ISPA Announce Finalists for its 2014 UK ISP Internet Industry Awards

Thursday, May 8th, 2014 (3:52 pm) - Score 729

The UK Internet Service Providers Association (ISPA) has today revealed the official shortlist of finalists for its forthcoming 16th annual 2014 Internet industry awards, which has seen broadband providers including Hyperoptic, Sky Broadband and PlusNet gaining nominations across several consumer focused categories.

This year two new categories have joined the list including Best Business Use of Cloud (this judges firms that use cloud technology to become more efficient) and the Best Use of Digital (aimed at ISPs or technology providers that run the best digital media campaign).

On top of that there’s also the usual mix of Best Superfast Broadband and Best Consumer Fixed Broadband categories etc.

Nicholas Lansman, ISPAs Secretary General, said:

Congratulations to all those shortlisted for the 2014 ISPAs which again shows the real strength and diversity of the UK internet sector, which underpins the whole economy. The new categories reflect the massive rise in cloud and digital services in the last year, and it’s great to reward those who have innovated in these areas. Best of luck to all those nominated, and I look forward to the ceremony in July.”

It should be noted that the shortlist for the Internet Hero and Internet Villain gongs tend to follow later in a separate update and won’t be announced today.

It’s interesting to note that Keycom is listed under the Consumer Fixed Broadband category because you can’t actually order a broadband package via their website, although they are working with various operators like CityFibre and Vision Fibre Media to roll-out superfast broadband solutions (often using fibre optic connectivity). The winners will be unveiled at an awards ceremony on 10th July in London (Park Lane Hotel).
