In video and gaming experience, Converge also outperformed rivals with Video Score of 86.58 and Game Score of 88.27, solidifying its position for smooth streaming and lag-free online gaming.

“Our path to this achievement was guided by the singular mission of answering the broadband needs of Filipinos,” said Dennis Anthony H. Uy, CEO and Co-Founder of Converge.

“We are glad to be recognized by Ookla for this collective hard work that ultimately led us to a clean sweep of their top awards including the Fastest Internet Service Provider.”

The recognition continues Converge’s streak of Ookla Speedtest Awards victories, including Best ISP Video Experience (2022-H2), Top-Rated Fixed Network (2022-H1), and Most Consistent Fixed Internet Provider (2021, 11 regions).

“What we’re seeing is a changing of the guard in the industry and this comes as no surprise given our hard-earned investments into our fiber network. In the end, service excellence through innovation and technology ruled the day,” shared Converge President and Co-Founder Grace Y. Uy.

“In the course of mindful outstanding service to our more than two million customers and ensuring that we keep improving so that we deliver the best services catering to their needs, being the fastest, best video, best gaming, and top rated [internet] show our commitment that we never rest to give our customers the best internet experience,” Converge Chief Operations Officer Jesus C. Romero noted.

Converge caters to diverse customer segments with tailor-made fiber plans, ranging from value-oriented options like FiberX and its broadband plan for gaming enthusiasts called GameChanger to premium enterprise solutions like Direct Internet Access. Additionally, the company offers the first-in-the-country prepaid (Surf2Sawa) and postpaid (BIDA) fiber broadband plans for budget-conscious families.

Looking ahead, Converge is committed to expanding its fiber infrastructure and investing in groundbreaking projects like the Bifrost Cable System, the first trans-Pacific cable connecting Southeast Asia to the west coast of North America; and the SEA-H2X Submarine Cable System, the direct trans-Asia cable connecting the Philippines to Hong Kong and Singapore.

These investments aim to significantly boost the country’s internet capacity and connectivity in the coming years.

JM's highest stat is probably his curious ardor to anything tech—electronics and gaming in particular. He certainly heeds utmost regard to specsheet, visuals, and rule of thirds. If creativity and wit sometimes leave JM's system, watching films, anime and a good stroll for memes are his approved therapeutic claims.

    FYI. broadband is shared bandwidth. “Up to” or bursting lang ang technology. 30% of the Maximum Bandwidth ang guaranteed bandwidth. Ex. Plan is up to 300 Mbps then 90mbps is the guaranteed bandwidth. but 80% of the time makukuha ang maximum bandwidth.

    well pldt is busy peddling internet fiber accessories which constantly bugs my cellphone. Haayss. Their promo is not easy or maraming che2x bureche. Tapos ang remittance namin na may withholding hindi e honor kahit nagpadala pa kami ng withholding tax certificate. Attention BIR on this. May landline free daw pero hindi magamit. Ang tagal ng repair service, minsan naghire na ako ng outside at nagbayad. Dapat deducted ang downtime sa monthly bill. Then we have a case na nag upgrade ang monthly bill even without applying for one.

      Fastest my ass! I’ve been having issues since September last year. My plan is 800mbps. We get less than 100mbps. We would be lucky to get 200. Been complaining almost daily since September. Nothing is done, promises of “they will get back to me”. It’s almost 6 months now.
