About this Award

25 years ago, no one could comprehend the power of the mobile phone and the true power of connectivity.

Not just in processing speed, power and size, like the fact that the processing power of the Computer that placed humankind on the moon (the Apollo Guidance Computer) is now equivalent to a pair of Nintendo consoles! But how the mobile phone has changed people and our relationship with one another.

The 25 Years of Connecting People Award, introduced in 2020 to honor 25 Years of the Global Mobile Awards, recognizes the early pioneer, on whose shoulders the digital industry now stands on.
This discretionary award is a personal honour for the recipient who is chosen by the Global Mobile Award 2020 Judges and verified by the GSMA Board.

The category is NOT open for entry.
