Virgin Mobile Middle East & Africa has been named the Telecom Group of the Year at this year’s CommsMEA Awards.

Judges praised the mobile provider for its championing of innovative technology and apps, consistently excellent customer service and outstanding growth. Virgin Mobile Middle East & Africa now serves more than 3.3 million customers across its markets.

 “It is an honour to be acknowledged by this year’s CommsMEA Awards. At Virgin Mobile, we are constantly looking to challenge the status quo and putting control into the hands of our customers,” Erik Dudman Nielsen, founder and acting group CEO of Virgin Mobile MEA. “We are being purposefully different to other telco’s because we aspire to redefine a new normal in the industry and take a leading role in the digital transformation of the industry. The future of the telecommunications industry is about being current to the needs of consumers and it is fantastic to have this trail-blazing spirit recognized by our peers and industry leaders.”

Virgin Mobile MEA was recognised for its outstanding contribution to telecommunications in the region both through its ground-breaking Virgin Mobile offering in the UAE and for its market-leading FRiENDi Mobile brand in Oman.
