TeliaSonera International Carrier walked away with the best performing Internet Service Provider award at last night’s prestigious eco Gala and Awards 2011. The company was victorious for its excellent IP transit product solution and enhanced services.
TeliaSonera International Carrier runs the largest IP network in Europe with international coverage and operates as a global provider of cross-border network access, communications services and is a leading contributor and distributor of high quality video for TV, online and IPTV services. The prize for the ISP award is given to companies offering the best price-service relation for the target group. The awards criteria also includes the service provider’s ability to customise its service offerings; in terms of pricing, tariffs and contract terms, time for installation, service availability and support functions, as well as integrated and optional security services. On the IP network side, a connection to DE-CIX and connectivity on an international basis are important qualifiers.
Erik Hallberg, President of TeliaSonera International Carrier, says “For TeliaSonera International Carrier this is an outstanding achievement. Remaining at the cutting edge of technology and always delivering high quality is our core philosophy. This is the first time in Germany we’ve received such valuable recognition for our IP network performance.”
Held annually since 2000, the eco Gala and Awards took place last night in Cologne and brought together over 300 guests from the German internet and telecommunications industry, with thirty companies nominated across ten categories. The event recognises innovation and achievements in the internet business and celebrates those who are shaping the future for the rest of the industry. The selection of the best provider in each category was based on the criteria of the eco organisation, and judged by a jury composed of experts from the fields of economy, sciences and journalism.
Harald A. Summa, Managing Director of the eco organization, commented last night “eco is the organization of the German internet economy with an impressive impact on the industry and market. Therefore our award for the best ISP is very important. The internet would not be what it is like today without TeliaSonera International Carrier network’s valuable contribution regarding global coverage, it provides a huge transport volume with high performance.”
