It’s that time of year when even Brexit and the Ashes pale into insignificance compared to the unveiling of the Global Telecoms Awards shortlist.
There were a record number of entrants this year, resulting in a record number of shortlisted entries. The incredibly diverse range of participants, products and projects illustrates what a vibrant industry telecoms is at it embarks on the 5G era. In acknowledgement of that new awards were created, not just for 5G but AI, digital transformation and IoT, as well as an opportunity to crown the operator of the year for the first time.
“Over a hundred entries were shortlisted across 21 categories this year, which is great to see,” said Scott Bicheno, Editor of Telecoms.com. “The start of the 5G era has presumably contributed to this increased desire for industry recognition and the great response we received shows the new categories hit the mark. As ever I’m really looking forward to hosting the awards evening later this year, which looks set to be a top night.”
