DITO to initially offer services in Mindanao

This was according to DITO chief administrative officer Adel Tamano's statement during a virtual briefing on Tuesday.

We want the public to know, on March 8 of this year, will be our commercial launch, Tamano said.

For the first wave, Tamano said DITO Telecommunity will first deploy its services in Mindanao "to serve the underserved areas" on the island. Select areas in the Visayas will also get to experience the group's telco services.

Seventeen cities and municipalities are covered by the initial launch, he said, noting key cities Cebu and Davao. The group, however, did not disclose the complete list.

But Tamano stressed that by mid-2021, DITO Telecommunity will be "available throughout the country."

Tamano also noted there are 20 physical retail stores being constructed in Visayas and Mindanao in time for DITO's March commercial launch.

The DITO official refused to provide details on the telco startup's product offerings.

The government also assigned DITO with the following prefixes for their customers: 0991, 0992, 0993, 0994; and 0898, 089, 0896, and 0895.

This development came a day after the third telco player passed the first technical performance audit.

The new challenger to PLDT and Globe is backed by Davao's Dennis Uy and China Telecommunications.
