NTC Commissioner Cabarios says Dito delivered its commitments first year audit at faster speeds but connections may be slower if they cannot put up more infrastructure. The July audit requires a minimum 55Mbps connection.
Third-party auditor KPMG confirms that Dito met its first-year commitments to the DICT:

• Population coverage - 37.48% (minimum: 37.03%)
• Average connection speed - 85.9Mbps for 4G, 507.5Mbps for 5G (minimum 27Mbps)

Tamano says Dito's funding is 77% debt, 23% equity
Dito's Tamano on choosing VisMin for initial commercial rollout: We wanted to be different. Other companies, they start with NCR when they roll out. We first rolled out in areas that are unserved and underserved
Dito's Tamano says network services will reach Metro Manila 'by May or June'. The initial rollout areas were limited to select towns and provinces in Visayas, Mindanao
Speed tests done by Dito in Cebu City showed an outdoor connection speed of 114.02Mbps and 74.91Mbps indoors.
Tamano: Dito targets to corner at least more than 30% of market share. By 3rd year of operations, we will already be positive and by the 5th year, we will be able to pay off our loans for true profitability.
Dito's Tamano: When it comes to building permits, we always remind our contractors, subcontractors they must be fully compliant with requirements first.
Sen. Migz Zubiri thinks Smart, Globe have 'slacked off' in expansion or improvement of services as he continues to experience poor signal and dropped calls even within Metro Manila: It's good to have decent competition in place.
