Living in a digital world needs a lot of internet. We have all tried several methods of getting free internet. But a couple has surpassed all of these methods and named their newborn daughter 'Twifia' to get free WiFi for 18 years.

The father of the newborn came across an ad by a Swiss start-up company called 'Twifi,' which offered free WiFi for 18 years if the parents name their newborn child after their company. If one has a son, they have to name him Twifus, and if one has a daughter, parents have to name her Twifia.

The advertisement read "Simply upload a photo of your child's civil birth certificate. After verification, Twifi will give you 18 years of free internet."

The new parents gave their daughter's second middle name Twifia. They wished to stay anonymous. They said that they would save up the money that they would have spent on the internet for their daughter, which she could use it in the future to buy a car or learn to drive.

Although the child's mother was initially hesitant about the idea, now she says "the more often we say Twifia, the heartier the name sounds."

The founder and CEO of Twifi, Philippe Fotsch said that they would pay for the couple's WiFi even if the company face problems as it is a "matter of honour."
