Converge ICT Solutions powers Ayala Alabang with super fast, reliable and reasonably-priced pure fiber internet connection.
W hen I say that I’m a stereotypical millennial, I mean it. A huge chunk of my life depends on the internet. Aside from the usual suspects (*ehem* social media), I’m a work-at-home mom who manages websites and writes online articles for a living. Thus, a stable internet connection at home is really a non-negotiable for me.
My family is quite lucky that we live in a relatively new village, where developers were able to include the more contemporary needs--such as fiber-optic-laying--into their plans. So now, we are enjoying at least 50 Mbps of internet download speed 24/7. My clients are very happy about that.
The key to these fantastic Speedtest results is a fiber-based internet connection.“Fiber” refers to optical fiber—the thin, durable and glass-based cables that transmit the internet signals in such mode of connection. What makes these cables special is that they’re able to transfer signals in the form of light—which, as we learned from elementary physics—is the fastest thing in the universe(a.k.a.“speed barrier”).
Thus, a fiber connection is the fastest that the internet can get, and boy is it really fast. By comparison, the fastest DSL plan I am aware of is 15 Mbps, while a pure fiber connection could reach up to 100 Mbps, and absolutely no data caps.
So, why don’t we all upgrade from DSL to fiber now? The problem is availability. For fiber to be accessible to your home, there has to be optic fiber cables embedded in the area, where your home’s connection can latch onto. Another factor is the cost. Since there aren’t many Telco players in the country, the giants can charge a very high cost for their services with almost no consequences.
Thankfully, there’s a new player in town: Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. They already offer pure optic fiber connection to residents and businesses in Mandaluyong, Makati, Quezon City, Valenzuela, Las Piñas, Batangas, and Cavite. They are aggressively expanding their coverage by conducting pure fiber-laying initiatives, the latest one of which is in the Ayala Alabang area.
Ayala Alabang Village residents don’t even have to worry that the fiber-laying activities would be disruptive. Converge uses the latest“micro trenching” technology, which makes the laying of fiber-optic cables super fast and effective. No Maynilad-level excavations, promise! Here’s a video that shows how micro trenching works.
And the cost? Very reasonable and significantly cheaper than competition. With Converge’s FiberX 1500, your home can get a steady internet connection with a burstable speed of up to 25 Mbps for only Php 1,500 per month. There’s also FiberX 2500 with speeds of up to 50 Mbps for only Php 2,500 a month; and FiberX 3500 of up to 100 Mbps connectivity for only Php 3,500 per month.
