The award winners were announced in the House of Commons by Dr Julian Huppert MP and Vice Chair of the Parliamentary Internet Communications and Technology Forum. The ceremony marked the third ITSPA award for Telappliant in three consecutive years.
Awards were presented in eight categories that represent the range and scope of the VoIP and Unified Communications industry in Britain. Telappliant was also shortlisted in the ‘Best Business ITSP (Small Enterprise)’ and ‘Best Consumer VoIP’ categories. An independent third party, Malden Electronics, conducted two months of technical testing for all three awards.
Tom Dobson, Head of Business Sales at Telappliant, commented, "We are thrilled to have won the ITSPA Award for Best Business ITSP, as well as to have been shortlisted in two additional categories. This ‘best in industry’ recognition from the ITSPA judges and an independent testing panel demonstrates the strength of our Internet telephony solutions, for businesses and consumers alike".
Eli Katz, Chair of the ITSPA council, said, "The ITSPA Awards celebrate the innovation and best practice in our industry. This year saw the highest number of entries we have received so far".

Internet Telephony is the ability to make voice calls over any Internet Protocol (IP) connection, particularly broadband, using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). IP Communications also enable a rich multi-media set of advanced services, including Video, High Definition Sound, Instant Messaging and Presence. Internet Telephony Service Providers (ITSPs) can provide regular and enhanced phone line services – often at substantial cost reductions.
Internet Telephony Services Providers’ Association (ITSPA) is the UK’s industry body for Internet Telephony Service Providers. Founded in 2004, it has over 60 members, ranging from the largest Tier one operators to the new entrants, providing services to millions of consumers and businesses. Given the rise in ITSPs (Internet Telephony Service Providers) it was deemed appropriate to form a representative body for the industry in order to both represent industry views to Government and also to implement methods of best practices.
