Onecom has been given one of Vodafone UK’s highest B2B partner accolades for the seventh year running.

The company was presented with the Vodafone Total Communications Partner 2017 award – the most prestigious award  at the Vodafone Partner of the Year Awards, held in Manchester on Wednesday (July 5th).

The award is contested by all of Vodafone’s total communications partners, and the winner is chosen using a number of criteria including accreditations achieved, revenue growth, customer churn and performance.

Judges also consider how each company’s training and market benefits have been used by partners to deliver results and help UK businesses make the best use of technology.

Darren Ridge, Onecom CEO, said: “We are delighted to once again accept this award, which recognises both the quality of our relationship with Vodafone and our commitment to offering their industry-leading total communications solutions backed by outstanding customer service.

“This honour reflects the dedication and hard work of Onecom’s staff, whose focus on putting the customer first is at the heart of our success.”

Onecom is Vodafone’s largest partner in its UK Partner Programme and has held the network’s top award, previously known as Platinum Partner of the Year, since it was first issued in 2011.

The award was renamed Total Communications Partner in 2015 to take into account the full range of communications solutions including mobile and fixed voice lines, broadband and IT services.

Helen Freestone, Director of UK Partnerships & Alliances for Vodafone, said: “This is a well-deserved win for Onecom, who are a key partner for Vodafone in our established Partner Programme, consistently demonstrating that they are at the forefront of business communications solutions across the UK.”

The Vodafone accolade comes after a string of awards successes for the company this year. Onecom won Customer Service Team of the Year in the 2017 Comms Business Awards, and was was also named Unified Communications Dealer of the Year at the Mobile Industry Awards.


Onecom is the UK’s largest independent business telecommunications provider, operating throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland from 12 regional offices, including London, Cardiff, Southampton, Plymouth, Leeds, Telford, Norwich and Brighton.

The company manages over 325,000 mobile connections, delivering communication services and unified solutions across fixed line voice, connectivity and cloud computing to some of the UK’s most dynamic companies.
