The telco said in early February that it allotted PHP 50 billion for its network rollout this year. At that time, DITO said that it would keep its commitment to the Filipino people and to the government.

We’re spending more than P50 billion and that funding is already there. We’re not going to comment on DITO CME, what they said the stock rights was for…Nandun na ang pera,” DITO Telecommunity chief administrative officer Tamano said at that time.

DITO also said that it is on track to meet its 3rd-year commitments during the technical audit set in July.
