DITO attracts more mobile users

In a statement, the company said it has been seeing "a faster subscription uptake" as it continues to reach more areas across the Philippines.

DITO hit this latest milestone less than a month after the company announced it exceeded the 10-million mark, reflecting the telco's sustained growth trend since it commercially launched last March 2021, DITO Telecommunity Chief Administrative Officer Adel Tamano said.

By 2022, DITO is eyeing to have 12 million subscribers.

The group said it already had a presence in more than 600 cities and municipalities nationwide in July. It hopes to further grow this number to about 800 areas.

An earlier report from Ookla said the Philippine telco market is a "duopoly no more" following the entry of DITO.

According to Ookla, the country's LTE performance has improved—increasing from 11.15 Mbps in the first quarter of 2021 to 15.53 Mbps in the first three months of 2022.

Our analysis suggests that DITO’s entry combined with regulatory changes, resulted in more network investment and an overall improvement in 4G coverage and performance across all operators, Ookla said.
