LONDON – Thursday 22nd March 2012 – Telappliant, the leading Internet telephony provider for consumers and UK based small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs), has announced it has won the ‘Best Consumer VoIP’ award for its VoIPtalk Service at the Internet Telephony Services Providers’ Association (ITSPA) 4th annual awards. The ceremony took place on Wednesday 21st March in the House of Commons Members Dining Room, and was hosted by Dr Julian Huppert MP and Vice Chair of the Parliamentary Internet Communications and Technology Forum. Telappliant was also recognised as a strong finalist in the ‘Best Business ITSP (Micro)’ category.
According to the latest Ofcom communications market report for 2011, one in five (18 per cent) of households are now making regular VoIP calls. The ITSPA awards for Best Consumer VoIP assessed a number of solutions available on the market and reviewed factors such as value for money, technical features of the product and customer care.
Tan Aksoy, Chief Executive Officer at Telappliant, commented, “We are thrilled to have won the award for best consumer VoIP. The combined recognition from the ITSPA judges and an independent technical testing panel demonstrates that our VoIP network is best-of-class. There is no doubt that more individuals and small businesses are turning to Voice over IP telephony. It’s estimated that, within the next ten years, 90 per cent of telephone calls worldwide will be made using VoIP, but there is no reason why customers should not begin taking advantage of this technology today.”
Internet Telephony is the ability to make voice calls over any Internet Protocol (IP) connection, particularly broadband, using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). IP Communications also enable a rich multi-media set of advanced services, including Video, High Definition Sound, Instant Messaging and Presence. Internet Telephony Service Providers can provide regular and enhanced phone line services – often at substantial cost reductions.
