More than 40 companies have been nominated over 12 categories, such as Best New ISP and the new Customer Choice Award, with the winners being decided by an independent panel of ISPA judges at a ceremony in London on July 3rd.
We will be fighting it out with Adepteo, iNet Telecoms, KC Business, Orbis Telecom and Telappliant to be named the UK’s best business VoIP provider. All Best Business Telephony entrants underwent two months of rigorous testing by ISPA’s technical testing partner Malden Electronics.

The nomination adds to the recognition we have received over the past few years, with Deloitte, The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), Federation of Communication Services (FCS) and Comms Business all recognising our successes.
And ISPA isn’t the only industry association to consistently rank Gradwell highly, with the ITSPA awards having our name present every year since 2009.
Wish us good luck for July 3rd!
Gradwell is set to defend the title of Best Internet Telephony provider in the upcoming ISPA awards.
After winning the prestigious title in 2010, Gradwell has been reselected as one of the top providers in the UK in the 13th annual award show. The winners will be announced in an award ceremony hosted in London on July the 7th.
The nomination highlights the quality of service that Gradwell provides, with selection criteria relying heavily on a rigorous technical testing phase. Malden Electronics, ISPA’s voice testing partner, tested the call quality of all award entrants over the course of two months. They assessed entrants on criteria that included background noise, call set up time and audio quality. In addition, the independent ISPA judges then considered areas such as price and value for money, free access to other VoIP networks and value added services.
The nomination comes after last year’s triumph, and further industry accolades. Commercial Director Barrie Millett said, “To be nominated again, is a fantastic achievement and a reflection of the hard work and effort put in by Gradwell staff”.
Gradwell provides tailored communications solutions to small businesses throughout the UK, including internet telephony, broadband, web hosting and email management. The company has enjoyed considerable success since it was founded in 1998, winning numerous industry awards throughout such as the recent the “Most Innovative VoIP Product” in the ITSPA 2011 awards.
The awards, hosted by the Internet Telephony Service Providers Association, reflect the different services provided by the VoIP industry.
Gradwell Mobile, launched in September last year, offers businesses a landline on the move. The service beat off competition from the likes of Vonage and Digium to claim the Most Innovative VoIP Product prize, with ITSPA commenting on its reliability, user-friendly approach and groundbreaking features.
Gradwell was also highly commended in the Best Business ITSP (SME) category, which evaluated the reliability, value for money and customer service of the VoIP service on offer.
Dr Peter Gradwell, Managing Director of Gradwell said, “We’re delighted the results of tonight, with one award and one commendation. We have now been listed as one of the UK’s top VoIP providers for three consecutive years now, and having the most innovative VoIP product in our portfolio really cements our place as a market leader.
To have been recognised by the ITSPA awards over the last three years reflects our consistent hard work to build on our past successes and continue providing a communications backbone for UK small businesses.”
