The Editor-in-Chief and Chief Executive Officer of Communications Week Media, organizers of the annual Beacon of ICT Awards, Mr. Ken Nwogbo, has identified the consistency of Globacom in pioneering most of the game-changing innovations in the telecommunications industry over the years as the chief reason for adjudging the company as the winner of the Most Innovative Mobile Player of the Year.
The media executive explained that winners in the various categories were decided by readers of Communications Week in an online poll conducted by the magazine from November last year to March 15, 2018.
Mr. Nwogbo declared that “Glo has remained consistent in pioneering most of the innovations we have in the telecoms industry today, both in voice and in data services. Glo Café, Borrow me Data, Campus Booster, E-top Up and Easy Share are among the recent products which have offered unparalleled experience for telecom subscribers on the Glo network. Many of the respondents who took part in the poll said this was why they voted for Glo as the Most Innovative Mobile Player”.
The Beacon of ICT Awards was instituted to reward the vision and enterprise of individuals and companies that have contributed to the growth of the ICT industry in a particular year. The main objectives of the awards are to evaluate and recognize standards of excellence in the country’s quest for growth and development in the use of ICT and to ensure that ICT professionals are provided a yardstick for recognizing and validating outstanding contributions.
