African categories shortlist for Global Carrier Awards 2015 announced

08 September 2015 |


The shortlist for the Best African Wholesale Carrier and Best African project for the 2015 Global Carrier Awards have been announced.

Last year’s winner of Best African Wholesale Carrier, Liquid Telecom, finds itself on both shortlists, and the operator will be hoping to cap another fine year as it continues to build the region’s largest single fibre network.

Subsea cable operator WIOCC also makes both shortlists, after opening PoPs in Zambia and upgrading capacity on the system.

New entrants to this year’s African categories include Sudanese operator Sudatel and Emerging Markets Communications.
