Some had questions, while others made bets if Liquid Telecom was going to make it for the sixth consecutive year…well, guess what, it did, and congratulations to Liquid Telecom.

Liquid Telecom, a subsidiary of Econet Global, is Africa’s leading independent data, voice and IP provider committed to building Africa’s digital future. It supplies fibre optic, satellite and international carrier services to Africa’s largest mobile network operators, ISPs and businesses of all sizes.

Liquid has once again been named as Best African Wholesale Carrier at the annual Global Carrier Awards for the sixth consecutive year. Liquid Telecom has been recognized for its outstanding achievements in the African wholesale telecoms sector, which it serves through the largest independent pan-African fibre network.

The event was held in London. The Global Carrier Awards celebrate excellence and innovation within wholesale telecoms, recognizing the leading companies, projects and partnerships in today’s dynamic market.

The award marks a busy and successful year for Liquid Telecom, which has continued to invest in new services while at the same time expanding its fibre network footprint that now stretches over 50,000km and connects more African countries on a single network than any other.

Nic Rudnick, Group CEO at Liquid Telecom commenting after scooping the Best African Wholesale Carrier award:

“To be recognized as Best African Wholesale Carrier six years in a row is an amazing achievement and I would like to thank everyone at Liquid Telecom who contributed to this success. We will continue to further invest in our network and services, providing more people and businesses with access to fast and reliable connectivity in Africa.”
