MetTel’s Managed Network Services Named a 2x Leader

When it comes to all-stars, MetTel is once again outshining major IT communications players like AT&T, Verizon, and Lumen. For the second consecutive year, MetTel was named a Leader in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Network Services. The only US-based company to receive this distinction, MetTel again firmly secured its spot in the Leaders Quadrant for “Completeness of Vision” and ability to execute. Being a two-time leader in a Gartner Magic Quadrant is more than a title—it’s a reflection of the trust our clients put in us to deliver the solutions and teams that solve some of the most complex IT communications challenges.
