DITO Telecom is preparing for its launch in March 2021, but in order to do that, it needs the right infrastructure. And as you will see, they are more than willing to invest in order to gain the utmost value and supremacy in this field. Accoridng to Atty. Adel Tamano from the company, they are going to invest more than P27 billion over the next year just to expand the network. They do want to plan 1500 5G cell sites next year and 3500 fourth generation ones.
This is a massive investment, but considering the amount of backing the DITO Telecom has, it’s easy to see why they are willing to go this big. They already spent around P150 billion for the initial infrastructure and for a variety of operational expenses. So yes, they are working really hard at this time to bring in great solutions, and that will surely pay off for them more than they might imagine in the long run. One thing is certain, the solutions are incredible and they are going to impress a lot of people. It will take some time to introduce and implement everything rightfully, but it will be worth it and that’s what matters the most.
At the middle of September, the company had 859 of the 1300 towers already good to go, and they do want to deliver 27 MB per second to customers, while also gaining a 37% coverage. Considering that the company is not launched yet, this is quite the achievement and it will bring in front some interesting benefits.
The company also signed 6 more contractors like ALT Global, Zeal Power, LCS Holdings, CEEC Tower as well as Aboitiz and the LEO Group. So yes, they are working very hard to make these investments a reality, and they really have the potential to do that.
It’s definitely not a walk in the park, but they are working hard to deliver 5701 km of cable when finished. The rollout is definitely underway, and they are doing the best they can to really push things to the next level and adapt as much as possible.
The backing and funding has been great for the telecom business, and they are now doing everything in their power to achieve success and really push the brand to that next level. The possibilities are great here, and the company is investing a lot to deliver the best outcome!
