computer retailing shops in the Philippines that provides high-quality PC and electronic parts and accessories, and PLDT KaAsenso, PLDT HOME’s trusted enabler for minigosyos. Cyberya was launched in late 2012, it is now available nationwide.

A Cyberya package is an all-in-one surfing or gaming console comprised of PLDT’s wired broadband connectivity up to 2Mbps (minimum speed of 150 kbps at 80% reliability) and a complete personal computer (PC) set that the minigosyo owner can pay through their PLDT Bill with extended 24-month warranty (depending on parts) and after-sales service.

The more Cyberya units you get, the faster your return on investment (ROI) is. Revenue is always dependent on a good location where people will want to use the Cyberya unit, like a place where there is high foot-traffic. Make sure the location is not beside any existing Cyberya units. Remember, the longer the operating hours of your Cyberya unit is, the more customers it can service.

Here’s an illustrative way of making money with Cyberya:


You can apply for the Cyberya Package in any accredited PLDT sales and service centers, or PLDT Home sales agents. You will need a valid ID (must be government-issued or company ID with SSS and TIN) and proof of business registration (Barangay Permit is allowed). Remember, this is a small business you are setting up and PLDT cannot allow you to purchase and lease a Cyberya package without proof of business registration. You will also need to fill-up a customer information sheet and a subscription certificate. For existing KaAsenso subscribers, all you need to present is your valid ID.

For more information, please visit the PLDT Home Cyberya website.

    • Thanks, Dan. I actually got to use it. They brought the machine at the Work At Home ‘Pinas, The Seminar last Saturday. I’m looking into setting up a few next year but have to plan it, though.
