Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. said that it will work closely with the provincial government of Cavite to assure the early completion of the installation of fiber-optic cables in the province.
The company signed recently a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Cavite to help provide the province with the benefits of pure-fiber Internet connectivity.
Under the MOA, allows Converge ICT will lay more than 300 kilometers of fiber-optic cables in the province’s 7 cities and 16 municipalities. Once completed, the people of Cavite will enjoy Internet connectivity that’s reliable, dependable, fast, and with absolutely no “data cap!”
Cavite Governor Jesus Crispin “Boying” Remulla lauded the partnership with Converge ICT. “We hope to start a digital revolution in our province with this project. We all know that we have one of the slowest, if not the slowest, Internet connections in the world. But that will end real soon here in Cavite, and hopefully the Philippines, too, with this partnership with Converge ICT,” declares Governor Remulla.
“After Metro Manila and other key cities, it is Cavite’s turn to maximize the power of fiber-optic Internet. We certainly look forward to digitalization of the province of Cavite and many others one step at a time. We know it will take quite a while, but we will get there,” declares Dennis Anthony Uy, Chief Executive Officer of Converge ICT Solutions, Inc.
After Cavite, Uy said they are already looking at other provinces in the southern Tagalog region. Ultimately, Converge ICT will reach other areas in the Philippines such as Visayas and Mindanao to let more people enjoy the power and speed of pure fiber-optic Internet connectivity.
The installation has already started as we speak in Cavite’s key cities such as Trece Martires, Bacoor and Imus with a minimum speed of 25mbps.
“We’re optimistic about finishing the project early. We have the benefit of modern-age equipment in laying fiber-optic cables on the ground using ‘micro-trenching’ technology. We’ve proven its capability in the National Capital Region and other areas so I know we can finish the project on time and provide Cavite with faster-than –ever Internet connectivity,” he adds.
Uy expressed readiness to make Cavite a showcase of the power of fiber optic technology that Converge ICT offers. “There’s nothing that can beat fiber optic Internet at this time. It’s easy to install and most of all, it’s now made affordable by Converge ICT.”
