Globe, Converge tie up to expand fiber optic networks 

GLOBE TELECOM, Inc. has partnered with Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. for co-build projects in Bicol and Leyte to extend fiber optic networks.

“By pooling our resources and expertise, we’re not only expanding our network more efficiently but also significantly lowering the costs associated with such extensive infrastructure projects,”  Joel R. Agustin, Globe senior vice-president and head of network planning and engineering, said in a statement on Sunday.

The collaboration between Globe and Converge was forged in February 2022 and was completed in the third quarter of the same year. 

The project covers co-building of projects stretching 137 kilometers from Pili, Camarines Sur, to Legazpi City, Albay, as well as the deployment of microduct solution underground facilities.

With the completion of the project, Globe said that it has decided to embark on a second co-build project with Converge in Leyte covering 209 kilometers to connect Tacloban and Maasin.

The second project is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2024.

“These initiatives fall under Globe’s core fortification program, designed to achieve comprehensive enhancements, expand fiber network, upgrade network capacity, and accommodate Hyperscalers’ needs,” Globe said. 

Mr. Agustin said this partnership allows Globe to improve its network availability and consistency. 

“We share the same focus on delivering reliable service to our customers,” he said. — A.E.O. Jose
