Six New ISPs Join the UK Internet Services Providers Association ISPA

Wednesday, Jul 18th, 2012 (3:00 am) - Score 1,893

The UK Internet Services Providers Association (ISPA) has confirmed that six new internet and telecoms providers have joined its ranks since last month when nine others joined, which is perhaps partly a reflection of the seemingly anti-ISP stance that increasingly appears to emanate from the government.

All new members must agree to abide by the ISPA’s Code of Practice, which is designed to encourage good business practice and often also provides for an additional avenue of complaint when consumers find a provider to be in breach. Members also gain free CISAS membership (Ofcom approved ADR complaints handler).

The New ISP Members (June-July 2012)
* Metronet UK
* Xifos Limited
* Sparta Telecom
* Onwave UK Limited
* LN Communications Ltd
* Rural Communications Solutions Limited

The new additions should hopefully help to give the ISPA a little bit of extra clout when tackling the government over some of the industry’s most pressing needs and concerns, of which there are quite a few (e.g. data retention/snooping, internet piracy rules, net neutrality etc.).
