The country's third telecommunications company, DITO Telecommunity shared their updated timeline through the company's Chief Administrative Officer Adel Tamano.



According to Atty. Adel Tamano, the company is still "on track" to meet its commercial launch in March 2021 despite delays in its technical audit originally set last July.
