Premier Philippine telecommunications Eastern Communications recently expanded its footprint in Bicol as part of its continued commitment to provide strong connections and empower businesses from different parts of the country.

As Eastern Communications enters the market of Sorsogon, Naga and Legazpi, it celebrated the event by launching its trademark webinar known as “Via Eastern: Forging Strong Connections”. The telco officially announced the availability of their world-class products and services, ranging from connectivity, data, and collaboration solutions for the locals in the province of Bicol. The expansion is in accordance with their goal of democratizing technology in the country to help businesses of all sizes emerge stronger in 2022.

The launch, entitled “The Digital Shift: Transformation of a Traditional Media Giant” was attended by members of the Albay Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) and Metro Naga Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MNCCI). Also invited at the launch was Cookie Bartolome, who works in ABS-CBN and is a local Bicolana, who spoke on the importance of the digital shift in doing business.
