VoIP Providers Honoured in Parliament at ITSPA Awards

The success stories of the VoIP industry were announced in Parliament today at the 2nd annual ITSPA Awards. The ceremony was attended by over a hundred people including parliamentarians, civil servants and industry representatives. It took place in the Strangers Dining Room of the House of Commons and was hosted by Andrew Miller MP. The awards were presented in 5 categories, representing different areas of the VoIP and Unified Communications industry.

The Award Winners were:

  • Best Consumer VoIP – Vonage V-Plan 4i
  • Best Business ITSP (SMEs) – iNet Telecoms (Voipfone)
  • Best Business ITSP (Large Enterprise) – ntl:Telewest Business

This year, technical testing by Epitiro was introduced for two of the categories - Best Consumer VoIP and Best Business ITSP (SME). Entrants for all categories also had to complete written entry forms that were independently reviewed by the ITSPA Awards judges.

Eli Katz, ITSPA Chairman, said, “I would like to congratulate the 2009 ITSPA Awards winners and finalists. It has been excellent to follow on from the inaugural awards last year with an equally competitive nomination process in 2009. Despite the tough economic conditions, residential and business customers are increasingly becoming more aware of the opportunities that IP based Communications Services can offer                
including cost, flexibility and new multi-media services. The testing regime again showed that VoIP can rival the PSTN for voice quality and reliability”.

Linus Surguy, Technical Director of Magrathea, said, “Magrathea is proud to again be associated with the ITSPA Awards and would like to congratulate all the winners this year. It has been encouraging to see such wide participation from so many companies, indicating the competitive nature of the VoIP market. It is important that we recognise the success stories of the industry and we hope this will continue”.

Iain Wood, Head of Marketing from Epitiro, said, “We welcomed the challenge of testing some of the award categories and were impressed with the quality and reliability of all the entrants. We look forward to developing this process further in the future and testing more of the award categories next year.”

The 2009 ITSPA Awards were open to all those in the VoIP space, including those who were not members of ITSPA. For more information on ITSPA or the awards please go to http://www.itspaawards.org.uk or http://www.itspa.org.uk
