Sheffield, United Kingdom (PRWEB) March 12, 2014
ITSPA (The Internet Telephony Services Providers’ Association), the voice of the UK VoIP industry, held its annual awards ceremony in the Altitude events space within the Millbank Tower the past week in London. The awards were hosted by Dr Julian Huppert MP, Vice Chair of the Parliamentary Internet Communications and Technology Forum and were presented in eight categories. Localphone was announced the proud winners of the Best Consumer VoIP Award beating Orbtalk and Voiptalk to the title.
All entrants had to submit a written case study and self-assessment, which were independently reviewed by the ITSPA Awards judges and Malden Electronics conducted two months of technical testing for three of the categories, including Best Consumer VoIP. Full details of the awards can be found at http://www.itspaawards.org.uk.
Paul Cusack, CEO and founder of Localphone, said, "It is a great honour to receive the ITSPA 2014 Award for Best Consumer VoIP for the second year in a row. I am extremely proud of this achievement and recognition. It wouldn’t have been possible without all the Localphone employees who have worked so hard to make our service world class, so I’d like to offer my personal appreciation to them. We have lots of exciting plans and product development scheduled in for 2014 and we look forward to announcing these to the public in the coming months as well as entering more categories at the ITSPA Awards next year."
