Telkom was today named fixed broadband service provider and mobile broadband
operator for 2014 at the annual My Broadband Conference.
This is an inspiring achievement, but it gets even better: it is the fourth
consecutive year that we have been recognized as the best fixed broadband
service provider in SA – an outstanding track record!
COO Brian Armstrong, who received the award, said, "We are delighted to
receive such a strong endorsement from a leading media house. Telkom is
committed to continually improving our services and delivering the best
value to our customers. We're very pleased to be the first operator to
commercially launch LTE Advanced services in South Africa, and the first
operator to trial a GPON-based FTTH offering up to 100Mbps to the mass
market. This further enhances our value proposition."
Telkom also received the award for best mobile broadband operator for
the third consecutive year. Managing Executive: Network Transformation
and Planning, Amith Maharaj, was present to receive the award and said,
"Telkom's mobile team has worked incredibly hard over the past three years
to continually deliver innovation. We're honoured by the award and will
continue to work just as hard in the year ahead."
Congratulations and well done to everyone who have worked so diligently
to steer Telkom towards this well-deserved recognition.
