Proving that the company is a leader in the conduct of its business, Guyana Telephone and Telegraph, last Wednesday, walked away with two of the most prestigious awards of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce 2017. Those awards were Large Business of the Year and Corporate Citizenship.The awardees are selected based on a company’s demonstration of leadership in strategic initiatives in the areas of customer satisfaction, financial growth, internal processes improvement, employee relations development and fulfilling their corporate social responsibility.
During 2017, GTT continued to improve and expand its infrastructure to better serve the Guyanese people. Among some of the initiatives for which the company was awarded Business of the Year were the launch of Blaze high speed internet via fibre to the home, providing up to 50Mbps speed, a major expansion project targeted to Georgetown and several outlying areas.
Further geographical expansions are slated for the next two plus years with and overall investment of US$3Million.
Another initiative was the deployment of LTE on the Essequibo Coast which saw the delivery of a stable enhanced fixed broadband service to an area that was challenged for high speed connectivity. This is the first service of its kind introduced to the people of Essequibo at an investment cost of US$3 Million.
There was, too, the establishment of communications solutions to Troy Resources at Karouni, in Region Seven, allowing for the operators at the location to communicate with the rest of the world for its day to day operations.
The award for Corporate Citizenship was won for the innovative Pinktober programme which raised awareness and funds for the fight against Cancer in Guyana.
Through its Pinktober programme the company raised over $ 4million for the Guyana Cancer Foundation to effectively continue its work to spread awareness and screening.
The provision of communication infrastructure to support the Guyana Police Force 911 Call Centre initiative which was launched in November and the partnering with the Office of the Prime Minister and NCN to use GTT’s infrastructure free of cost to turn up radio stations in Bartica and Orealla were also activities for which the company was recognised.
“GTT is humbled and thrilled to have won the awards and will stop at nothing to ensure that we improve the lives of the people of Guyana by providing the most reliable, fastest and trustworthy services across Guyana,” said GTT’s CEO, Mr. Justin Nedd.
He also highlighted that GTT will continue in its role as lead Corporate Citizen with even more initiatives in 2018.
