Broadband ISPs Shortlisted for the Connected Britain Awards 2018

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018 (11:14 am) - Score 1,435

Various broadband ISPs and UK fibre optic deployment projects have today been shortlisted as potential winners for the inaugural Connected Britain Awards 2018 (Total Telecom), which forms part of an annual conference that will discuss future telecoms and broadband connectivity needs.

The event, which is due to be held between 19-20th June 2018 in London (Business Design Centre), has today published a shortlist for 7 of the 8 categories to be awarded at the event and more than 30 organisations (i.e. ISPs and network deployment projects etc.) have made the grade. The list includes some familiar names, such as Gigaclear, Hyperoptic, EE and many more.

Apparently all of the entries will be assessed by an “expert panel of judges,” which includes key figures from INCA, Point Topic, Total Telecom and a few other organisations.
