Dito Telecommunity teased plans to continue expanding its network by commencing mobile service in parts of the greater metropolitan Manila region on 17 May.
In a teaser on Twitter today (12 May), the third major operator in the Philippines highlighted recent deployments in Central and South Luzon (the country’s largest island), and in Cebu island. A separate post asks “Manila are you ready” and indicates there are “five days to go”.
Dito introduced a special monthly promotion offering 25GB of data for PHP199 ($4.16).
The company commenced operations in 17 cities in southern Philippines in March, a year later than originally planned. Around the same time, a senate committee approved an extension of the operator’s mobile franchise by 25 years after ruling Dito had delivered on its service commitments.
In a recent stock market filing, Dito revealed an investment of around PHP13.6 billion in a data centre facility at Clark Aviation Complex north of Manila, with plans to inject an additional PHP6.9 billion over the next four years.Subscribe to our daily newsletter Back
