Converge expands domestic footprint to boost fiber power in Luzon

CONVERGE ICT Solutions Inc., the country’s first pure end-to-end fiber internet service provider, is strengthening its foothold in South, Central, and North Luzon with its “Go Deep” strategy.

With this roadmap, Converge aims to deepen the penetration and network reach in the existing markets, as well as expand in untapped provinces especially in North Luzon.

The company continuous to extensively rollout its fiber optic network to cover more cities and boost its customer service by adding manpower, communications channels, and service vehicles to proceed with its aggressive efforts despite the challenges of the pandemic.

“We see a significant potential to further penetrate Luzon, where we have already covered 49 percent of households as of Q1 of 2021. There are still areas there that are not well-served and we want to address these coverage gaps with our fiber technology. Our goal is to provide affordable and high-quality internet services that these regions deserve,” Converge Chief Operating Officer Jesus Romero said.

Staying committed to improving the quality of end-to-end fiber services in Luzon, Converge has fortified its network to provide high availability for its internet services while ensuring low latency.

The company has officially launched its high-speed fiber broadband services in the key provinces of Nueva Vizcaya, Isabela, Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, and Cagayan in Q2 of 2021.

Subscribers in these provinces can now enjoy high speed boosts of up to 800 Mbps at their preferred set time, either Day or Night, with FiberX Time of Day plans.

Converge now offers a no deposit or advance payment and installment of 24 months for the installation fee for new subscribers. Switchers from other internet service providers are offered with no cash out and 50 percent off on their monthly recurring charges for six months.

“We are expecting more subscriptions in the coming months as we are going to commercially launch in more locations in the second half of the year. Our expansion plans are strategically mapped out to ensure that we maximize our resources and network infrastructure, even beyond Luzon,” Converge Chief Operating Officer Jesus Romero said.

The company also continues to improve its customer experience by enhancing its omni-channel initiatives and opening new business centers to quickly respond to various customer needs.

To date, Converge has 53 business centers and 8 mobile business centers located and deployed nationwide.

The company is set to open 12 new business centers in key cities of Luzon alone in the coming months, including Tuguegarao, Santiago, Vigan, and Laoag. Converge also targets to deploy additional 10 mobile business centers in Luzon on the second half of the year.
