*Article updated to include new areas covered
With DITO continuously expanding its services in the Philippines, the third telco announced that in time for the country’s 123rd Independence day, they will be offering two new plans on top of the DITO 299 plan that they have right now.
These two new plans are DITO Unli 499 and DITO 99. Both new plans will be offered from June 12 to 18, with Unli 499 available exclusively via the official DITO store in Lazada and Shopee and plan 99 available via the DITO app.
The DITO Unli 499 plan aims to offer unlimited data for 30 days—where subscribers can enjoy the network’s full speed for the first 2GB (per day) and have consistent 5mbps speeds once they reach the daily 2GB high-speed data cap. Like the DITO 299 plan, the Unli 499 Plan will also come with unlimited texts to all networks, unlimited DITO-to-DITO calls, and 300 minutes of calls to other networks.
DITO 99, on the other hand, offers 10GB of data for 30 days while also having unlimited texts to all networks, unlimited DITO-to-DITO calls, and 300 minutes of calls to other networks as well.
