I can’t believe things have been so hectic that I haven’t had a chance to blog about our ISPA experience last Thursday until now.
The ISPA is an organisation punching well above its weight. Nicholas Lansman, the secretary general has been influencing not only ISP’s but government bodies and other organisations who play a big part in the UK’s Internet future for around a decade now and the awards are in their ninth year.
So as you can imagine, it’s a big deal to any company to be nominated for an award. The ISPA are a very secretive bunch and there’s absolutely no way to know if you have won before the envelope is opened, so we were pretty nervous right up until the announcement.
Luckily, the best hosting award comes third on the night, so after Lawrence Jones had picked up the award we were able to sit back and relax for the rest of the evening.
It’s the third year that we have won the award and this year the judges praised us chiefly for being able to offer hosting to any type of company – big or small. It’s something that has always been important to us, so it’s great to hear from our peers that it is working.
We celebrated by taking half the UKFast team – the brave half – up Snowdon on Saturday!!
