Having a strong Internet connection is one of the factors tourists consider in choosing hotels to stay in. This is why Eastern Communications, as part of its extensive expansion this year, continues to provide its business-grade connectivity solutions to hoteliers in partnership with HITAP. 

Eastern Communications now provides the internet services of popular hotels including Holiday Inn Baguio and Radisson Blu Cebu. Moreover, the telco has also been the provider of The Manila Hotel for 23 years.

“The demand in strong Internet connection could be met if hotels improve or invest on three things: IT infrastructure, security, and technology,” shares HITAP President Raffy Zacarias, “We’ve been with Eastern for two decades and their services have been incomparable.”

For years, HITAP has been helping hoteliers in the country in their decision-making process when it comes to their IT infrastructure to cater to the transforming needs of their guests. 

“The Manila hotel needs to supply our clientele with up to the global standards of internet services. Eastern Communications provides this service. It is a very crucial service at a time when hotels can no longer afford to have slow internet speeds or unreliable services,” says The Manila Hotel President Atty. Joey Lina. 

Radisson Blu Cebu General Manager Stephan Sieberg also believes that digital transformation in hotels can guarantee customer satisfaction. “Our customers expect a high-level organization with a sorrowless package; meaning we need to choose first-class partners like Eastern to ensure a high-end experience for all stakeholders,” he commends.
