6 reasons why DITO’s 25GB prepaid data is for you
DITO launched in the Philippines in March starting in Mindanao, then rolled out to NCR and other provinces shortly. And as of August 2021, the telco already has over 2 million subscribers. One of the reasons people are flocking towards DITO is its competitive data packages like the 25GB data promo. But there are other reasons why you should give it a try.
1. It’s easy to avail
Back in the day, if you want to subscribe to a promo, you’ll either need to send an SMS using a keyword or slowly browse through your SIM card’s settings. Nowadays, telcos are implementing new features to make it easier for the subscriber to purchase and discover promos.
DITO skips the older methods and gives you access to the promos from the DITO app or website via https://my.dito.ph. To purchase the promo, you can use your existing load or just straight up pay using a credit or debit card, or use platforms like GCash, GrabPay, and WeChat Pay.
2. 25GB of open data
One of the best things about DITO’s 25GB prepaid data promo is that its open-data access. Meaning, you can use it for whatever you need the data for, whether it’s for gaming, streaming movies and music, for work-from-home needs, online schooling, social media browsing, or for downloading files. You don’t have to worry about allocations for certain apps, which gives you more freedom and flexibility.
3. Unlimited DITO-to-DITO calls & texts
This is one of the benefits that you will truly appreciate especially if your close contacts are also DITO subscribers. When you subscribe to DITO’s 25GB data promo, you’ll instantly get unlimited DITO-to-DITO calls and texts. We can imagine family members or couples taking advantage of this, so they can frequently keep in touch without incurring additional costs.
If they’re not DITO subscribers, do not worry as it also comes with unlimited texts and free 300 minutes of calls to other mobile networks.
4. 30 days validity
There’s nothing much to say about validity but it has a big impact on the consumer. Having a long validity such as DITO’s 30 days for the 25GB data promo gives the users more flexibility on how and when they’ll use their data, and removes the inconveniences of having to reload more often.
5. High-speed data connection
DITO’s 25GB data promo boasts a high-speed data connection, meaning there’s no capping so you can experience the full network speed available in your area. However, do note that network performance may vary depending on the area. DITO just entered the market but it’s rapidly building up its network to expand coverage in the country and improve its services to consumers. Just recently, it announced that it passed NTC’s technical audit for year 2.
Other than that. The company is also improving on how to reach more customers by launching more sales channels and partner stores where you can buy SIM cards and do top-ups, and the addition of a Viber group for real-time interaction with consumers. So far, it’s on a good track.
6. VoLTE and ViLTE support
DITO’s network takes advantage of Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Video over LTE (ViLTE). VoLTE uses the LTE network for making voice calls with better quality, while ViLTE is an extension that allows you to switch your voice calls to video calls without having to use video calling apps.
ViLTE calls are charged the same as regular DITO-to-DITO calls at PHP 6.50 / minute. If you have a promo subscription, it will be charged to your unlimited DITO-to-DITO calls. If not, standard rates will apply.
Do note that this feature only works on devices that support VoLTE and ViLTE. If you’re already using a supported device and using a DITO SIM, you can start enjoying better voice and video call quality.
