I recently emailed Dito Telecoms a.k.a. Dito Telecommunity on when they will start their service and I got a reply from email@example.com that it will be March 2021.
The 3rd Telco – Dito Telecommunity – is probably a play on the words telecom and community.
I checked their website at dito.ph and check the services that they will be offering and based on the following information, it seems that they will only offer Mobile Services, not wired Internet connection.
So I emailed them for a follow-up and I’m still waiting for a reply. I am looking forward for the start of their service because my current ISP, Globe, still doesn’t have speed upgrade to my 3 mbps wired Internet connection.
However, it seems that having Dito Telecommunity would not change that because I need a wired Internet connection preferably speeds of 10 mbps or higher (requirement for Work From Home jobs). I do hope they would offer it soon since the demand for WFH jobs increased due to the pandemic of the Corona Virus Diseas (Covid 19)
27 Mbps on a mobile connection seems far from reality. But let’s give them the benefit of the doubt
The 3rd Telco is actually a campaign promise of Duterte. He said that we should have a 3rd Telco in his 1st year in office. However, he’s still in office for 4 years now and we still don’t have (technically) a working 3rd Telco
I am still hoping that the wired Internet connection will be under Data Products & Services.
