Fiber broadband provider Converge ICT Solutions Inc. (Converge) once again topped video streaming Netflix’s ISP Speed Index in December 2022.
According to the Netflix Speed Index in December 2022, Converge garnered a speed rate of 3.6 mbps in December, with a full-year average speed of 3.42 Mbps. This is a marked improvement from the preceding six months when Converge has consistently been logging 3.4 Mbps.
“We’re proud to be recognized by a leading streaming service as the ISP giving the best experience to its viewers,” said Dennis Anthony Uy, CEO of Converge. “This is proof of the topnotch technology that goes into our network to be able to deliver quality entertainment to Filipinos.”

Network backbone data
ISP Speed Index is a measure of primetime Netflix performance on a particular ISP and not a measure of overall performance for other services or data that may travel across the specific ISP network. Faster Netflix performance generally means better picture quality, quicker start times, and fewer interruptions.
Converge is the first and only ISP in the country to upgrade its network backbone data transmission capacity to 800 Gbps. These refer to the amount of data that can be pushed through between and among data centers in the Converge network. The upgrade to the industry-leading standard makes possible high-speed data transfers that are needed for streaming, remote storage, and next-generation technologies.
Last November 2022, Converge once again doubled the speed of its base plan of 1500 from 100 to 200mbps. This is part of the company’s objective to provide internet connectivity in the Philippines that is world-class and similar to the first-world countries in Asia like Hong Kong and Singapore.
