Converge ICT Solutions Inc. said it emerged as the most consistent fixed internet provider in eight regions, including Metro Manila, for the third consecutive quarter this year.
Based on the recent Ookla Speedtest Intelligence data for third quarter of 2021, Converge provided the most consistent high-speed broadband in Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Ilocos, Bicol, Cordillera Administrative Region, Central Visayas and Davao. These are the same areas where Converge operates.
Ookla’s data showed Converge’s average internet download speed in Metro Manila reached 81.76 megabits per second; Calrbarzon, 80.36 Mbps; Bicol, 65.47 Mbps; Davao, 62.66 Mbps; and Central Visayas, 79.54 Mbps.
Converged said that for the third quarter, it garnered a consistency score of 82.13 percent. This marked a steady improvement in consistency from 72.75 percent in the first quarter to 79.46 percent in the second quarter.
The score measures the percentage of a provider’s samples that equals or exceeds a fixed threshold of 25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload.
Converge said it had an average latency rate of 8ms and jitter rate of 19ms in the third quarter. The Philippines had an average latency rate of 20ms for third quarter.
“We take it to heart to deliver the reliable connectivity that Filipinos deserve, and being recognized by a credible entity such as Ookla confirms our hard work while we continuously expand the network and consistently provide world-class internet connectivity to more areas nationwide,” said Converge chief operations officer Jesus Romero.
