DITO expands network reach to 100 cities/municipalities and 29m Filipinos

3 Jun 2021

New third telco DITO Telecommunity has revealed that its in-deployment mobile network now extends to 100 cities and municipalities, covering some 29 million Filipinos, with services available in more than 3,000 retail outlets nationwide. The new third player launched commercially on 8 March 2021 but has since pushed ahead with its rollout. Business World cites DITO chairman and CEO, Dennis A Uy, as saying that having kicked off services in just 15 cities/municipalities at launch, it added 21 new areas in mid-April, followed by another 18 two weeks later, ‘reaching as far north as Nueva Ecija in Central Luzon for a total of 54 cities’. Now that total has been nearly doubled again with DITO offering users 25GB of mobile data with unlimited cross-net SMS, unlimited on-net calls and 300 minutes of off-net calls for just PHP199 (USD4.17) per month.
