Mislatel is now DITO Telecommunity

Posted on by Caroline Siñel in SMS Industry

The 3rd major telco that we know as Mislatel Consortium will be renamed as Dito Telecommunity after being granted a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) by President Rodrigo Duterte.

“Let me take this opportunity to pose this challenge to Mislatel [Consortium]: Break the prevailing duopoly in the telecommunications industry and fulfill your commitment to provide better telco services to our people.” – President Rodrigo Duterte said during the issuance ceremony.

Mislatel has also been granted a set of frequencies last year after passing the NMP selction process. These frequencies, together with the CPCN, gives them the license to operate as a telecoms service provider in the country.

Dito Telecommunity is expected to roll out its services in 2020.
