The internet connection problem has been the agony of the Filipino people considering that by and large, Filipinos are tech savvy and one of the heaviest users of social media.
According to Better Broadband Alliance, the 93% in the Philippines still uses 3G instead of the faster 4G, and the Philippines ranks 2nd in the world for slowest 3G, 4G and Converge ICT wants to solve that problem.
Dennis Anthony Uy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Converge ICT eyes to be the third major player in the internet service provider in the Philippines to solve the agony of the Filipino people in the snail pace internet connection. Converge IT solutions is being considered to be eligible on becoming third major player in the internet service provider that would compete with Globe and PLDT.
However, Uy said that they will still carefully evaluate if they will pursue to bid to be third major player because there are things that the government needs to address.
“First they have to address the regulation and legislative agenda. The frequency alone you cannot even compete. My priority is to make the digital highway (fixed line) first. This will roll out everything faster and easier”, Uy explained. Converge ICT plans to expand fiber internet connection in the entire Philippines until 2021 that woud benefit 13M households.
While Converge ICT is a new player, they are now considered as the fastest internet service compared with their competitors and also based on the internet experience of their users.
