The Philippines’ third telco now covers its most populated region. DITO Telecommunity, as expected, has officially launched its mobile services in the National Capital Region (hello, Metro Manila).

DITO says it is now available in more than 100 key areas nationwide, with 46 cities and municipalities in the country’s capital region joining the initial 54 locations where the company launched first. As far as we know, only 4G services are available right now for NCR customers, although that could change soon.

Initial speed tests we’ve done on DITO’s 4G network

You need an unlocked VoLTE [Voice over LTE]-compatible device to use DITO’s networks. If you have a feature phone, or an old smartphone from a few years ago, it’s unlikely that it will be able to receive a signal, let alone send a text message or make a voice call. You can refer to this table to see the latest list of fully compatible handsets on the local market, or simply hit up Google to find out if your device supports VoLTE.

The new areas covered in the NCR include the following:

  • Caloocan
  • Las Pinas
  • Makati
  • Malabon
  • Mandaluyong
  • Manila
  • Marikina
