Converge ICT Solutions Inc., the leading pure fiber data network and internet service provider in the Philippines, has been recognized for Best New Internet Technology Innovations in the country by the International Business Magazine Awards.
The award is in recognition of the innovative consumer product called Converge Time of Day (TOD).
Converge TOD is an innovation from Converge that allows subscribers to experience double their subscribed bandwidth during their pre-selected most productive time of day.
It was first introduced to enterprise customers who required high-quality and high-speed Internet service for business use, called DIA or Dedicated Internet Access. This was rolled out last year and has since allowed businesses and government to continue to use high-speed DIA to serve their customers and the public while reducing costs.
Converge FiberX TOD guarantees high speeds on demand and maximum productivity for consumers from 7:00 a.m. – 6:59 p.m. for the Day Plan, and 7:00 p.m. – 6:59 a.m. for the Night Plan. The Day plan is designed to benefit users who are working from home or have children at home attending online classes. The Night plan is proving to be beneficial for the graveyard shift workers or the online gamers or live streamers.
Small businesses that operate during regular office hours may avail of the FlexiBiz Daytime for twice the speed during the day and FlexiBiz Peak for those working around the clock for 24/7 high-speed connection.
Commenting on the recognition, Converge COO Jesus C. Romero said, “Innovation will always be at the heart of Converge and awards like this continue to inspire us to bring internet connectivity and solutions to every Filipino. We aspire to be a world-class ICT organization that empowers people, businesses, and the nation to be at their best.”
Converge registered a net income of nearly P5.2 billion at end-September. This indicated a year-on-year (YoY) growth of 136 percent amid continued strong growth in its subscriber base and sustained recovery of its business segment led by small and medium enterprises.
With 280,000 subscribers added in the third quarter, its total subscribers’ count has crossed 1.6 million, and its network now reaches more than 9.6 million homes.
“The efforts made by Converge are truly commendable. The commitment made by the tech company to cover approximately 55 percent of Filipino households by 2023 is noteworthy. This award further gains prominence with the fact that Converge has registered a 136 percent YoY growth in its 9 months of FY2021,” said Ujal Nair, Editor for International Business Magazine.
“Even more impressive is the fact that the internet service provider has a domestic fiber backbone of 90,000 km, passing through 440 cities. The ISP’s new FiberX Time of Day plan is certainly a unique product in the Philippines with the end-users receiving the same premium service quality but with additional flexibility. The option of choosing the high-speed internet usage window is certainly innovative and trendsetting.”
