ISPA Unveil Finalists for the 2022 UK ISP Internet Industry Awards

The UK Internet Service Providers Association (ISPA) has published a shortlist of finalists for their 2022 annual industry awards, which sees various broadband ISPs being nominanted across several categories. Once again, Exa Networks received the highest number of nominations (4), with CommunityFibre, Giganet, KCOM and Ogi also doing well.

Just to recap. The winners of last year’s event were unveiled back in November 2021 (here), which among other things saw B4RN walk away with the award for “Best Rural ISP“, while CommunityFibre scooped both the “Best Consumer ISP” and “Best Ultrafast ISP” awards. Meanwhile, Helen Milner (OBE) of the Good Things Foundation was named “Internet Hero” for the group’s efforts to tackle digital inclusion.

However, the award categories have been revised for this year’s event, which is intended to help reflect the changing market of alternative networks. For example, different awards will now be given to ISPs or infrastructure operators with more than 100,000 customers or premises passed, and also for those with fewer than 100,000 customers or premises passed.

The announcement about all this actually seems to have been published on the ISPA’s website last week, but for some reason we didn’t get the press release and nobody else seems to have covered it either. But better late than never, we hope.

ISPA Chair, Steve Leighton, said:

“This year’s ISPA Awards shortlist is an excellent reflection of the vibrant and exciting broadband sector. From household names, new entrants and scale ups, to infrastructure builders, vendors and those serving consumers and business, ISPA is pleased to be showcasing the achievements made in the past twelve months that is seeing fibre deployment accelerated, data usage and speeds increased, and more support than ever being offered to customers struggling with the cost of living. I look forward to seeing the winners unveiled in November.”

As usual, the shortlist for the ‘Internet Hero‘ and ‘Internet Villain‘ (returning after a long absence) awards will be unveiled closer to the ceremony, and once again the ISPA will be crowdsourcing suggestions from the public in the coming months. The Awards’ event itself will take place on the 24th November 2022 at the Landmark Hotel in London.

    I’m a bit surprised that Zen haven’t been shorlisted for any of the categories and therefore can’t win anything. Have they really gone down so much?

    I’m very surprised that Airband are on the list!

    Law breaking, Health and safety NON existent, Improvement notices from councils no adhered to, Not treating staff with any respect…. the list goes on.

    Burning through investors money, 600k worth of tools and kit missing and not accounted for.
