the firm’s expansion plans that include Cebu City.
Converge’s soft launch in Cebu last November, it has already covered more than
440,000 households, spanning 48 cities and municipalities, and more than a

a solid telecommunication infrastructure is crucial to progress especially as
the pandemic made online communications a new norm and the demand for fiber

the next few weeks, Uy said the company is also set to open its business center
in Cebu City, as well as begin serving Talisay, Cordova, and Lapu-Lapu City in
one of the most developed provinces in the country.
