Telco firm Converge ICT Solutions to expand in Cebu

Telecommunications firm Converge ICT Solutions Inc. is seeing a boost in fiber connection in Cebu barangays as it sets its sights on the small and medium enterprise (SME) market for its expansion program.

 

“We’ve already hit the ground running when we had our soft launch in Cebu last November. Considering that we’ve only been operating in Mandaue and Cebu cities on a limited basis, we’ve already signed on thousands of subscribers and established partnerships with small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and enterprise clients,” said

Converge chief executive officer and co-founder Dennis Anthony Uy.

 

 The telecom company had the grand opening of its regional corporate office and business center in Mandaue City on Monday. 

 

Converge ICT Solutions president and CEO Dennis Anthony Uy has earlier met with Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella and told him of the firm’s expansion plans that include Cebu City.

 

Since 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 thousand barangays. 

 

Converge’s expansion in the Visayas bodes well with the National Broadband Program (NBP) of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), which aims to deploy broadband capacity across the nation, especially in areas that are remote, inaccessible, and considered unprofitable by the private sector. 

 

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

 

In 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.
