DITO Telecommunity now in Metro Manila

May 17, 2021

Dito Telecommunity launched its services in Metro Manila on Monday, May 17, in a bid to pursue a "very aggressive" expansion as part of its commitments to the government.

Since its commercial launch in March, which was initially in the Visayas and Mindanao, Dito chairman Dennis Uy said the third telco player has now reached over 100 cities and municipalities.

In the first two months of the rollout, its subscriber count reached 500,000 in 54 cities and municipalities.

Aside from Metro Manila, Dito is also now available in the following areas:


  • Taytay
  • Cainta
  • Antipolo City


  • Malolos City
  • Meycauayan City
  • Marilao
  • San Jose del Monte City
  • Bocaue
  • Hagonoy
  • Bulakan


  • Balanga City
  • Dinalupihan


  • Subic
  • Olongapo


  • Moncada


  • Angeles City
  • Mabalacat City
  • Mexico
  • Guagua


  • Cabuyao City
  • San Pedro City
  • Santa Rosa City
  • Biñan City


  • Cuenca
  • San Jose


  • Carmona
  • Dasmariñas City


  • Lapu-Lapu City
  • Dumanjug

Dito's introductory promo of P199, also launched on Monday, includes 25 gigabytes of data, unlimited texts to all networks, unlimited Dito-to-Dito calls, and 300 minutes worth of calls to other networks. The promo runs until June 30, valid for 30 days upon subscription.

Dito chief administrative officer Adel Tamano is confident that the current rate of increase in users is "sustainable" – which would mean about 2.5 million subscribers by the end of 2021.

While dominant players Globe Telecom and PLDT saw strong growth in their fixed-line businesses versus wireless services, Tamano believes that Dito's product is even more "relevant because it's fast."

Dito earlier said it has plans of venturing into the fixed broadband business in 2022, but chief technology officer Rodolfo Santiago on Monday raised the challenge of laying out the infrastructure due to restrictions.

According to its commitment for the second year of operations, Dito should have a minimum speed of 51 megabits per second (Mbps) and should be able to cover 51% of the population. The second technical audit will be in July.

To achieve the committed speed, Santiago said Dito is eyeing to roll out 5G services.
