Converge ICT helps improve internet traffic by doubling bandwidth to PHOpenIX

Converge ICT has doubled its bandwidth to PHOpenIX, the only open and neutral Internet Exchange in the country that enables the exchanges of Internet traffic in a free-market environment 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), mandated to lead the research and development of technology solutions to modernize Information and Communications Technology and microelectronics in the country.

The current pandemic has practically funneled everyone towards online activities and transactions. This has been a major contributing 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 to experience lower latency by keeping local traffic locally routed between all service providers connected through PHOpenIX as well as government websites. The extra capacity contributes to unclogging traffic between service providers who are openly connected to PHOpenIX.

Internet exchange organizations such as PHOpenIX need more service providers to increase their bandwidth in order to support localized traffic to accommodate new norm internet demand requirements.

Converge ICT continuously forges the digital transformation of the country through consumer-centricism and innovation – all to drive new levels of efficiency, attain future readiness even at these times and, most importantly, contribute to national growth.
