DITO Telecommunity announced on Monday that it “started distributing smartphones with free DITO service to frontliners in Davao City.”
In a Facebook post, DITO, formerly known as Mindanao Islamic Telephone Co. (Mislatel), said the move is “in line with our commitment to provide better and more accessible services to Filipinos.”
Among the lucky recipients were Daisylen Apostol, a nurse’s aide assigned to care for COVID-19 patients at the Southern Philippines Medical Center and Mae Ann Jean Justol, Grade 1 teacher at the Alfredo A. Aledia Elementary School, Davao City.
“This is just the beginning,” the third player in the telecom industry said.
“Our plan is to share the DITO journey to more than 3,000 frontliners in Visayas and Mindanao as part of DITO’s efforts to give back to the Filipino people and build stronger communities.”
Last March 8, 2021, DITO’s “commercial activities” were launched in key areas in Visayas (Carcar City, Cebu City, Consolacion, Danao City, Liloan, Mandaue City, Minglanilla, Naga City, San Fernando, and Talisay City) and Mindanao (Davao City, Panabo City, Tagum City, Carmen and Digos City). MDM?
