Time to nominate your Internet Hero and Villain for a 2017 ISPA Award

Now is your chance to get involved in the annual ISPA Awards since nominations are open for the two categories

  • Internet Hero
  • Internet Villain

Nominations for who the ISPA Council should award each prize too are open until 5th June 2017 and nominations can be made via twitter by tweeting @ISPAUK and making it clear what your nomination is, or email if you prefer a little more privacy.

"The Internet Hero and Villain awards are how we recognise, in a fun and light-hearted manner, those who have, for better or worse, impacted on the UK Internet industry in the previous 12 months. We want as wide range of suggestions as possible, so we're calling on the public for their help in getting their ideas across to us."

ISPA Secretary General Nicholas Lansman

I nominate PlusNet for slow Broadband speed with no help in how to increase the download speed. Having told me that I would get between 32.5 - 36 Mbps on fibre up to 38 Mbps I can only get around 22 Mbps. I know some people get even slower speeds but I was getting around 16 Mbps on the old copper cable. Paying an extra £10.00 per month I was expecting a much higher speed.

Does it matter? The dude who runs this is at the head of it - it's going to be down to whoever chucks the most Cashoola his way

If you think otherwise you are just dreaming.

Pointless, Biased junk the ISPA is.

@ZenUser27: Villains and Heroes aren't really related to paying money.. As for ISP awards, they are decided independently by a judging panel.. What the public won't see is the submissions that come with things or who enters..

INTERNET VILLAIN - I nominate both the CIA and Microsoft jointly for the way in which the vunerability in Windows systems was both leaked and then exploited resulting in the NHS and others sUffering big time. Everyone blaming everyone else, no one owning up and admiting they messed up by not rolling out the patches to older operating systems. Many people are still on XP and Microsoft should at least keep it secure if nothing else, not like their short a few bob! LOL

#Villain BTOR worst engineers ever and no way of recompense for lost service and slower speeds
#PlusNet for at least trying to solve the above and keeping me advised

Nominate BT for SLOW fibre that gets slower and slower..and posts wide percentage margins of workability to get itself out of hole' with Ofocm so it does not have to work (cost) more to improve the network..

And yes IPSA is Biased..but it is fun to watch the results knowing that.
