Converge ICT Fiber ISP Thread (never ever hard reset your modem and refer to page 1 for FAQs)

  • no hate on converge but unless they buy their own international cable di nila kakayanin makipagsabayan kay PLDT when it comes to speed stability and performance.

    karamihan ng friend ko na nag try mag converge dito sa area namin pangit exp nila, tinatapos lng daw nila lock in period then lilipat sila PLDT.

  • @hhhhhmmmmmph

    yep, im using the android plex app and smooth naman sa 720p HD na stream
  • @clampzy

    May source ka tungkol sa walang international cable ung converge? Lagi ko nababasa din yun, pero from experience parang hindi naman totoo since mas mababa ping ng converge sa valorant and genshin compared to PLDT.

    If totoo nga na nakikiride lang converge sa PLDT, bat mas mataas ping ng PLDT?
  • ^ I think so too... A week or two ago may nasirang submarine cable ang PLDT.. and hindi naman ako naapektuhan... But my friends using PLDT sobrang lag talaga sa online games last week.. So I guess iba ang international cable na ginagamit ni Converge
  • I think case-by-case basis ang ping. Sa akin since Fighting Games ang focus namin, which is more peer-to-peer, mas maganda talaga ping ng PLDT in general lalo na kung ang kalaro mo is Taiwan-Japan-South Korea. Pero kapag games with servers like marami sa mga popular games, okay naman Converge for the most part.
  • ^
    Converge is just leasing their international backbone from PLDT. Kung mapapansin nyo madalas affected din ang converge pag may int'l cable problem si PLDT but not all the times and as far as I know only PLDT and GLOBE have their own int'l/submarine cable.
  • So I guess iba ang international cable na ginagamit ni Converge


    'di ko rin sure ito eh, ever since nagloko yung submarine cable, nag-iba din yung state ng ping ko with various people. Sa iba umok lang, pero connections ko to Japan, Taiwan, and Thailand, medyo nagloko nung nangyari yun.

    At the very least swerte ako na wala akong naexp na major outage in terms of yung online work ko. Pero sa gaming naramdaman ko yung difference.

    Note: this happened multiple times in the past. d ko nlng hhnapin isa isa but im pretty sure they are just leasing on PLDT's backbone.

  • ^Imo, Wala namang problema if naglelease sila ng submarine cable owned by PLDT and Globe. Kailangan ng mahabang planning at costly yung pagcocommission ng intl. submarine cable. Besides, PLDT and Globe are consider veterani in the industry, kaya hindi na nakakapagtaka na hawak nila majority ng mga landing stations dito. Sa case naman ng Converge, yung problema nila sa reliability, problema na talaga nila yun. Hindi pa ganoon ka-smooth yung network infrastructure nila. Focus din nila yung kanilang CDSCN nationwide backbone. Once siguro matapos yun, they might commission an intl. submarine cable na sila talaga may hawak.
  • Good morning po sa inyo, sino dito ang LOS ngayon sa Tondo area. Salamat po.

    thats true, nakiki ride lang sila sa international cable ng pldt & globe, kaya hirap sila imanage yung data traffic, kung ano lang yung binayaran nila na data yun lang pagkakasyahin nila, sa mga nababasa ko currently focus sila sa domestic fiber rollout, connecting islands of vismin, expect heavy data traffic pag operational na sila sa mga lugar na yan, yung gabi ng lagim hindi na nila magawan ng paraan

    Yep , ofc pldt or globe will only let them lease a certain amount of bandwidth traffic na hindi makaka apekto sa current infra nila. Kung lumalake yung subscriber base ng converge tapos limited lng kaya i handle ng int'l line nila tlgang mwla sila mggwa khit sabhin ntin ok yung infra nila dito sa pinas.

  • Patulong po... Hindi nako maka connect sa WAN pag binalik ko sa "Route WAN" yung "2_INTERNET_R_VID_10". Pag naka "Bridge WAN", ok naman nakakakuha naman ng WAN IP yung xiaomi router... Ifflash ko kasi sa X-WRT yung xiaomi router and i need the routing function ng converge router/modem temporarily para may internet padin. Pero ayaw na talaga magconnect sa wan pag binabalik ko sa route mode... TIA po!

  • ilan ping nyo sa dota 2,valorant?
  • On Valorant and Dota2

    Normal is 30-35.

    Pag madami connected nasa 50-60
  • Good day mga boss! Paano ko kaya maseset ang maximum concurrent connection ko sa converge? May nabasa po kasi akong 3000 daw po ang ang cgnat threshold. Iseset ko po sana sa 3000. Maraming salamat po in advance!
  • Naisip ko lang, if tutuo na nakiki ride lang si Converge kay Globe at PLDT, bakit Converge yung rumored partner ng Satellite Internet service ni Elon Musk sa Pinas?
  • ^
    If totoo yang rumors na yan it will be probably mobile data plan since wlang cellsite tower si converge only ftth.

    Tska di rumor na nakikiride lng si converge kay PLDT and Globe, even sky is just riding with this 2 giant telco's int'l cable.

  • LOS San Jose del Monte, Bulacan

    Meron ba sa website ng converge yung contract ng plan? Di ko kasi magets bakit di pwede iapply sakanila yung time-without-service pag nagloloko connection nila
  • @newbiehelp
    If you're using a third-party router kagaya nung Newifi (Gocloud Firmware), maari kang mag-set ng threshold limit dun. Idk lang sa ibang routers tho.

    @clampzy
    Nah, Broadband pa rin yan. It will most likely cater yung mga areas na hindi accessible ng fiber or mahirap pasukan. Ang daming islands dito sa atin. It will be beneficial sa mga nakatira likewise sa Converge din dahil mas mahal yung cost ng paglalatag ng fiber cable undersea compared sa Starlink.

    @Kentaro25
    Nakalagay sa TOS, kagaya ng ibang ISPs, 80%. That is roughly ~ 6 days of total downtime per month.

  • @Driz pero sa ibang ISP yung isang buong araw na walang net nadededict pro rated sa billing. Curiously why sa converge parang walang nakakagawa nun
  • @Driz_12 maraming salamat po sa pagsagot! Sino po ang nakaka alam mag set ng threshold limit sa mikrotik? Maraming salamat po in advance!
  • Naisip ko lang, if tutuo na nakiki ride lang si Converge kay Globe at PLDT, bakit Converge yung rumored partner ng Satellite Internet service ni Elon Musk sa Pinas?


    rumored lang yun para pataasin yung stock value nila sa PSE, pa hype lang ganun, hindi naman totoo at hindi kakayanin ng network capacity nila, kung mag reresearch online wala kang makikitang own submarine international link ang converge, puro added capacity lang sila from their source (pldt&globe)
  • AFAIK din nakikiride lang on both PLDT and Globe si Converge and wala pang sariling submarine cable. It costs $$$ to do that and I guess hindi a nila kaya ito. It will take years din to implement this.

  • guys need help na email na kasi ni converge sakin yung static ip details ko, then nilagay ko sa modem walang net, tried also sa third party router wala ding internet pag ini-input ko na yung static ip, may need paba ako baguhin sa modem or sa third party router para gumana yung static ip thanks!

    PS

    tagal mag reply ni converge kaya nag babakasakali ako dito
  • ^
    wala ka kelangan palitan sa modem ng converge kung 1 static ip lng inavail mo pero kung 5 static above may mag coconfig na technician dyan sa inyo
  • ^ regarding sa static pede ko ba gawin na 1 static 1 bridge mode na cgnat?
