After more than a year of commercial operations, the country’s third telco DITO Telecommunity began rolling out its first-ever 5G home WiFi in 146 pilot barangays in Metro Manila.
Barangays in Manila, Caloocan, and Quezon City will be the first to experience download rates of “up to 500Mbps” with the DITO 5G Home WIFI Starter Kit.
Subscribers may get the DITO 5G Home WiFi Starter Kit at DITO Experience Stores in SM Manila, SM North EDSA in Quezon City, Robinson’s Galleria in Quezon City, and Greenhills.
The Starter Kit has a suggested retail price of P12,990.
Meanwhile, here’s the Double Data promo:
- 100GB – ₱590
- 200GB – ₱990
- 340GB – ₱1,490
- 500GB – ₱1,990
As a welcome gift, subscribers will receive 50GB of open-access data valid for 30 days, a free 3-month HBO GO membership, and 30 days of double data promotions (with DITO Rewards and data rollover).
Do you think this is worth it? For a new player like DITO with still limited towers, we expected them to offer far more affordable products and services. Given the price, I think most people would let it pass and maybe go for Smart Skyrocket and Globe’s GOMO that offer both unlimited internet and/or non-expiry data.
