Converge sees opportunities in VisMin

In a statement, the company said it has laid out more than 600,000 fiber ports in the Visayas and Mindanao, double the 300,000 ports deployed as of end-2021.

Converge said the two main islands have become "a vital growth area" for the telco, accounting for nearly a fifth or 20 percent of the total gross subscriber adds in the second quarter of 2022.

For 2022, we've focused our efforts on expanding our presence in Visayas and Mindanao as these remain to be underserved and are untapped markets for us. There is still a lot of room to grow in these two regions. That's why we’ve sped up the rollout of ports in VisMin cities, and we are doubling down on reaching these eager customers, said Converge Chief Operations Officer Jesus C. Romero.

To complement its network rollout, Converge opened business centers in key locations in Cebu.

Converge CEO Dennis Anthony Uy said the group is bullish about its operations in the Visayas and Mindanao markets, stressing consumers there are "clamoring for world-class fiber connectivity."

As the economy opens, Converge also sees many opportunities in the small- and medium-sized enterprise segment, which increased by 26 percent during the first six months of 2022.

Converge recently bagged major connectivity contracts in the Visayas, helping boost the local tourism economy's transition to digital. Major hotels such as JPark Island Resort and Waterpark, Sarrosa Hotel, and Bai Hotel - all in Cebu - are now fiber-powered by Converge.
