Converge ICT Solutions Inc. have reached the shores of world-class island destination Boracay as it continues to expand its domestic footprint to travel destinations nationwide.
“Nationwide expansion and making sure we reach Filipinos’ homes is a long game. This is why we push on with our fiber deployment nationwide, particularly in Visayas and Mindanao where we are still a relatively new name. Two years on and we are where we want to be: we are securing our foothold and making a name for ourselves especially in establishing our presence in high interest tourist destinations,” said Converge CEO and co-founder Dennis Anthony Uy.
Aside from Boracay, Converge is also present in key tourist destinations nationwide such as Bohol, Cebu, Davao, Coron, Baler, Batangas, Puerto Galera and La Union, offering tailor-fit solutions for the hospitality industry.
“As restrictions have eased, we are very happy to be present in these key areas to help boost tourism and assist businesses and SMEs in their recovery. The pandemic proved that the only way forward is to embrace connectivity and maximize the benefits of technology. We are here to show that Converge not only offers them world-class connectivity, but also technology solutions that can give their businesses a competitive edge,” Uy said.
With over 7.9 million ports as of December 2022, Converge now has the broadest fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network in the Philippines. It rolled out 2 million fiber ports in 2022 alone, driven by the robust expansion in Visayas and Mindanao. In 2023, Converge aims to roll-out more ports in the Visayas and Mindanao.
VisMin accounted for a fifth of Converge’s nearly 1 million subscriber base in the fourth quarter of 2022. Aside from Aklan, Converge is present in nine other provinces in Visayas, while in Mindanao, it is present in 11 major provinces.
For 2023, Converge is looking to expand to new cities in Bohol, Zamboanga, Palawan, and more cities in Aklan.
