Quickline unveiled as a finalist for the internet industry's UK awards

Quickline has been shortlisted by The Internet Services Providers' Association (ISPA UK) for the Best Rural Broadband category. The winners will be announced for the 2017 annual ISPA awards, the longest running and most prestigious Internet industry awards in the UK, at Cafe de Paris on 13 July in London.

Millions of technical tests have been performed and thousands of words poured over in order to reach the fifty companies nominated across fifteen categories.

This is the highest accolade Quickline can achieve within the broadband industry. We are delighted to have been nominated alongside other excellent entrants and look forward to the awards ceremony in London.

As the ISP sector continues to develop and evolve, Quickline entered one of the new categories introduced this year which has seen a high number of entries. The Best Rural Broadband Award features ISPs that specialise in connecting some of the hardest to reach areas using different technologies.

ISPA Secretary General Nick Lansman commented: "The companies shortlisted at this year's ISPA Awards play a vital role in ensuring the UK remains a world leading digital economy. The 19th ISPAs once again demonstrates the innovation and diversity of our industry and I look forward to finding out the winners at the gala awards ceremony on July 13."

The finalists in the broadband categories have been determined by technical testing undertaken by ISPAs independent technical testing partner, thinkbroadband. Using these results, and the written entry forms for non-technically tested categories, an independent panel of industry experts will decide the winners.
