Converge ICT Competitive Fiber Plans

Converge ICT (Information and Communication Technology) has now stepped up and getting into the center stage for Philippine ISPs (Internet Service Providers) not so competitive market. Converge ICT has launched their Fiber Optic plans "FiberX" for home / small businesses. They have been a quiet player in the telecom industry but now they are ready to play with the giants: PLDT and Globe.

They promise better speed, larger bandwidths, and consistent performance for their FIBERX plans through pure end-to-end Fiber technology. The question is "real performance" so here's a thread from tipidpc: Converge ICT Fiber ISP, still nobody is perfect, Converge ICT has its flaws. But what's good about this Converge ICT's plans is that it will surely improve the competition and the Filipino people will benefit along the way.

Speaking of competition PLDT has intensified their promotion of their own version of Fiber plans "PLDT HOME FIBR"

It is very clear that Converge ICT won. There's a 399 PHP difference between their 20 Mbps and 50 Mbps Fiber Plans and it's a lot because you will pay it monthly for years.

Fiber Optic technology is still concentrated within highly developed urban areas, the real winner would be the one who will cover the most part of the Philippine archipelago with reliable, fast, and best value for money for their service.
