Digital connectivity is on the horizon for underserved and unserved provinces in the countryas EasyCall Communications Philippines, Inc. seeks to utilize its data communications and satellite technology.
“The need for connectivity is more important than ever, and we feel the responsibility to open up that possibility to millions of Filipinos who have limited connectivity access,” Zaki Delgado, EasyCall president said.
Delgado said the telco firm has allotted time and money to boost its infrastructure as well as expertise in preparation for its move to deliver “access to reliable connectivity and internet access” nationwide.
Delgado said EasyCall has successfully launched its EasyNet VSAT managed service to underserved and unserved provincial communities in Samar, Quezon, Iloilo, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Isabela, Leyte and Antique, and is currently setting up VSAT installations in Zambales, Negros Occidental, Cavite, Bicol, Isabela, Iloilo and Cebu.
“There is a critical demand for connectivity in far-flung cities and municipalities, especially in the aftermath of disasters and emergencies, for businesses with remote offices, and for efficient access to services,” Delgado said.
“Despite the complexities we are facing with the terrain and climate, VSAT can effectively deliver secure and reliable connectivity to these places, and enable progress and development,” Delgado added.
