DITO Telecommunity digital communication is now rolling in some areas of Visayas and Mindanao. Metro Manila is next on the line and it’s coming in a few weeks.
That official statement came from a company official as reported in ABS-CBN News.
None other than the DITO’s Chairman and CEO Dennis Uy led the virtual event and some of its guests are from National Telecommunication Commission and from the Department of Information, Communication, and Technology. NTC Commissioner Gamaliel Cordoba, DICT Secretary Gregorio Honasan, and other LGU officials from Davao joined the said event.
“To the rest of the country, as a partner in nation building, we send a message to the people of the Philippines wherever they may be that DITO is more than just a telco. We are here to serve in this manner. We want the country to know na DITO na kami, DITO na tayo and magkita-kita tayo very soon,” DITO Chairman and CEO Dennis Uy said.
With DITO added as one of the nation’s telco player many have expected that will help the internet connectivity speed of the Philippines to the next level. A speed which many of our neighboring countries in Southeast Asia currently enjoy.
DITO’s entry “represents a big boost in digital connectivity services” for Filipinos, Honasan said.
“Now, after overcoming hurdles and passing the technical audit of your first year of roll-out, we hope that this commercial rollout would bring about welcome dynamism to the current Philippine telecom industry,” he added.
Below are the areas in Vis-Min where DITO services can be accessed:
– Cebu City
– San Fernando
– Davao City
Apart from the promised high-speed internet connection, many also hope that the prices will be more affordable as a result of competition.
“We’re glad they’re doing it now because the real competition has entered the market,” Tamano said.
