The Philippines’ third telco player, Dito Telecommunity, has officially launched its services in Metro Manila.

The company announced on Monday (May 17) the expansion of its services to 46 areas in Luzon and Visayas, which included zones in the National Capital Region. 

This comes two months after the telco’s initial launch in parts of Visayas and Mindanao, diversifying its reach to a total of 100 cities in the country.

“Dito has not stopped working, we have pushed harder than ever. Dito is now in 100 cities, including Metro Manila,” Dito Chairman and CEO Dennis Uy said in a statement. 

“Dito is now available in close to 2,000 stores in various cities nationwide from a mere 10 to 20 stores last March 8,” he added. 

At present, Dito has amassed a user base of 500,000, which Dito Chief Technology Officer Rodolfo Santiago expects to receive a major boost now that their services have become available in parts of the NCR. 

“The half a million subscribers only covers the 54 cities and municipalities. And with the addition of 46 cities and municipalities, we expect that this will drastically increase,” Santiago shared. 

Dito Chief Administrative Officer Adel Tamano seconded the statement, saying the company’s subscriber growth is ‘sustainable.’ Tamano foresees the total consumer number to increase to 2.5 million by the end of 2021.

“With our launch in NCR, hopefully we get more and more subscribers. For sure, it is safe for us to say definitely a couple of million by the end of the year, that’s our goal. Just do the math, in 54 cities we did 500,000 in less than two months,” she explained. 

According to Dito, they will continue to expand operations in the coming months.
