Last night at a glittering awards ceremony in London, leading pan-African telecoms group Liquid Telecom, a subsidiary of Econet Global, was named Best Operator in an Emerging Market at the prestigious World Communications Awards.

Now in its 19th year, the World Communications Awards is one of the largest awards ceremonies in global telecoms. It is organised by Terrapin and judged by an international and independent panel of telecoms experts.

The Best Operator in an Emerging Market award is given to the operator that is considered to have “best adapted to emerging market characteristics and overcome challenges to achieve commercial success and improve the lives of customers”.

Other winners last night included Orange, NTT, Ooredoo and Telia Carrier.

In November, Liquid Telecom was also named Wholesale Service Provider of the Year for Middle East and Africa at the 2017 MEF Awards and Best African Wholesale Carrier at the annual Global Carrier Awards for the sixth consecutive year.
