“DITO truly is humbled with the reception we have received from the Filipino people and as our way of expressing our gratitude, we will be giving a special gift to all 1M subscribers through the DITO app when we hit this milestone soon.”
Retired Major General Rodolfo Santiago, Chief Technology Officer disclosed that to commemorate the 123 years of Philippine independence, the new network is now available in 123 areas in time for June 12, 2021 and targeting to be present in 146 areas by end June.

In the issue of connectivity in currently covered areas, the Chief Technology Officer said, “We ask our subscribers to please not expect 100% coverage yet. There are of course isolated areas in the covered cities and municipalities that may experience intermittent service as we ramp up optimization of our network.”
He added that they are in more than 37-percent population coverage now and are fast approaching 2nd year population coverage commitments of 51-percent.
On the issue of areas not covered by their network, the CTO had this to say, “We do ask for the public’s understanding. There may be instances where consumers may already detect DITO especially in areas wherein we have not formally announced the availability of service, let me reiterate that in these unserved areas, there are some components that we are readying to ensure the customer experience is excellent.”
