15th ISPA Awards shortlist announced

Yes it is almost July again, which means it is the time of the year when the Internet industry gets dressed up and is locked into a room until they find out whether their hard work for the year has won them an award. The 15th ISPA Awards will be held at the Park Lane Sheraton Hotel in London on the 11th July and ISPA has now released the shortlists for the various categories.

To be shortlisted means that in the technical categories the entrant has made it through the technical testing phases, which thinkbroadband run for the broadband and hosting categories with Malden Electronics testing for the Internet Telephony category. The Customer Choice award is determined by public vote with voting in that category now closed.

Where do the "public" go to vote, on-line I expect :p

Thanks Andrew.
Must have missed that News item earlier in the year somehow :(

"This survey is not accepting additional responses at this time. Thank You!"

The survey doesn't seem to want any more votes - guess they must have enough from the "public" and need the next seven weeks to count them all :p

As the Customer Choice carries a prize of attending event, it closes early enough to allow vote counting, and contact winner etc.

This has to be a fiddle, HyperOptic nominated in 4 categories?! Their customer base is tiny!
