Connected Britain Reveals 2023 Broadband Award Winners

connected britain award

The annual Connected Britain Awards 2023 (Total Telecom) took place this week, which among other things saw full fibre provider brsk scoop both the coveted “Broadband Provider of the Year” and “Full Fibre ISP Innovation” awards, while Vodafone was named for the “B2B Service Provider of the Year” award.

All of the organisations that entered – spanning across various different categories – were assessed by a large panel of over 20 judges, which included key figures from various analyst firms, consultants, network operators, universities and various other companies or organisations with industry links.

The winner’s list doesn’t currently include a useful description of why each winner was chosen, although our regular readers should be able to guess most of them. But we should point out that Norfolk County Council won the Access Innovation Award for its work to connect remote and hard to reach villages to deliver superfast broadband via Starlink’s LEO satellites (the trial is being run in 10 village halls), which is then distributed to nearby homes via a fixed wireless network (FWA).

      Yep, yet another sham awards ceremony.

      Good excuse for a booze up at the investor’s expense.

    LCR Connect best Project Roll-out????
    Over a year behind schedule, bickering partners and commercial model under severe distress – winning attributes, clearly!
    Really makes you wonder how rigorous the judging is.
