The technical audit of DITO Telecom, is a requirement that it agreed to when it won the third telco license in the year 2018.

R.G. Manabat & Co., an affiliate of international audit firm KPMG, will test the connectivity and Internet speeds in various areas to ensure that Dito is compliant with its commitments.
