A4 Senior team 104 med resIndependent internet service provider Airband was announced as a finalist in the 2019 ISPA Awards last week. This comes shortly after its announcement of extended capability following an extension to its fleet and a significant recruitment drive to meet increased demand.

This is the 21st year of the ISPA Awards – which makes them the longest running and most prestigious awards for the UK’s internet industry.

The ISPAs are judged by a panel of industry experts alongside technical testing by independent advice website Thinkbroadband, and Airband was shortlisted in Best Rural ISP category.

The winners will be announced at a gala ceremony on July 11 at the Sheraton Grand Park Lane Hotel in London.

Airband director Red Peel commented:

“It’s always so encouraging to be nominated for the ISPA Awards because they represent excellence across the whole spectrum of the telecoms industry – and it reminds us that we are playing a key role to provide vital services to keep the UK’s digital economy driving forwards, even in hard-to-reach areas.

“As Airband continues to grow and diversify, we have extended our offering to include FTTP broadband for communities and rural homes and businesses. We are proud of this recognition of the work that we are doing to create the best possible infrastructure for rural broadband.”

Airband specialises in high speed broadband for homes, business and industry across rural and hard-to-reach areas, and demand-led community broadband projects. It currently has networks spanning Worcestershire, Shropshire, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire, Warwickshire, North and South Wales, Devon and Somerset.

The firm’s expansion has been via both government-led infrastructure projects and independent community-led projects.
