“This award is not only significant to Converge, but to our country, as this means that the world now recognizes our efforts to reach more unserved and underserved Filipinos and provide them access to world-class connectivity. We will continue to innovate to bring superior and differentiated products as well as exceptional service at the best value in the market,” said Mr. Romero in his acceptance remarks.

The PTC Awards honor international carriers and technology companies pushing the envelope in the ICT field and bringing fresh innovation in telecommunications. 

The awards evaluate nominees on both qualitative (bridging the digital divide, community impact) and quantitative (revenues, profitability, subscriber reach) measures.  

In 2021, Converge’s subscriber base reached 1.5 million and its network passed over 9.6 million homes as of end Q32021. This translates to 37.6 % household coverage nationwide, placing Converge on track to reach the Company’s accelerated target to cover approximately 55% of households in the Philippines by 2023.

The Pacific Telecommunications Council is the latest award-giving body to recognize Converge’s transformative innovation and technological excellence, others being Asia Corporate Excellence and Sustainability Awards, the Asia CEO Awards, and the Asia Pacific Enterprise Awards, to name a few.

For 2022, Converge is pursuing its Go Deep strategy, eyeing to expand its provincial backbone in Visayas and Mindanao. 

In the last quarter of 2021, Converge finished its much-talked about digital highway, completing both the in-land, and the subsea segments of the project. 

With the 1,800-km subsea cable project connected to the 90,000-km+ domestic fiber backbone, Converge can now serve more underserved and unserved areas in the country.
