CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – Converge ICT Solutions Founder and CEO Dennis Anthony H. Uy said around 13 million households in the Luzon Island will have end-to-end fiber internet connection in the next five years.

          Uy, one of the emerging IT moguls in the country, said there are currently 25 million households in the Luzon Island but was eyeing to at least serve half of that number in 2025. Converge has already laid out its backbone all over the Luzon Island and is now looking at Visayas and Mindanao.

          Uy said they will start their Cebu operation this October.Converge currently have around 1.2 million subscribers.

          On Thursday, the Angeles-based businessman took delivery of 445 service vehicles of Converge ICT Solutions – 400 Suzuki and 45 Mitsubishi L300s. The formal turnover ceremony of the vehicles was graced by Laus Group of Companies (LGC) Chairman and CEO Lisset Laus-Velasco and LGC President Paul “Concon” Laus.

          The vehicles will be distributed out all over Luzon Island to support Converge’s increasing operations.

          When asked why did he choose LGC (vehicles), Uy said: “O siyempre, Kapampangan ku. Siyempre Kong Levy is my friend and at the same time ninu pang suapan tamu nung aliwa ing kabalen mismu (Of course, I am a Kapampangan. I am a friend of Levy (Laus) and at the same time who would I support other than our fellow Kapampangans).

          “This is our contribution to local businessmen especially during this pandemic we have to help Kapampangan businessmen,” said Uy.

          “Yung service nila maganda at the same time ever since dito ako bumibili,” according to Uy.
