Converge ICT offers new flexible internet plans for SMEs

Internet service provider Converge ICT Solutions on Wednesday, March 3, launched two new internet plans giving small and medium enterprises (SMEs) flexibility in bandwidth.

Converge launched Flexibiz Daytime which will give SME subscribers faster internet speeds from 7 am to 6:59 pm.

This option starts at 50 megabits per second (Mbps) during work hours and 25 Mbps for off-peak hours at P2,000. The plan is up to P15,000 for 300 Mbps during work hours and 150 Mbps off-peak speed.

In a briefing on Wednesday, Converge product management head Gilbert Virtucio said SMEs have tighter budgets, so they typically cannot increase internet bandwidth even if needed.

"Through the implementation of our network, we configured that we can give our SME twice the bandwidth and when they are not there in the office, we will revert it to the lower bandwidth," said Virtucio.

For those who need 24/7 high-speed internet, Converge offers a premium plan called Flexibiz Peak which starts at 50 Mbps for P3,000 up to 300 Mbps for P18,000.

Converge's older SME plans MicroBiz and iBiz – which offer 10 Mbps to 50 Mbps speeds – will no longer be available to new subscribers.

Existing subscribers can switch to these new plans by extending their current contract. But Converge said there will be a price difference if the subscriber comes from a lower-priced plan. – Rappler.com
