With nearly 20 years of experience in the telecommunications industry after his resignation from PLDT last year, Alberto now serves as the independent director of DITO CME. Alberto earlier said that Uy, whom he considers as a personal friend, had approached him about the position, according to a report by Inquirer.
DITO CME is linked to DITO Telecommunity, the country’s third major telco player partly owned by China. DITO has been experiencing delays which resulted in missing its technical audit last July 8. The company said that the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) has given them a six-month extension for the audit until January 2021.
