Converge ICT FiberX Unlimited Fiber Plan Compared To PLDT, Globe and Sky Broadband

Converge ICT FiberX Unlimited Fiber Plan Compared To PLDT, Globe and Sky Broadband

Before, we only have DSL/landline, Wireless Broadband, USB Dongle or Cable as an option for subscribing an internet plan. Now, another internet technology was introduced to us, which is the Fiber internet connection. This Fiber internet connection is an internet access through fiber-optic lines. What makes this different from other internet connections, unlike DSL and cable internet services that transmit electrical information through copper lines, fiber-optic lines use tiny strands of plastic or glass (just slightly thicker than a single human hair) to carry binary transmissions of light. Binary is a number system where the combination of only two numbers (0 being “off” and 1 being “on”) represent more complex symbols or instructions. This method of data transmission makes fiber internet the best option for fast speeds from 5MBPS to 1GBPS and its reliability.

In the Philippines, Fiber internet connection is one of the growing popularity in terms of internet subscription. Among these Fiber internet connection providers in the Philippines are PLDT, Globe, Sky Broadband and the new kid in the block, the Converge ICT (formerly known as ComClark). But the availability of fiber internet connections are limited to several areas only.

Converge ICT Fiber Plan boasts Pure Fiber Optic connectivity which is laid out to more than 6,600kms of Fiber Optics Cable (FOC) nationwide with the use of the latest Micro-trenching Technology, and supported with a nodal presence in the USA, Hong Kong, Cebu and Davao.
