Boston, MA – July 20th, 2022, Leading research consultancy and market diligence firm ATLANTIC-ACM delivered its 2022 Global Wholesale Service Provider Excellence Awards on Wednesday, July 20th. The awards are based on ratings from 350+ unique wholesale buyers who provided over 1,300 carrier specific evaluations of service level and product quality for their current providers.
ATLANTIC-ACM introduced the Global Wholesale Report Card survey in 2000 to offer wholesale providers competitive customer experience benchmarking data along with insights on shifting purchase dynamics and buying priorities.
Network Performance remains the primary consideration for global wholesale customers when buying services, followed by Network Security, Price, and Customer Service. Respondents indicated a continued trend of increased wireless adoption and a heavy focus on core data connectivity and last mile data access. 5G Connectivity, DDoS Mitigation, Neutral Colocation, and Cloud Direct Connect fuel buyer demand for additional services.
