“This is our two-pronged approach to our brand – high tech signifies our business-grade products and services that are at par with other telecommunication companies, while high touch stands for personalized customer service to our clients. While we strive to give our customers products and services that are both timely and innovative, we will never lose sight of the people who actually use the technology,” shared Eastern Communications Head of Product and Innovation Edsel Paglinawan.

Celebrated in different areas across the Philippines, these were evenings full of great food, great conversation, and great music. Eastern Communications also provides a dedicated team per carrier, ensuring its quality of service to their partners.
