EasyCall Communications Philippines Inc. said it will focus on providing data communications and satellite technology to bring connectivity to far-flung Philippine provinces.
“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,” Easycall president Zaki Delgado said.
The company over the years rolled out its EasyNet VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) 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 as part of efforts to continue to improve the digital landscape of the Philippines.
“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. Despite the complexities we are facing with the terrain and climate [of the Philippines], VSAT can effectively deliver secure and reliable connectivity to these places, and enable progress and development,” Delgado adds.
VSAT is a two-way satellite communications system that can transmit and receive data via remote terminals or hubs. EasyCall has developed expertise and infrastructure in an effort to provide opportunities for inclusive growth through access to reliable connectivity and internet access in unserved and underserved areas around the country.
EasyCall, which soared to market leadership in the 90s as a top provider of pagers, has since shifted direction after the onset of SMS and text messaging in the 2000s.
From its active involvement in the IT-BPO industry over the past decade, it has turned to VSAT technology to bridge the digital divide in the country.
Easycall is a telecommunications company that provides data connectivity, technology services and business process outsourcing.
