Amid complaints of dropped calls, poor signal: NTC urged to explain how Dennis Uy’s DITO passed second audit

Infrawatch convenor Terry Ridon said NTC should be transparent about the methodology it used for the second audit, as well as the results.

“Nothing in the audit hews closely to real-world results tested by actual users. We’d like to know which parallel universe these speed tests were taken,” Ridon said in a statement.

“This kind of defense essentially compromises the accuracy of the technical audit.”

The July audit should already ensure that Dito is available to 51% of the population and provide mobile internet speeds of at least 55 Mbps.

The audit revealed the telco owned by bilyonaryo Dennis Uy can already provide minimum average speeds of 89.13 megabits per second (mbps) for 4G and 853.96 mbps for 5G for 52.75% of Filipinos.

“NTC and Dito should clarify why the technical audit reported very reassuring results while third party reports show otherwise,” Ridon said.
