/ 10:48 AM February 27, 2024

About 80,000 global tech leaders converge in Barcelona this week for the Mobile World Congress (MWC) that is expected to focus on artificial intelligence, 5G and even 5.5G, and sustainability among telecommunication companies.

Converge CEO and co-founder Dennis Anthony Uy joins the roster of conference speakers that include Dell Technologies CEO Michael Dell, Accenture Chair and CEO Julie Sweet, and HP Enterprise CEO and President Antonio Neri.

The Converge chief will talk about how fiber technology helped uplift broadband connectivity in the Philippines at the forum of optical fiber company Yangtze Optical Fiber and Cable (YOFC) entitled “All Optical Connectivity with New Value.”


The global tech and connectivity event kicked  off on Monday. The week-long MWC serves as a platform for discussions about emerging trends and issues impacting the global technology landscape

“It’s an exciting time to take part in international conferences such as this, where prominent voices in the tech industry are heard and ideas are the ultimate currency. Especially now that AI is such a topical issue, I’m sure a lot of innovative views will be shared and we will get a good pulse of where the industry is going,” Uy said in a statement.

On Wednesday (Feb 28), Uy will take the stage at the forum of YOFC and impart the Philippines’ fiber journey from its introduction in the 1990s to the present, and the rise of broadband use and penetration in the Philippines, especially during the market-disrupting entry of Converge at the height of the pandemic.

“Apart from the industry talk, I’m also excited to share a snapshot of the Philippines’ connectivity landscape at the forum. The pandemic truly changed the picture of the entire market, not just with the growth of Converge; the Philippines was forced to embrace technology and it presented us with as many opportunities as challenges,” Uy said.
