Converge drives Phl esports through its fiber technology

Having access to a fast, stable, and consistent internet connection helps gamers unleash their full potential and showcase their talent. Internet setbacks are one of the biggest challenges today with gamers hyper-focused on bringing home the bacon and establishing a name for themselves.

The rise of Philippine esports continues to thrive as Filipino gamers are offered unique avenues to pursue their hobbies as careers through various online tournaments. Converge ICT Solutions Inc. grabs the opportunity to support Filipino esports athletes by providing pure end-to-end fiber technology to help the players experience seamless gaming.

Due to stay-at-home orders, online gaming grew to be one of the Filipino’s pastimes, amplified by a wide array of equipment from consoles, mobiles, and PC available on e-commerce platforms. More than just the gaming experience, gamers have grown fond of designing their gaming setup to not only be aesthetically pleasing but also amplify their gaming experience. From playing in computer shops to having their own set up at home, it goes to show how much the industry has grown.

According to NewZoo, a source for games and esports analytics and market research, the Philippine esports industry is home to 43 million active gamers composed of players within the range of 18 to 25 years old, 74% of which play mobile gaming, while 65% play computer games. Females are dominating the industry making up 42% of the playing field, with male gamers closely behind at 35%.

With internet connectivity as essential in day-to-day tasks and responsibilities, it also plays a vital role in the esports industry. Having access to a fast, stable, and consistent internet connection helps gamers unleash their full potential and showcase their talent. Internet setbacks are one of the biggest challenges today with gamers hyper-focused on bringing home the bacon and establishing a name for themselves.

Earlier this year, Converge launched the first-ever customizable internet plan through FiberX Time of Day which aims to help users to be more efficient and productive in their online activities by providing higher bandwidth at their preferred time, without doubling their monthly internet service fee. Those working a 9-to-5 or attending online classes can enjoy double the speed in the day with the Day Plan, while the Night Plan is designed for employees on the night shift or the night owls online for entertainment purposes. With this, Converge, through its fiber technology, is dedicated to provide connectivity and help uplift the lives of Filipinos.

The ever-changing habits brought upon by the pandemic have led Converge into expanding its reach to the esports industry, seeing its growth and how it aligns with the brand’s vision to provide a better experience to Filipinos.  With this, Converge joins Mineski Global in launching Mineski Masters, a two-month-long series for Dota 2 and PUBG Mobile online tournaments to shed light on Filipino esports athletes aiming to stamp their mark in the industry.

We are elated to partner with Mineski to bring our vision to fruition,” said Converge Chief Operations Officer, Mr. Jesus Romero.
