Virtual1 continued on the industry award winning trail, with a very satisfying and prestigious win at the Comms National Awards event. In a tough category, Virtual1 came out on top in the first award of the evening in direct competition with the likes of BT Wholesale, Gamma and Metronet, to scoop the ‘Network Provider of the Year’ award. The award recognises fixed line operators that have helped resellers grow their businesses via the provision of resilient network solutions.

Virtual1 has supported its Partners through the transition from voice to solution sales requiring data and cloud. Partners benefit from the in-house knowledge at Virtual1 to develop their opportunities, close deals and win business.

This is the first time that Virtual1 has won this award, which made the win that much more satisfying, but they weren’t done yet. Later in the evening they also scooped ‘Highly Commended’ in the even more competitive category of ‘Best Wholesale Service Provider (above 10m Turnover)’.

Tom O’Hagan, CEO of Virtual1, commented, “Virtual1 is still very much a young company, but our rapid growth now sees us ‘crossing swords’ with the heavyweights of the industry, so this award, and the ‘Highly Commended’ are very satisfying and a vindication of the decisions we have made to grow the company. This growth is organic, fuelled by our success in the marketplace, which is built on delivering innovative products combined with the highest level of customer service and a strategy that remains solely wholesale.”

Tom’s very proud of his team, “This award wouldn’t have been possible without the support and dedication of a great team who continually rise to the development, sales and service challenges that we throw at them.”
