Converge ICT announced that, as of the end of September 2022, its fiber footprint in the Philippines is now nearly 600,000 kilometers.
The telco’s fiber optic cable network currently stretches from the northernmost areas of Luzon to the islands of Visayas and Mindanao.
Converge CEO Dennis Anthony Uy said that they continue to invest aggressively in the expansion of its fiber footprint in the country to make sure that Filipinos can have internet access and also create redundancy to ensure the best possible experience for its customers.
Moreover, Converge said that they have added more than 1.7 million fiber ports in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao during the same period to expand its coverage to additional cities and municipalities.
The company said that they were able to put up 600,000 fiber ports in Visayas and Mindanao by the end of July, doubling the numbers it achieved by the end of 2021.
Converge ICT is following its “Go Deep” and “Go National” strategies to strengthen and increase its fiber network coverage in the country and even reach unserved and underserved areas.
