Third telco player DITO Telecommunity Corp passed its first year of technical audit, the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) said Monday ahead of the company's commercial launch next month.

DITO's coverage reached 37.48% of the population covering 8,860 barangays, the NTC said citing the report of independent auditor R.G. Manabat & Co.

The NTC however noted that DITO still has no subscribers so far.

In terms of broadband speed, the NTC said DITO went beyond the minimum average speed set at 27 megabits per second (Mbps) with 85.9 Mbps for 4G and 507.5 Mbps for 5G.

DITO also recorded the following average speeds:

  • Near the base station: 102.4 Mbps (4G) and 769.1 Mbps (5G)
  • Middle point: 91.2 Mbps (4G) and 437.1 Mbps (5G)
  • Far from the base station: 64.4 Mbps (4G) and 316.5 Mbps (5G)

"DITO's entry in the market is a welcome development in the telco industry. A healthier competition within the industry fulfills President Duterte's promise to the Filipino people of better telco service thru cheaper prices and improved internet speed," the NTC said.
