Dito Telecommunity surpasses its commitments, according to a notice received from the National Telecommunications Commission

Third telco player Dito Telecommunity passed the technical audit for its second-year commitments with the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC).

In a regulatory filing on Tuesday, September 7, Dito CME Holdings said the third telco already received a notice from the NTC on the technical audit.

Quoting the findings of the independent auditor, the NTC told Dito that the calculated national population coverage reached 52.75%.

Dito’s minimum average broadband speed, meanwhile, was at 89.13 megabits per second and 853.96 Mbps for its 4G and 5G sites, respectively.

According to its commitments, Dito should be able to cover 51.01% of the population, while the minimum average broadband speed should reach 55 Mbps.

Dito executives earlier said rolling out 5G services would help the telco achieve its second-year commitments. It partnered with Nokia to deploy 5G in Mindanao.

Dito first launched in the Visayas and Mindanao in March and in Metro Manila in May. So far, it said it has over 2 million users. – Rappler.com
