Before we get excited, having the network’s server listed on Speedtest.net doesn’t mean that the network is already available for commercial use. It’s most likely the telco is testing its systems to make sure it can fulfill its commitments.

According to the contract signed by Dito Telecom and the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), Dito should be able to provide a speed of 20 Mbps to at least 37,390,372 users in 7,425 barangays in the first year of its 5-year roll-out. To accomplish this, Dito is targeting to build 1,600 towers.
In a PhilStar report in February 2020, Dito chief administrative officer Adel Tamano said that Dito Telecommunity will launch its commercial operations by March 2021.
