Third telco player Dito Telecommunity will roll out its maiden service in 15 areas on Monday, March 8, kicking off its commercial launch.

Ahead of the launch, Dito released on Tuesday, March 2, the list of areas where it will first offer 4G and 5G SIM cards:

1. Metro Cebu

  • Carcar City
  • Cebu City
  • Consolacion
  • Danao City
  • Liloan
  • Mandaue City
  • Minglanilla
  • Naga City
  • San Fernando
  • Talisay City

2. Metro Davao

  • Panabo City
  • Tagum City
  • Carmen
  • Davao City
  • Digos City

Dito will expand into other areas in the next few months. It targets to be available nationwide by mid-2021.

By 2022, Dito chief administrative officer Adel Tamano said they plan to venture into broadband.

Earlier, the 3rd telco player said its decision to launch in Mindanao was “sentimental,” given the roots of Mindanao Islamic Telephone before it rebranded to Dito. – Rappler.com
