MANILA, Philippines — New major telecommunications player Dito Telecommunity is expanding its commercial coverage to more areas as it looks to further grow its subscriber base, which has so far hit the two million mark.
By Aug. 6, Dito will be commercially available in 17 more areas in Batangas, Cavite, Iloilo, Cebu, Misamis Oriental, Bukidnon, Davao Del Norte, Davao Del Sur, South Cotabato, and Compostela Valley by Aug. 6.
Last Friday, the telco added 10 more new areas, making it commercially available in a total of 168 cities and municipalities nationwide to date.
Aside from expanding its coverage in various areas nationwide, Dito also continues to make its products and services accessible to more Filipinos by opening new sales channels and partnering with more retailers.
Dito has 30,000 sales touchpoints all over the country and is available for purchase and top up via the Dito E-shop, Dito App, Shopee, and Lazada.
Dito chief administrative officer Adel Tamano said two-million Filipinos have joined its fast growing network as of Aug. 1.
The company made its commercial debut last March 8 in selected areas in Visayas and Mindanao and made its much-awaited entry in Metro Manila on May 17.
The telco owned by the group of Davao-based businessman Dennis Uy and state-owned China Telecommunications intends to end the year with a couple of million subscribers.
