Liquid Telecom picked up awards in three categories at the just concluded Capacity Africa Awards ceremony held during the annual Capacity Africa conference in Kampala, Uganda.

The Capacity Africa awards celebrate excellence and innovation within wholesale telecoms across the African continent and recognises the industry’s pioneers and innovators.

Liquid Telecom picked up awards in three categories. They included:

  • Best Terrestrial Rural Connectivity Project for its ongoing work to Connect The Unconnected across Africa.
  • Best infrastructure Sharing initiative for building new national long distance routes in South Africa.
  • Best African Wholesale Carrier. This recognises Liquid Telecom’s continued investment in – and expansion – of its wholesale business.

Glenn Maule, Head of Wholesale Sales, who received the awards said “To win in three categories is really something special and recognises the hard work and dedication of the entire Liquid Telecom team. Everything we do is driven by a simple yet powerful belief that everyone in Africa has the right to be connected. Over the last decade, this vision has helped us change the face of communications in Africa.”

Nelson Mandela once said: “A critical, independent, and investigative press is the lifeblood of any democracy. The press must be free from state interference. It must have the economic strength to stand up to the blandishments of government officials. It must have sufficient independence from vested interests to be bold and inquiring without fear or favor. It must enjoy the protection of the constitution, so that it can protect our rights as citizens.”
