MANILA — “New kid on the block” DITO Telecommunity is currently facing the risk of losing all of its subscribers nationwide.
This is the opinion of independent mobile analytics firm Opensignal saying DITO Telecommunity is lagging behind its competitors as such, the country’s newest telco player might lose a chunk of its subscribers.
Opensignal said DITO subscribers have been experiencing download speeds of 16, 11 and 26 percent slower against Globe and PLDT in Metro Manila, Cebu, and Davao in the past two months.
“This is even with the benefit of having a small subs base. As users grow, we see network quality gaps as increasing,” Opensignal said in its report on Dito’s performance.
As a result of this, Opensignal claimed subscribers or users opt to choose PLDT and Globe over DITO.
“Dito faces a limited network footprint and risks losing subscribers to Globe and PLDT which are both focused on expanding their gap or superiority over the former,” Opensignal said.
