He added that DITO is now in more than 37% population coverage, and is fast approaching to its 2nd year population coverage commitments of 51%.
On the issue of areas not covered by DITO, the DITO CTO had this to say, “We do ask for the public’s understanding. There may be instances where consumers may already detect DITO especially in areas wherein we have not formally announced the availability of service, let me reiterate that in these unserved areas, there are some components that we are readying to ensure the customer experience is excellent.”
