As Ucom embarks on this transformation journey, it appeals to its subscribers for patience and understanding during the process. During this time, there may be temporary drops in service quality or connection interruptions, but we will inform you in advance as these planned works will take place in stages. It is these changes that are necessary to deliver an enhanced and seamless customer experience in the long run”, noted Ralph Yirikian, Director General of Ucom.

He reaffirmed the company’s dedication to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, with a focus on technology-related projects, environmental sustainability, and promoting the green concept. The company is determined to play a vital role in building a greener future for Armenia.

Ralph Yirikian also referred to the financial performance of Ucom, reflecting on a promising future. While specific numbers were not disclosed, he highlighted that the company’s performance in the first half of 2023 increased by 5% compared to the same period last year, while efficiency increased by 8%. The company has also initiated the reduction of accumulated financial liabilities.

Addressing the company’s internal affairs, Ralph Yirikian emphasized the significance of Ucom’s employees, who will be at the core of the company’s attention going forward. The management is committed to ensuring the welfare and development of its employees, recognizing them as Ucom’s most valuable asset.
