Abuja - Globacom, the region’s major telecommunications operator, said it been awarded as the Broadband Backbone Provider awards at the 2014 African Information and Communications Technology Awards (AFRICTA).

The event has been held at the Eko Hotel and Suites Lagos.

Globacom’s infrastructure and its enterprising role was cited as bringing to West Africa a more flexible and efficient work environment with guaranteed connectivity anywhere, anytime as had never been experienced before.

The leading telecommunications firm was singled out for further praise for its promotion of the entertainment industry, sports and sponsorship of cultural festivals across the Nigerian ethnic terrain, hence Globacom was rated the most subscriber-friendly operator.

“It is beyond any doubt that Globacom may have spent more than any other network in the African continent to support the customer on its network and it is fast becoming a subject of study on how a business can remain n profitable while caring so much for customers,” organisers of the awards said.

AFRICTA is one of Nigeria’s most respected telecoms industry awards.

The IT and Telecoms Digest organise the awards as an integral part of the annual West African Information Communications Technology (WAFICIT) Conference.
