EASTERN Communications, one of the premier telecommunications companies in the country, is further expanding services to more areas, with ongoing network buildup in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao this 2020.
The telecommunications company aims to be present in Davao, Cagayan De Oro, Iloilo, Bacolod, Tarlac, Cagayan Valley and La Union while targeting Cebu, Batangas, Laguna, Rizal, Cavite, Cebu, and Bulacan for its network expansion and modernization program.
A total of P2.8-billion capital expenditure will be allotted as Eastern Communications envisions providing the Philippine businesses and households with innovative services and a faster, more reliable internet connection, a company statement said.
The capex will go towards expanding its footprint and reach as well as the modernization of its existing network.
“Eastern Communications has transformed in terms of the services we’re now offering to our customers and we have also expanded our footprint in other key areas in the Philippines. Our goal this year is to go nationwide” said Atty. Aileen Regio, Co-Coordinator.
This includes a focus on not only providing fast and reliable internet connections but also managed service-based products that complement its portfolio of telecommunications and ICT solutions.
“With our unwavering customer service, Eastern Communications will continue to provide connectivity and ICT solutions to help our clients harness the full potential of digital transformation through achieving agile, secure, and flexible workplace,” said Hermi Hizon, Co-Coordinator
For 2019, Eastern Communications reported revenue of P3.3 billion, up by 22 percent from 2018.
The company attributed this growth to several factors such as network coverage expansion, increased sales in the small and medium-sized enterprises market, and new products.
Eastern Communications launched a variety of connectivity products and ICT solutions, which included their newly upgraded and most advanced Cloud Service and Cyber Defense as part of High-Tech promise to provide the best and right solutions to businesses.
