Greetings future DITO users! #DITOnaTayo

I know that you also wanted to have this as soon as possible. Same as me, so that I can try whether if does really DITO telecom internet speed is true or it's fake.

There are a lot of questions, but one of most, if does DITO Telecom is really different with other telcos?

That is why I keep doing my research to learn more, so it will be clear not just for me but also to all of you, visitors and readers of this blog. Does it really worth it to transfer to DITO? We will only know it once we have the Sim card in our hands.

Dito Telecommunity services started March 2021 rollout, and now available here in the Philippines. Distributing SIM cards are now on-going. 

Sim card is very important when using your smartphones. This will serve as your identification number. This is commonly known as mobile number. Mobile numbers starts with first 4 digits known as mobile number prefix, this will help you to identify what telecom network your contacts are using (e.i; Globe, TM, Cherry Prepaid, or Smart, TNT and Sun.).

"What is SIM card? A subscriber identity module or subscriber identification module (SIM), widely known as a SIM card, is an integrated circuit that is intended to securely store the international mobile subscriber identity (IMSI) number and its related key, which are used to identify and authenticate subscribers on mobile telephony devices (such as mobile phones and computers). It is also possible to store contact information on many SIM cards. SIM cards are always used on GSM phones; for CDMA phones, they are only needed for newer LTE-capable handsets. SIM cards can also be used in satellite phones, smart watches, computers, or cameras."(source: Wikipedia)
