DITO not a national threat

The third telco player, supported by China telecommunications and Davao's Dennis Uy, stressed its deal with the AFP was the same with the memorandum of agreement (MOA) signed by the latter with PLDT and Globe Telecom. 

Claims on possible espionage resurfaced following Department of National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana signing off on the MOA between AFP and DITO, providing the green light for the company to deploy towers in military camps. 

DITO also vowed that its devices, equipment, and structures shall not be used to obtain classified information from the AFP.

The group even said that it has a cybersecurity plan as part of the government's requirements before they could bid for the third telco slot.

May we further remind everyone that as part of the New Major Player selection process, we have submitted our cybersecurity plan during the bidding process to prove that our networks and facilities will not compromise national security and shall abide with the National Cybersecurity Plan, said DITO Telecommunity Chief Administrative Officer Adel Tamano
