Eastern Communications sets P2.8-B for 2021 expansion

TELECOMMUNICATIONS service provider Eastern Communications said it is allotting P2.8 billion for its expansion plans this year.

“The expansion plans will cover wider service areas, including Davao City, Cagayan De Oro, Dumaguete, Tagbilaran, Bacolod, Roxas, Kalibo, Caticlan, Boracay, Naga, Legazpi, Iriga, and Sorsogon,” the company said in an e-mailed statement.

The company intends to support the government’s “digital cities” program aimed at boosting rural development.

The company had also set a capital expenditure budget of P2.8 billion last year.

“The network modernization program started last year, and despite the pandemic, Eastern Communications continued its expansion project, which will likely run throughout 2021,” it said.

The telecommunications firm recently completed its expansion in Iloilo and Tuguegarao.

Aileen D. Regio, co-coordinator of Eastern’s executive office, said: “Eastern will continue this trend and we plan to be available nationwide in the next few years.”

“This is an exciting time of growth for all of us and we, as a telecommunications company, look forward to being a big part of the Philippines’ stronger tomorrow,” she added. — Arjay L. Balinbin
