With 2020 coming to a close, DITO Telecommunity is trying hard to stick to its planned March 2021 commercial launch date. To ensure that things are smooth sailing, DITO has selected a few users–particularly in Mindanao–to test run its SIM cards. This was shared in a post by Mindanao Stock Traders, where they mentioned that a select few are conducting a pilot test.
Don’t get too excited yet: since it is a pilot run, you cannot buy a DITO SIM for the meantime. Nonetheless, with the upcoming third telco starting to do a pilot test run, this shows that DITO is working hard to make it to its scheduled March 2021 commercial launch.
Aside from being able to complete four 5G calls in NCR, Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, DITO has finished constructing around 1,532 towers last October and plans to complete around 2000 towers before the year ends.
