The Internet Telephony Services Providers’ Association (ITSPA), which acts as a trade body for the United Kingdom’s VoIP industry, has today unveiled the winners of their 6th annual 2014 ITSPA Awards. Once again Localphone picked up the gong for Best Consumer VoIP provider.

This year the ceremony took place at the Altitude events space within the Millbank Tower, central London and was hosted by Dr Julian Huppert MP, Vice Chair of the Parliamentary Internet Communications and Technology Forum.

One other particularly notable winner on the night was the free WebRTC service, which scooped the ITSPA Members’ Pick award for their open project that enables web browsers with Real-Time Communications (RTC) capabilities via simple JavaScript APIs and HTML5.

Eli Katz, ITSPA Chairman, said:

Congratulations to all the winners and to those companies highly commended. The success of the awards is a reflection of the efforts of ITSPA and its work continues at pace! We have a number of live initiatives around various issues including net neutrality, nuisance calls, provisioning and VoIP security. All our work is geared to promoting our industry and ensuring our members are fully kept up to speed on both threats, opportunities and new developments.

This industry is certainly maturing and we welcome all VoIP companies to join ITSPA, help add their expertise and enjoy the benefits from being part of the industry association.”

    Telappliant is a decent VoIP company, been using them since 2007. They have a silver package of 1,000 outgoing minutes to UK, Europe, USA, Canada and Australia, a geographical incoming number and it can be routed through to either a SIP phone, iPhone or Android for £6 a month (data allowance would be used though). Their support is good too, I called up and got straight through to the agent who I was conversing through their online helpdesk. I recommend them if you are looking for a good VoIP service.

      BTW, it’s through their sister site VoIPTalk.org.
