About The ISPAs
The ISPAs - the UK Internet industry awards - are unique as they are awarded to people and organisations in the industry by their peers and reflect the broad nature of the service provider sector.

The Internet Services Providers' Association (ISPA UK) has been organising the UK Internet Industry Awards since 1999 to herald the best of the Internet industry and to celebrate innovation and best practice. In 2002 the awards were dubbed The ISPAs.

Each year the event changes to reflect changes in the sector and to represent the ever broadening nature of the service provider sector. The awards categories now fall into one of three divisions - ISP, Supplier and Special Awards. Attended by senior decision makers, Government representatives and the media, The ISPAs are the premiere event for the industry.
