The long path towards the 2016 ISPA Awards has started with registration across all the categories starting (except for Internet Hero & Villain). For those firms wanting to be considered for an award the categories and rules and entry form are online at ispa.thinkbroadband.com.
"The ISPA Awards are a great way to celebrate the true breadth and diversity of the UK Internet industry which plays a vital role for the UK economy. With the Internet now essential for consumers and businesses, I look forward to the tough testing and judging that will uncover the best providers in 2016."Nicholas Lansman, ISPA Secretary General
The initial registration has to be done by 29th January 2016 with the deadline for the longer written entry forms being 25th March 2016.
2016 has three new categories Best Cloud Product, Best Marketing Campaign and Best CPE Hardware which will be decided by a panel of judges. The broadband, hosting and VoIP categories are all tested for a period of a couple of months to ensure that services entered meet the criteria and also to whittle down the large number of entries to a shortlist for the judging panel.
