Dito Telecommunity Corporation, formerly known as Mindanao Islamic Telephone Company, Inc. or Mislatel, is a telecommunications company in the Philippines that is also engaged in multimedia and information technology.
It is a consortium of Davao businessman Dennis Uy’s Udenna Corporation (through its subsidiary Dito Holdings Corporation) and Chinese state-owned China Telecommunications Corporation, a parent company of China Telecom.
The consortium is the sole winner of the government-sanctioned bidding that would allow the consortium to become the third major telecommunications provider in the Philippines, challenging the duopoly of PLDT and Globe Telecom.
