DITO Telecommunity, a third telco, plans to launch broadband internet services in early 2022, according to a representative of its parent company, DITO CME Holdings Corp (DCME). The company launched commercial operations in March of this year.
DCME chief financial officer Joseph John Ong told ABS-CBN News that the company began with mobile prepaid services but that after its network is completed, it will become a “full-service telco.”
DITO intends to be a full-service telecom, which implies that we will supply all of the services that you currently receive from the current players, primarily Globe and Smart “According to Ong.
During the pandemic, internet usage, including mobile data and broadband, increased dramatically.
DITO passed its second technical audit in September. With average broadband speeds of 89.1 Mbps for 4G and 854 Mbps for 5G, it has touched 52.75 percent of the country’s population.
The telecom, which enlisted China Telecom’s help, recently passed its second-year audit, a requirement that incumbents Globe Telecom and PLDT Inc. did not face.
Newest telco player DITO Telecommunity and local gaming and e-sports company Lupon WXC continue their partnership for this year’s JUST ML Christmas Cup from December 4 – 30, 2021.
