ISPA UK Awards place UKFast as finalist

UKFast has been scrutinised by industry professionals and placed in the final five for the accolade of Best Hosting provider 2005.

The Internet Services Providers' Association (ISPA UK) have revealed all the finalists in the ISP and Suppliers Divisions of The 2005 ISPAs – The 7th Annual UK Internet Industry Awards in association with Purple Sun and Webuser Magazine.

This years awards received over 180 entries across 17 categories – the largest ever for the awards, which since 1999 have celebrated innovation and best practice in the Internet sector.

The Times described The 2004 ISPAs as "The awards that could have the most direct bearing on your life."

As in previous years, board members from the industry and Government representatives will be in attendance to recognise the industry's achievements.

Part of the awards scheme's strength is its independence and objectivity, reinforced for the second year by ISPA's research partner Purple Sun.

Purple Sun was commissioned by ISPA to conduct tests and monitor the Internet services of entrants in the ISP Division over three months. Following analysis of the data, an independent data approval group - with representatives from ADSL Guide, Net4Nowt and Point Topic - approved the data and selected the shortlists for the coveted awards in the ISP Division.

The finalists in each category are available at

All finalists now to face the judging panels who will select the final winners. The awards will be announced in a ceremony on February 24th.
