TL;DR: DITO Telecommunity has extended its Welcome Offer promo date up to April 15, 2021.
Philippines’ third telco DITO Telecommunity has extended its Welcome Offer promo period to April 1 to 15, 2021. The new date was announced on its website, where it previously stated a promo period of March 8 to 31, 2021.
The change was likely spurred by recent events related to the pandemic.
The promo details have not changed though. The package is still priced at Php 199, and comes with the following:
- DITO SIM Card
- Unlimited date for 30 days upon activation of the SIM card
- Unlimited DITO-to-DITO calls and text for 30 days upon activation of the SIM card
There are a couple of things to consider before you should avail. First, you would need a smartphone that’s compatible with a DITO SIM card. You could check out the list here. Basically, their service requires VoLTE or Voice Over LTE, so if your phone doesn’t have that feature, then you’re out of luck.
Second, DITO is only available in select areas on Visayas and Mindanao. But it is coming to Metro Manila soon.
DITO SIM cards can be purchased in DITO retail outlets or the DITO online store. Prepaid load credits are available on the DITO mobile app or in DITO retail outlets.
The regular DITO SIM card is priced at Php 40.00. It comes with 1GB mobile data valid for 7 days.
The app is not yet available on the Google Play Store. A link will be sent to users where the app can be downloaded upon purchase and activation of the SIM card.
