"As ISPs continue to invest in networks and deliver great Internet services, I am pleased to launch the 2017 ISPAs. These awards celebrate the true breadth and diversity of the UK Internet industry, which plays a vital role for the UK economy and society. With technical testing and expert judges, these are the most independent awards in the sector and I look forward to seeing a record number of entries."James Blessing, the Chair of ISPA
