Converge ICT Solutions Inc. said Tuesday it expects subscriber base to grow by nearly 80 percent in Bicol Region as it continues to expand its pure fiber optic network this year.
“We are the only player in this southern Luzon region with a pure, end-to-end fiber network, and we are aggressively expanding as we continue laying down our domestic fiber backbone interconnecting the Philippine islands and fortifying our entire network,” said Converge chief executive Dennis Anthony Uy.
“The solid increase in our customer base in Region V is hinged on our entry into Masbate, and our deeper presence in the provinces of Albay, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, and Sorsogon,” he said.
Converge landed its pure fiber domestic subsea backbone in three points in Bicol—Pasacao in Camarines Sur, Masbate City and Milagros in Masbate.
These are key landing points in Southern Luzon, which completes the redundancy loop that starts in San Juan, Batangas and passes through Roxas-Mindoro, Boracay, Roxas- Iloilo and ends in Milagros, Masbate.
