ISPA Goes on the Hunt for 2021 UK Internet Heroes

Friday, August 27th, 2021 (1:00 am) - Score 408
ISPA 25th Anniversary

The UK Internet Service Providers Association (ISPA) has put out a request for members of the public and industry alike to submit nominations for its 2021 “Internet Hero” award, with the eventual winner being announced on 4th November 2021 at an awards ceremony in central London (Sheraton Grand Park Lane Hotel).

Andrew Glover, ISPA Chairman, said: “In a year of continued challenges from the pandemic, the industry has continued to rise to overcome these challenges, especially in gigabit-capable broadband rollout which has now passed 40% coverage. The Hero Award is an excellent opportunity to see the work performed by organisations and individuals recognised at the ISPA awards. We look forward to seeing who the public would like to see take the much-coveted 2021 Internet Hero Award.”

Last year’s Hero was awarded collectively to the Internet industry itself for keeping everybody connected in and out of lockdowns. Otherwise, the deadline for nominations is 17th September 2021.

    I think I’m getting old and grumpy, but this overuse of the word “Hero” is a complete disrespect for proper heroes, people who gave or risked their lives for others or for a greater cause.
    Rant over. I’m going to get my dried frog pills.

    Your spot on Andre, they provide a service, like the NHS. Just do your job. The problem we have is its become a spectator sport to clap and cheer because its cheaper to do that than pay people properly. This is another example of such a thing, its just an avenue to peerages or medals for CEO’s in this instance.

  3. Buggerlugz says:

    Just think, if OFCOM was as good at clamping down on the unscrupulous sales tactics of ISP’s as ISPA is at patting their own members on the back, the UK’s broadband service sector would be so so much better.

    Would be nice to see some recognition for the many unpaid fiber scheme organisers like me who have made community schemes happen!
