Converge ICT Solutions Inc. (Converge), a fixed broadband service provider, has been named the Broadband Telecom Company of the Year (Philippines) at the Asian Telecom Awards 2023. The recognition marks Converge’s second consecutive year of being recognized as the Philippines’ choice of network.
Asian Telecom Awards ceremony took place at the Conrad Centennial in Singapore. The event marked the return of on-site presentations for the award show, bringing together industry leaders of the telecommunications industry in Asia to recognize and celebrate their achievements.
“This recognition is given at a very pivotal moment in our company’s journey towards digital democracy,” said Dennis Anthony Uy, co-founder and CEO of Converge. “Right now we are expanding the access of low-income classes to digitalization through prepaid products, and awards such as this motivate us on our mission to bridge the digital divide and make sure that when it comes to world-class connectivity, we will leave no one behind.
The recognition highlighted the efforts Converge made during its record-breaking run in 2022. Recognized as the Top Rated Fixed Network in the Philippines for the first and second quarters of 2022 by network intelligence and connectivity insights leader Ookla, the ICT company went on to become the largest fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network in the country after expanding in more areas and regions with its pure fiber footprint now spanning over 646,000 kilometers and 60% nationwide household coverage.
Digital access as a fundamental right
