Liquid Telecom wins MEF award for Best Wholesale Service Provider in Middle East and Africa
Orlando, November 15, 2017
Leading pan-African telecoms group Liquid Telecom, a subsidiary of Econet Global, was last night selected as Wholesale Service Provider of the Year for Middle East and Africa at the 2017 MEF Awards.
Now in its 12th year, the MEF Awards recognises service, application, technology, and professional excellence amongst the global carrier community. MEF is an industry association with over 210 member companies that is enabling service providers to create a global ecosystem of networks, which will deliver on-demand services for the digital economy and hyper-connected world.
Liquid Telecom is a key proponent of new and emerging network technologies in Africa, and in 2015, became the first pan-African fibre operator to receive MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certification.
“The MEF plays an important role in helping service providers prepare for the network technologies of tomorrow,” said Ben Roberts, Group CTIO, Liquid Telecom. “We are delighted to be recognised as Best Service Provider in Middle East and Africa by the MEF as we continue to develop networks that can support the growing demand for bandwidth across Africa.”
Earlier in November, Liquid Telecom was also named Best African Wholesale Carrier at the annual Global Carrier Awards for the sixth consecutive year.
