Telecommunications provider DITO Telecommunity announced that it now serves 12 million subscribers as of Aug. 26, 2022.
The telco player set this target by year-end but managed to attain it in less than a year and a half, consistently surpassing set milestones since it began commercial operations in March 2021.
The company also pointed to the speed of its network rollout as contributing to its rapid subscriber growth. With more than 5,500 cellular towers built, DITO Telecommunity has increased its coverage to over 600 cities and municipalities and has effectively breached its 70% population coverage target.
Since the company’s inception, DITO started offering and empowering its customers with next-gen nationwide, making its architecture 5G from the ground up. Other telco players that preceded DITO may have deployed 5G in the country first, but theirs is a non-standalone (NSA) 5G network still assisted by their existing 4G infrastructure.
DITO’s 5G technology provides greater capacity, wider coverage, and faster internet connection speed which is 20 times faster than 4G.
DITO also provides VoLTE and ViLTE to its consumers. Through VoLTE and ViLTE, customers can enjoy clear phone calls while maintaining fast data connection and enable video calls without the need for video calling mobile applications, respectively.
