Hyperoptic, the UK’s leading Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband provider, has kept its crown for “Best Superfast Broadband” at the 2016 Internet Services Providers’ Association (ISPA) awards. This is the fourth year in a row that Hyperoptic has been awarded this coveted accolade. 

The ISPA awards are the UK's longest running Internet industry awards, celebrating innovation and best practice in the UK Internet industry. Hyperoptic was shortlisted in four categories:

  • Best Superfast Broadband
  • Best Consumer Fixed Broadband
  • Best Business Broadband
  • Best Consumer Customer Service

Over the last five years, Hyperoptic has worked hard to redefine the broadband market in the UK, pioneering FTTP broadband deployments, which enable gigabit connectivity. The company has also set the gold standard for the industry in the delivery of broadband services, by offering no-contract and broadband-only packages – giving consumers the freedom and choice to enjoy their online lives to the maximum.

The last year has been a time of exciting expansion for Hyperoptic. The company recently announced that it is expanding its gigabit footprint to 20 cities and towns across the UK, enabling hundreds of thousands more consumers and businesses to have access to its award-winning services. 

Steve Holford, Chief Customer Officer, Hyperoptic, comments: "The recognition that Hyperoptic continues to offer the “Best Superfast Broadband” in the UK is a fantastic coup for us. We operate in a difficult market – with older providers that are committed to try and keep consumers in the Dark Age to sweat their assets.  

“Our vision for the UK is much more ambitious – we believe that British consumers and businesses should not have to compromise on their connectivity – the trinity of speeds, consistency and flexibility should come as standard. Having this continued support from our industry body is hugely motivating as we gear for continued growth.”
