Senate President Vicente Sotto 3rd on Sunday expressed his anger towards his present internet service provider for its apparently non-existent service for over four days.

“Our converge internet connection has been down for 4 days now. I’m getting rid of it!  @DICTgovph,” Sotto wrote in a tweet. The DICT is the Department of Information and Communications Technology headed by former senator Gregorio Honasan 2nd.

In a Viber message to reporters, Sotto compared his present internet connection with the one provider by another company that he said “works even during bad weather.” He did not identify the other service provide.

The senator was obviously referring to Converge ICT Solutions Inc. whose internet service came under fire in November 17, 2020.

On that day, Converge became a trending topic is social media with over 14,000 tweets after its subscribers reported service disruptions in parts of the country. Currently, Converge ICT owns and operates an end-to-end proprietary fiber network spanning over 35,000 kilometers in length, reaching about 4.1 million homes in over 200 cities and municipalities across Luzon. 

As of June 30, 2020, its extensive infrastructure enables the delivery of high-speed, reliable, and affordable internet service to over 731,500 residential subscribers, more than 3,000 large enterprises and corporates, and almost 7,500 small and medium-sized enterprises.  SOVEREIGNPH
