The Internet Telephony Services Providers’ Association (ITSPA), a UK trade body for the Voice-over-IP (VoIP) industry, have announced the winners of its 4th annual 2012 ITSPA Awards. During the ceremony Voiptalk was named as Best Consumer VoIP provider.

The reception took place yesterday in the House of Commons (Parliament) members dining room and was hosted by Dr Julian Huppert MP, Vice Chair of the Parliamentary Internet Communications and Technology Forum.

Eli Katz, ITSPA Chairman, said:

Congratulations to all the winners, those companies highly commended as well as the finalists. I’m pleased that we have expanded the award categories this year, which have been well received by the entrants.

Entrants in these categories underwent two months of technical testing. Separately, entrants to all categories had to complete a written self-assessment, which were independently reviewed by the ITSPA Awards judges. The ITSPA Members’ Pick was a selected shortlist from the membership, outlining companies and services who they believed had provided “real value to the industry in recent years“.
