I was pleasantly surprised with the news we received from CircleID that we passed 1 million views last year on their leading collaborative news and opinion website where professionals come to connect, inform and be informed about the latest developments that are shaping the world of telecommunications and in particular the internet.
Furthermore we reached the top 2nd position on this site and also very pleased to see that our senior analyst Henry Lancaster also made it to the list.
