Converge ICT helps improve internet traffic, doubles bandwidth to PHOpenIX

Converge doubled its bandwidth to 20Gbps.

Converge ICT has doubled its bandwidth to PHOpenIX, the only open and neutral Internet Exchange in the country, to help improve traffic among local internet and data service carriers.

Aimed at optimizing internet usage in the country, PHOpenIX is operated by the Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI) under the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).

The current pandemic has practically funneled everyone toward online activities and transactions. This has been a major factor to the increase of internet traffic throughout the country. To help address this situation, Converge ICT voluntarily doubled to 20Gbps its port capacity with PHOpenIX. This helps enable internet users experience lower latency by keeping local traffic locally routed between service providers. The extra capacity contributes to unclogging traffic between service providers who are openly connected to PHOpenIX.
