Globacom has again recorded another feat in the annual Beacon of ICT Awards, as the telecommunications company clinched three awards at the 7th edition of the Awards held at Eko Hotel and Suites in Lagos recently.
The company came tops in the “Internet Company of the Year,” “Best GSM Company of the Year” and “Enterprise Solutions Provider of the Year” categories.
The organisers of the award, Communication week media, publishers of Communications Week, announced Globacom as winners in the three categories after an online voting conducted from November last year to March 15, 2016.
Globacom, the organisers said, earned the voters’ approval as Internet Company of the Year for its outstanding achievement in the data market in 2015.
Facts including industry statistics which showed that 53 per cent of new Internet subscribers in the last 12 months chose Globacom and the company’s emerging status as the leading operator in the data market were cited by the organisers as reasons for the award.
Communications Week Media also noted that Glo won the GSM Company of the Year because of its continued pioneering role in Nigeria’s telecommunications industry with its innovative products and quality of services.
The publication added that Globacom won the Enterprise Solutions Provider Award because the company had through its end-to-end backbone infrastructure and customer-focused business solutions become the preferred service provider for several corporate organisations.
The ceremony was chaired by Chairman of Open Media and former Executive Chairman of Nigerian Communications Commission, Dr. Ernest Ndukwe.
The company had won the Best Telecoms Company of the Year, Most Innovative Mobile Player of the Year and Undersea Cable Company of the Year at the 2015 edition of the event.
The Beacon of ICT Awards was instituted to reward the vision and enterprise of individuals and companies that have contributed to the growth of the ICT industry in a particular year.
