Digital operator, West Indian Ocean Cable Company, has emerged as the Telecom Wholesale Provider of the Year in the 2022 Tech Innovation Awards in Nigeria.
WIOCC Nigeria won the award for its outstanding leadership in providing wholesale services to cloud operators, content providers, and fixed and mobile telcos.
Formerly known as the Nigeria Tech Innovation & Telecom Awards (NTITA), the coveted Tech Innovation Awards are Nigeria’s foremost technology sector awards and are seen as the ‘Oscars’ of the technology industry.
Commenting on winning this award, WIOCC Nigeria’s Business Development Director, Slawek Cieslinski, said, “This award reaffirms WIOCC’s position as the leading player in the deployment of carrier-scale, future-proofed infrastructure into Africa.
“We have the flexibility and scale to meet the ever-growing demand for reliable, high-speed connectivity throughout Africa. In Nigeria specifically, we operate a resilient, hyperscale network that connects our in-county wholesale clients to the global internet and extends international organisations’ network reach into the country.
“Looking forward, our strategic investments in the new hyperscale Equiano and 2Africa subsea cables that land in Nigeria, and in the ongoing deployment of a future-proof national network across Nigeria will enable us to offer even greater support to clients in Nigeria.”
The awards event is organised by InstinctWave, publishers of Techberg magazine, in partnership with the Africa Digital Economy Forum.
