If it’s your first time to hear about “Converge” Telecom, I shared your sentiments until early this morning when I attended the media launch of Converge’s expansion in Metro Manila and the launch of their FiberX service.
Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. is a complete ICT solutions provider in the Philippines. They intend to elevate Pinoys’ Internet experience with the launch of FiberX, iBIZ, Converge Enterprise and FiberXtreme.
The world of telecommunications does not revolve around Globe and Smart only (as Touch Mobile, Talk N’ Text and Sun Cellular are theirs as well).
In fact Converge Telecoms have been around since seevral years ago dominating central Luzon, with some engagements under other businesses, and keeping low-key in terms of marketing.
But now, they seem to be ready to expand to Metro Manila and is facing head-on the major telecom players.
Converge Fiber Network in Luzon
As part of its efforts in strengthening their fiber optic network, Converge already laid out more than 6,000 kilometers of its fiber optic reach; and is still growing. It is already servicing clients from as far north as Baguio and further down south to Batangas.
Here in Metro Manila, Converge’s pure fiber optic offering has already covered cities such as Valenzuela and Las Piñas and Muntinlupa cities down south of the metropolis. It plans to further expand its reach by putting up networks in Nasugbu, Batangas and even far north such as San Fernando in La Union.
Eventually, fiber broadband offerings will soon be enjoyed nationwide, according to Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer Dennis Anthony Uy.
“With Converge fiber broadband products, whether you are at home or at the office or your place of business, your Internet experience will surely be made better. And the best part of it is that it costs the same as your DSL connection, but made faster,” Uy explains further.
No Data Cap
But the best part is that there is “NO DATA CAP” in Internet access unlike those offered by other service providers where there’s a limit to data allowance.
Aside from bringing faster Internet to Filipinos, Romero said they will limit the existing difficulties customers experience when applying for an Internet connection.
“We thought that what’s the use of having fast Internet connection if there is a limit to data access? With FiberX, there is no more ‘data cap’ to Internet usage. We feel we will just be short-changing our customers if we put a limit to their Internet usage. Part of the experience is to make sure that customers will not wait long to get connected. We have made the application process simple, easy and fast. No more hassles, no more waiting,” says Jesus Romero, Chief Operating Officer of Converge ICT Solutions, Inc.
- FiberX 1500 comes with a burstable speed of up to 25Mbps
- FiberX2500 at up to 50Mbps
- FiberX 3500 offers connectivity of up to 100Mbps
For SMEs, Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. offers its iBIZ pure Fiber plan that allows businesses to operate faster and more efficient, with an Internet connection that has less interruptions and totally reliable. Each Converge iBIZ plan comes with free Webmail, free Web hosting and free Public IP.
For larger enterprises, Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. offers “Converge Enterprise” that comes with scalable Internet connection of up to 1Gbps, an IP MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching), Disaster Recovery, Managed Data Center Services, and other benefits for more efficient business operations.
It seems that the perennial problem of Filipinos in dealing with slow Internet connection will now be a thing of the past. Let’s see how Converge will be able to sustain their “fast, affordable, reliable, and ‘best-of-breed’ pure fiber-optic connectivity” moving forward.
