Converge Information and Communications Technology Solutions Inc. said Wednesday it obtained the green light to provide international connectivity services in Singapore through wholly-owned subsidiary Converge ICT Singapore Pte. Ltd.
The Infocomm Media Development Authority, a statutory board under the Singapore Ministry of Communications and Information, said it approved the application of Converge SG for a facilities-based operations license.
Converge SG can start deploying telecommunications infrastructure and provide connectivity services and fiber optic cable capacity to wholesale and enterprise customers in the Southeast Asian city state effective Jan. 3, 2023.
“The grant of an FBO license to our Singapore unit significantly bolsters the ability of the Converge Group to sell international wholesale connectivity and capacity services, as we can now directly service clients in Singapore to cater to their growing needs for intra-Asia and Trans-Pacific connectivity requirements,” Converge chief executive and Converge SG director Dennis Anthony Uy said.
Converge was given the right to provide international connectivity services in Singapore including Ethernet-International Private Line service, Dedicated Internet Access service, Carrier Ethernet Network service, Internet Protocol Virtual Private Network services using Multiprotocol Label Switching and sale and resale of submarine cable capacities.
Converge announced in 2021 the incorporation of Converge SG which was aimed at marketing and selling its international cable capacity to carriers, ISPs and telcos operating and having a presence in Singapore.
