Converge to start building P1-B data center in Cebu this year

CONVERGE ICT Solutions, Inc. announced on Tuesday that the construction of its P1-billion data center in Cebu will begin “this year.”

In a statement, the company said the construction of a data center in Cebu is part of its preparations to “serve the surge in the data requirements in Visayas and Mindanao amid its aggressive expansion in central and southern Philippines.”

“This data center is quite important especially for the Visayas as the demand for digital services and data requirements are going up,” Converge Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder Dennis Anthony H. Uy said.

The company recently bought a property in Mandaue City, Cebu, where the data center will be built.

Converge said the data center will initially have 300 racks to meet demand and will be housed in a six-storey building with a customer contact center.

“In addition to its core fixed broadband services, Converge also offers data center services to enterprise clients such as network management services, multi-homed network, disaster recovery services, network redundancy solutions, 24/7 monitoring, co-location and local connectivity,” the company noted.

The company’s first data center was built in 2016 in the National Capital Region.

“Converge has invested P6 billion for its domestic submarine cable network that connected the Visayas and Mindanao to its national fiber backbone and distribution network which already reached over 69,000 kilometers as of end-April,” the company also noted.

The company also announced on Tuesday that in the coming weeks, it will be able to serve consumers and enterprises in Talisay, Cordova, and Lapu-Lapu.

Converge ICT shares closed 1.85% higher at P22 apiece on Tuesday. — Arjay L. Balinbin
