Dennis Uy flexes DITO’s over 10M subscribers

Third telco player DITO Telecommunity has gained more than 10 million subscribers after nearly a year and a half since its commercial launch.

DITO chief administrative officer Adel Tamano announced that the country’s new mobile network operator’s subscriber base had already reached 10.3 million this month.

This puts DITO on track to hit 12 million subscribers by the end of the year, Tamano said.

DITO had its one-millionth subscriber at the end of June last year, just three months after its commercial launch on March 8, 2021.

The telco is confident it will successfully hurdle its third technical audit which commenced on July 8.

For its third technical audit, DITO should achieve 70 percent population coverage and a minimum average speed of 55 Mbps.
