Videsh Sanchar Nigam (VSNL) has announced that the company was presented with the ATLANTIC-ACM global wholesale best-in-class data price award at the 4th annual global wholesale carrier excellence awards.

The awards, which were held during the 30th annual pacific telecommunications council (PTC) show in Honolulu, Hawaii, rank all viable carriers on a variety of service and product categories. Winners are derived from hundreds of wholesale customer valuations of global carriers for the 2008 edition of ATLANTIC-ACM’s global wholesale carrier report card — the global wholesale industry’s principal benchmarking study.

The awards are based on scores provided by customers in an online survey, open to participation from mid-November through December of 2007. VSNL’s award win was based on the following data products: transport (including Ethernet and wavelengths), ATM / frame and IP.
