Leading fiber broadband provider Converge ICT Solutions Inc. announced their alliance with the Philippine Collegiate Championship (PCC), organized by the Central Collegiate for Esports (CCE) to elevate esports gaming lifestyles through education for the next generation of gamers. 

“We really want to understand gamers. We learned so much from our research, especially about their pain points, and they have specific needs for their internet connection for them to perform at a high level,” said Converge Chief Operations Officer Jesus C. Romero. “With our dynamic network capable of providing high-performance, high prioritization with low packet loss, low jitter, and low latency, we are ready to provide the gaming experience they deserve.”

“But to ensure their overall experience will be truly exceptional, we took a holistic approach, covering other factors like direct peering with gaming publishers, down to the right kind of router for the best WiFi gaming,” he said.

Partnering with PCC, Converge has embarked on nationwide school roadshows at various universities. The group has also collaborated closely with CHED, organizing accredited masterclasses across 12 schools nationwide, aiming to deepen students’ understanding of the gaming industry.

“Throughout the country’s history, there has been a widespread belief that indulging in video games is associated with a lack of future prospects. PCC takes pride in breaking this stigma,” CCE Chief Executive Officer Stanley Lao expresses. “The primary objective is to serve as a pathway for collegiate gamers in the Philippines, offering them the opportunity not only to showcase their skills and potentially go professional but also to ensure they maintain a responsible approach to their studies and pose as role models for other aspiring student gamers. This is why we have established partnerships with CHED and are actively engaging with educational institutions.”

In a thriving esports landscape, Converge offers a high-performance, non-blocking domestic network with 800 Mbps links in key segments and a robust, high-capacity international network. This complements the Collegiate Center for Esports’ talent development focus, as together they lead the evolution of collegiate gaming and raise the bar for esports excellence. 

The School Roadshows of Converge and PCC at each university nationwide are just one of its initiatives. Bootcamp Plan and Cloud Gaming are some of the upcoming efforts of the collaboration among the two million residential subscribers of Converge to uplift the gaming community. 

FiberX GameChanger stands as the pioneering internet service tailored specifically for gamers. To this day, Converge continues to be the only internet service provider in the Philippines to offer a gaming-oriented package. With a gaming plan of up to 800 Mbps for as low as Php 2,500, GameChanger comes with ultra-high-speed fiber internet, low jitter and latency, high prioritization, and a top-of-the-line ASUS Top-notch WiFi-6 Gaming router.
