ISPA Begins Hunting for 2020’s UK Internet Heroes

Monday, Oct 19th, 2020 (3:02 pm) - Score 552
ISPA 25th Anniversary

The UK Internet Service Providers Association (ISPA) has today called for members of the public and industry alike to submit nominations for its 2020 “Internet Hero” award, with the eventual winner being announced via a special online ceremony on the 18th November 2020 at the 22nd annual ISPA Awards event.

Andrew Glover, ISPA Chair, said: “In a year where staying connected has never been so important, we are looking forward to receiving the public’s nominations for internet hero. With broadband playing such an important role in keeping people connected during the crisis, and with a key part to play in the UK’s recovery, are all looking forward towards an exciting evening which showcases the very best that the UK industry has to offer.”

Nominations can be submitted to the ISPA via email (awards @ ispa.org.uk) or via twitter (@ISPAUK) using the hashtags #InternetHero. The deadline to send nominations is Friday 6th November.

    I’m gonna nominate Zen Internet. I’ve had 5.5 years of perfect internet service and great customer service.

    In order for there to be true gender diversity all the heroes must be women and the villains men.

      Don’t forget, they have to also be of mixed race, undecided sexual identity and orientation Mike!

    I hope Fibrus win! About time us country folk in Northern Ireland had decent broadband and they certainly deliver! 10/10

    I’d like to nominate Three for their 4g home broadband in the Darwin Award category.

      For those of us stuck with 4G and nothing else available, Three are heroes. They broke the mould by offering unlimited data for a competitive price, OK they nearly broke the Three network doing it but it forced other 4G operators to offer similar packages. Unlimited 4G has been an absolute lifeline us here in rural Devon.

    Maybe an unpopular opinion but openreach are smashing the rollout for a single company

    1. Avatar photo Buggerlugz says:

      Yeah, smashing area’s already with fibre mostly.

    2. Avatar photo Danny says:

      They are doing more areas than everyone else and have had theirs over built more than anyone else. I don’t even have Fttp here but watching them build all over is amazing.

    3. Avatar photo PWT789 says:

      It’s almost like Openreach have been given a huge national network..

    4. Avatar photo GNewton says:

      Yes, yours probably is an unpopular opinion.

      BT Openreach is more than a decade too late in the game, installing and offering fibre is what a telecom company is supposed to do anyway, just like you’d expect a water company to build/maintain water pipes to the premises, etc. There is nothing special to be proud of with BT Openreach. It doesn’t even offer symmetric fibre, unlike some other network companies.
