Globacom bags 3 awards

Globacom Limited weekend won three industry awards at the 2008 Nigeria Telecoms Awards, which held in Lagos.

A press statement from the Second National Operator (SNO), informed that Globacom was adjudged the Best Telecoms Company of the Year, The Best Mobile Company of the Year and Best Telecoms Investor of the Year.

Philips Consulting conducted the rating as part of the annual Nigeria Telecoms
Awards organised by Logica communication, publishers of Telecom News, an industry review magazine.

With the three awards, Globacom, which operates in the fixed, mobile, broadband and International Gateway communications sub sectors, sits atop the industry in terms of overall performance.

Globacom said the operator was named Telecoms Company of the Year because of its integrated operations, which have seen the company consolidating on its mobile and fixed services while laying optic fibre cables across the country to provide infrastructure for broadband data and voice communications. The infrastructure is already carrying traffic for other operators and the corporate sector. The fixed line arm of Globacom has commenced the connection of customers in both Lagos and Abuja while the switches in various other cities across the country are being completed.

Also as the Telecoms Investor of the Year, the organizer in the citation released said Glo was rated high for its recent international rollout in Ghana and Benin republic.

“Its submarine cable project running from Lagos to the United Kingdom through the West African coast was also listed in the consideration,” the press statement read.
On the best Mobile Company, Globacom was rated for its value-added services, fast rollout and quality of service, which is attested to by industry regulator, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).
