Converge reigns at top of latest Netflix ISP Speed Index

Netflix, the streaming giant, evaluates ISPs monthly on the prime time performance of Netflix content on their network. This November, Converge once again took the top spot – a position it has held for most of the year.

Leading Philippine fiber broadband provider Converge ICT Solutions Inc. reigned supreme in the latest Netflix ISP Speed Index Leaderboard, coming in at the top spot – a position it has held for most of the year.

The Netflix ISP Speed Index is a measure of prime time Netflix performance on particular internet service providers (ISPs) around the globe where faster ISP speed performance generally means better picture quality, quicker start times, and fewer interruptions when watching movies, TV series, and other content on Netflix.

“As we hold on to the number one spot in this important barometer of internet performance, we are inspired to keep on doing better for our customers, especially to our more than two million subscribers who rely on our end-to-end fiber connectivity to sustain their digital life,” said Dennis Anthony Uy, CEO and Co-Founder of Converge. 

The Netflix Speed Index in November 2023 showed the speed of Converge to clock in at 3 Mbps, with its 11-month average at 3.25 Mbps. This surpasses the country’s average speed of 2.8 Mbps. 

Staying true to its commitment to give the best value for money while not sacrificing broadband quality and speed, Converge has forayed into more affordable fiber products in 2023. 

It has introduced S2S or Surf2Sawa, its prepaid fiber internet product which offers speeds of 25 Mbps for six gadgets at P700 per month. It also further expanded its postpaid portfolio with BIDA Fiber which is priced at sub-P1000, or at P888 per month, giving 35 Mbps for six gadgets.

Converge continues to set the pace for the broadband industry not just with the introduction of mass market fiber products but with the drive towards going beyond connectivity. Its Enterprise segment is now gaining traction with a slew of product offerings that add value on top of the fiber broadband connection.

Leaning on its strength as a strong, reliable, and consistent broadband provider, Converge has also partnered with TapDMV to offer subscribers free access to BlastTV, an entertainment streaming service. Converge subscribers can enjoy hundreds of top movie and television titles through any device connected to its network. Plans are underway for Converge to make a bigger splash in the over-the-top (OTT) digital services.
