  • A description of the next-generation technology – While the term “next-generation technology” is frequently used, what does it mean for everyday internet users? The use of next-generation technologies in telecommunications can be summarized in two words: Connectivity on a Never-Before-Seen Scale. Advanced technology enables more direct, faster, and optimized connections, resulting in efficiency beyond mobile devices. When users subscribe to DITO, they can be confident that they will receive innovative and dependable data services built on world-class digital infrastructure and technology.
  • VoLTE (Voice over LTE) is an acronym for Voice over LTE – VoLTE, an acronym for Voice over LTE, is one of the next-generation mobile applications available to DITO users. Simply put, VoLTE means that the telco company allows you to make voice calls over the faster and more reliable LTE network, rather than the slower and less reliable 2G and 3G networks. Remember when your data connection would automatically disconnect whenever you received a phone call? You won’t have to worry about any of that with VoLTE. VoLTE enables higher-quality phone calls by utilizing additional bandwidth.
  • What does “interconnected” mean? Republic Act 7925 requires the interconnection of telecommunications providers to provide universal access to Filipinos and ensure fair and healthy competition. This enables DITO subscribers to make and receive phone calls and text messages on other mobile networks.
