Outstanding telco firms lauded in Asian Telecom Awards 2022

Winning companies were recognised via digital presentations throughout March 2022.

No organisation was left untouched by the events of the past two years, pushing the demand for innovation in the area of telecommunications to extraordinary heights. Organisations were driven to develop and launch new features and plan to keep serving consumers and stay competitive.

To recognise these extraordinary organisations in the Asia Pacific that showed resilience and outstanding performance, the Asian Telecom Awards 2022 honoured these companies who were able to navigate their way despite various challenges in the market whilst providing relevant and award-winning products and services to their clients. 

Tracing its heritage from Asian Mobile News which started in 2003, the awards programme aims to honour top telco companies that pioneered ground-breaking products and solutions in the past year. Telco companies were invited to nominate their organisations in the following categories: Carrier, Customer Initiative, Technology Initiative, Operations, Executive/CEO of the Year.

The awards will be handed via digital presentations to the winners on the second and third week of March. Candidates were given the chance to share their journey via interviews and article features on the Asian Business Review website, social media, and other online platforms. 

Industry leaders were invited to judge the entries and select winners. Comprising the awards’ elite panel of judges were Darren Yong, Head of Technology, Media and Telecommunications and Head of Clients & Markets Development at KPMG Asia Pacific; Joongshik Wang, EY-Parthenon Asean Leader and EY Asean Technology, Media & Entertainment and Telecommunications Sector Market Segment Leader at EY; Wilson Chow, Global Technology, Media and Telecommunications Industry Leader at PwC China; Michinori Sato, Asia Pacific Telecom, Media, and Entertainment Sector Leader at Deloitte.
