NOW CORP. is signing more long-term deals with clients for its fixed wireless broadband service, the latest of which is with a local e-sports company.

The Velarde-led listed firm said in a statement Monday it has signed a two-year service agreement with BrenPro, Inc. to provide its Fiber Air service to the company’s e-sports training facility in Makati City.

“Internet connection is mission critical for BrenPro and Now Corp.’s Fiber Air is more than capable and willing to answer the challenges of low latency and high capacity internet and provide the best service it can to improve and promote the Philippine esports industry,” Now Corp. Chief Operating Officer Rodolfo P. Pantoja was quoted in the statement as saying.

Now Corp. said BrenPro’s 2,000-square meter office in Makati is home to the biggest e-sports training complex in Southeast Asia. It is also used for several professional video production and professional live streaming events.

“We are confident that our internet service will provide the competitive advantage that BrenPro is looking for,” Mr. Pantoja said.

For his part, BrenPro Chief Operating Officer Leo Andrew “Jab” Escutin said the company chose Now Corp. because of the quick activation of the service which took less than a month. “We value partnerships that provide a premium, value added care to our needs. Now’s first-class accommodation endeared their brand with BrenPro’s brand of excellence,” he was quoted as saying.




The announcement of Now Corp.’s partnership with BrenPro came after it said last week it also signed a multi-year agreement with Union Bank of the Philippines to provide connectivity in its headquarters in Ortigas Center, Pasig City. — Denise A. Valdez
