DITO said that while its services would be limited to these areas for its initial launch, its network across the country is "already ready".

DITO chief administrative officer Adel Tamano last week said that the group will be "available throughout the country" by the middle of this year.

The National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) said the third telco player passed the technical performance, citing findings from independent auditor R.G. Manabat and Co.

For the first year, DITO promised to provide 27 megabits per second of speed, covering 37 percent of the Philippine population.

In its technical audit, DITO's coverage reached 37.48 percent or 37,845,315 based on the 2015 national census population of 100.983 million. This is equivalent to 8,860 barangays.

In terms of speed, DITO was able to record minimum average broadband speeds at 85.9 Mbps for 4G and 507.5 Mbps for 5G. Speeds were faster near base stations: 102.4 Mbps for 4G and 769.1 Mbps for 5G.
