Fiber internet provider Converge ICT Solutions Inc. deployed more than 600,00 fiber ports in central and southern Philippines in the first seven months of the year, nearly doubling its footprint in the Visayas and Mindanao regions.
Dennis Anthony Uy, Converge founder and CEO, said VisMin is increasingly becoming a vital growth area for the company, accounting for nearly a fifth or 20 percent of the total gross subscriber adds in the second quarter.
Converge chief operations officer Jesus C. Romero said the company has stepped up the rollout of ports in VisMin cities to reach undeserved and untapped markets.
” There is still a lot of room to grow in these regions,” he said.
Converge even opened business centers in key locations in Cebu.
“We remain bullish on the VisMin market and recognize the massive potential for Converge in Cebu where we see customers clamoring for world-class fiber connectivity,” Uy said.
As the economy opens, Converge also sees much opportunity in the SME Enterprise segment which increased by 26 percent during the first semester.
