Converge to create smart city in Subic
Posted 2 years ago
CONVERGE ICT Solutions Incorporated is planning to establish a smart city inside the Subic Bay Freeport.
This is after a recent meeting between Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) chair and administrator Wilma Eisma and Converge ICT Solutions Incorporated Chief Executive Officer Dennis Uy inside the freeport.
The telecommunications firm is eyeing the creation of the smart city with plans to establish cable landing stations and data center infrastructure that will modernize the freeport.
Converge presently provides fiber optic internet access to its subscribers in Metro Manila and the provinces of Pampanga, Tarlac Bulacan, Cavite, Batangas, and Pangasinan.
In 2009, the Congress of the Philippines enacted Republic Act 9707 to grant Converge ICT Solutions Incorporated the franchise to construct, install, establish, operate and maintain telecommunication system throughout the country.
Converge ICT Solutions, the broadband services provider behind the country’s first pure end-to-end fiber internet network, has been cited as the fastest-growing provider by the International Finance Award.
The London-based magazine stated that Converge is recognized for being true to its mission to upgrade the overall digital experience of the country.
