Expanding connectivity services in Batangas

Eastern Communications plants roots of partnership with Clare Cable TeleVision, based in Taal, Batangas. The telecommunications company will provide IDS allocation to Clare Cable, further strengthening the local provider’s services to its subscribers in the towns of Taal, San Luis, and Sta. Teresita in Batangas, as the operator expands.

With its resilient connectivity to the world’s largest service providers, IDS is ideal for business startups and entrepreneurs seeking growth and catering to high demands. It can give your company the connectivity it deserves and let you stay confident at constant speeds you can’t experience anywhere else.

“When it comes to businesses with critical operations or those that require a special bandwidth, we always say that it’s best to go for Eastern IDS. Because not only will you enjoy a dedicated internet connection not shared by any other residents or businesses in the area, but also experience high-speed internet with no downtime. It’s clear that IDS is the ideal choice for stable internet connectivity in a Batangas-based company like Clare Cable,” said Castañeda.

“Since we’re in the business of keeping people connected, it was important for us to find a partner that understands this goal. In that way, Clare cable and Eastern Communications are alike, in that they may help us in achieving this connectivity with ease. At the same time, cable operators, just like other businesses, need to adjust digitally in order to strengthen our services and expand. We are very hopeful that the fruits of this partnership will satisfy all our users,” shared Engr. Corazon Reyes of Clare Cable TV.
