Converge strengthens foothold in North Luzon

By: Converge Admin | 27 Sep 2021

Leading fiber broadband operator Converge ICT Solutions Inc. has completed its fiber optic loop in North Luzon, making its high-speed broadband network in the region completely redundant.

“Amid the continued community quarantine restrictions and lockdowns, Filipinos consume more and more bandwidth at home for work, school, and entertainment. Thus, we aim to cater to the growing demand across the country, including North Luzon. We are happy to announce that our fiber network in the region is now completely redundant. This means if there should be a fiber break in the area, services will continue,” said Converge CEO Dennis Anthony Uy.

A network is deemed redundant when it has alternate links – network devices and network elements – in its infrastructure that will ensure network availability in case there’s an interruption in one part of the network. In other words, it means having a ‘network back-up’ that ensures availability and stability of the service.

Moreover, signaling its rally in North Luzon, Converge will be finishing the ‘total fiberization’ of Pangasinan and La Union this month as it reaches the major cities and municipalities in these provinces where broadband services are urgently needed.

In other regions in North Luzon, Converge is mounting a continued push for ‘deepening’ the network, and started servicing 14 new cities and municipalities across Nueva Vizcaya, Isabela, Cagayan, Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, and Quirino.

“We’re making good on our promise to connect the unserved and underserved areas in the Philippines. With this development, coupled with our ‘Go National’ strategy in reaching Visayas and Mindanao, Converge is truly fiber-powering the country,” added Uy.

In the second quarter of 2021, Converge has extended its coverage to an additional 53 cities and municipalities from the quarter before, and has passed 8.1 million households as of the end of June 2021. Converge remains on track to cover 55% of Philippine households with its fiber optic network by 2025.
