PLDT, Dito Telecommunity ink interconnection deal

Telco giant PLDT and 3rd telco player Dito Telecommunity are partnering for the construction of a transmission facility which will serve as an interconnection point for their subscribers.

The interconnection hub will deliver the intercarrier requirements of Dito, allowing both subscribers of Dito and PLDT-Smart to communicate to each other.

PLDT will establish and manage the interconnection facility. The hub is expected to be completed by end-March, in time for Dito's commercial launch.

"Dito knew from Day 1 that in order for us to deliver our commitment to the Filipino, we needed to work hand in hand with the pioneers of the telco industry like PLDT," said Dito chairman and chief executive officer Dennis Uy in a statement on Tuesday, February 23.

Dito chief technology officer Rodolfo Santiago said an interconnection hub with Globe Telecom is also being built.

Dito has delivered on its first-year requirements and surpassed the required minimum average broadband speed. Based on the first technical audit, the average speed recorded for 4G was at 85.9 megabits per second (Mbps) while 5G speed was at 507.5 Mbps. – Rappler.com
