2022 Global Telecom Awards winners revealed


The Glotel Awards were back as a live, physical, event this year and the winners represented a great cross section of an industry going from strength to strength.

For reasons that will be obvious, we weren’t able to get loads of telecoms professionals in a big room for the past two years. Now that, in the UK at least, that whole strange period is behind us, it was great to be able to get together just like we did in the good old days. Some things just aren’t the same over Zoom.

No single company dominated the awards this year, with a gratifyingly broad spread of winners in terms of company size and geography. Korea’s KT won the Best Operator award, and big kit vendors Huawei and Ericsson both did well too, but there are plenty of more niche players represented too. Cheesy though it is to say so, the big winner was the telecoms industry on the whole, which finally got the chance to celebrate its achievements in person at a great night out in central London.

Here’s the full list of winners and highly commended entries from this year’s awards. We congratulate them all for their considerable achievement.
