The statement a few hours after Globe issued a warning that certain individuals and online stores are selling Globe At Home modems with DITO stickers.

DITO said that a 
number of overpriced, unauthorized DITO SIM cards, and DITO-branded modems and WIFI devices have been seen to proliferate online, especially on Facebook, including Lazada and Shopee.

Atty. Adel Tamano, Chief Administrative Officer of DITO Telecommunity said,

We do understand the desire of the Filipino public to finally experience fast, affordable, and quality connectivity through DITO. However, we wish to advise everyone to please purchase DITO sim cards only from our partners, resellers, our DITO stores, and official online partner stores to avoid any issues.

Atty. Tamano noted that the list of authorized partners and resellers is available via their website www.dito.ph and that DITO sim cards are available via the official Lazada (bit.ly/DITOsaLazada) and Shopee (bit.ly/DITOsaShopee) portals.

Furthermore, we wish to inform everyone that there are unscrupulous individuals selling DITO so-called vanity or special numbers at exorbitant prices. Please be reminded that all DITO sim cards no matter the mobile number are priced the same and we at DITO do not condone this practice, added Atty. Tamano.

DITO also said that it will make available true vanity number SIM cards in the near future.

It has come to our attention that there are so-called DITO-branded modems that are being sold online. Let me take this opportunity to assure the public that the unauthorized use of the DITO branding in any form shall result in the possibility of prosecution for copyright infringement, Atty. Tamano explained.

Atty. Tamano also explained that there are no official DITO modems or pocket WiFi devices that have been launched at this time and they will not guarantee the performance and service should its SIM cards used in the said unauthorized devices.
