ICT solutions and services provider Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. has introduced new pure fiber-optic connectivity offerings capable of providing high-speed Internet to home, micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), and large enterprise users, with no “data cap.”

“We thought that what’s the use of having fast internet connection if there is a limit to data access? With FiberX, there is no more ‘data cap’ to Internet usage. We feel we will just be short-changing our customers if we put a limit to their Internet usage,” says Jesus Romero, Chief Operating Officer at Converge ICT Solutions, Inc.

Romero adds that the existing difficulties customers are getting into when applying for internet connection will be lessened. “Part of the experience is to make sure that customers will not wait long to get connected. We have made the application process simple, easy and fast. No more hassles, no more waiting,” he said.

Depending on Internet usage, Converge ICT Solutions offers FiberX in three plan types starting at FiberX1500 which comes with a burstable speed of up to 25Mbps.

This plan, considered as the lowest in the country, used to have a speed of up to 20Mbps. Other plans include FiberX2000 with connectivity of up to 50Mbps and Fiber3500 with up to 100Mbps. For users who want even faster connectivity, they can avail of FiberXtreme that comes in burstable speeds of 300Mbps and 500Mpbs and priced at Php4,500 and Php7,000, respectively.
