Itï¿½s not often we get the chance to let our readers get involved in the process of publishing this magazine, but now, for the first time ever, our readers can help us choose from among the hundreds of VoIP service providers, and help us decide who is the best at what they do.
INTERNET TELEPHONYï¿½ Magazine, in conjunction with TMCnet.com, is reaching out to you ï¿½ our readers ï¿½ to help us select the best of the best VoIP/IP Telephony Service Providers. This gives you the chance to decide whoï¿½s making the grade, and grants you the opportunity to reward your favorite service providers!
Weï¿½re asking you to nominate the best Service Providers in over 20 different categories, including:
ï¿½ Best Overall
ï¿½ Best New VoIP Provider (12 months on the market or less)
ï¿½ Best Enhanced Services
ï¿½ Best SMB Service
ï¿½ Most Innovative, and more.
To nominate a company for this honor, weï¿½re asking you to submit your favorite Service Providerï¿½s name and Web site, along with the category you wish to nominate them in, and send it via e-mail to [email protected]. Please include comments as to why you think your choice deserves to win in their particular category.
Also include your name and place of residence (City/State/Country).
Deadline for nominations is September 15. Go to www.tmcnet.com/awards/spa/ for more information, including a complete list of categories in which you can nominate your favorites.
The results will be announced at the annual Service Provider Awards dinner to be held in Los Angeles, CA on October 26th, 2005. We will publish the award winners in a future issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine and online at www.tmcnet.com after the winners are announced.
Be a part of the first-ever reader-nominated service provider awards. Donï¿½t miss your chance to determine who wins this coveted prize!
Iï¿½m curious also to see how some of the better known service providers fare in our contest, especially in light of the recent news from Keynote Systems and their first-of-its-kind VoIP quality study. Vonage emerged as the most reliable provider and AT&Tï¿½s CallVantage service claimed top honors insofar as voice quality was concerned.
More information regarding the report can be found at the Keynote Systems Web site, www.keynote.com.
