Eastern Communications, the Philippines’ premier telecommunications company, has earmarked one billion pesos for capital expenditures this year as part of its ongoing national expansion and rollout of fiber network services.
Eastern Communications’ capital expenditure amounting to P1.04 billion is allotted to augment expansion efforts into more emerging sites and business hubs while continuing its network infrastructure improvements and restoration across the country this 2023.
Driven by Eastern Communications’ current offering of connectivity and internet products and the increasing demand for reliable ICT solutions, with cloud services, and cybersecurity suite, the telco reported a revenue increase of 7% in 2022 compared to its 2021 performance. Consequently, customer satisfaction also increased to score 90.92% in 2022, fulfilling the Eastern promise of high-touch service.
“We are proud of our high touch approach, and this has become our competitive advantage. Our 2022 customer satisfaction score shows our dedication to continuously delight our customers. We will bring this commitment with us as we expand to more areas in the country,” said Vince Tempongko, Co-Coordinator for Eastern Communications.
