Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

The rising stars of the British Internet industry gathered at a gala awards ceremony in London last night to celebrate the achievements of the last year. E-commerce minister Patricia Hewitt spoke of the progress the country was making and of the "major strides that the Net industry had made in only a few years". Despite her captive audience, she failed to mention chancellor Gordon Brown's bid to cut the cost of Net access in Britain, that was splashed on the front page of the big pink one today. That aside, the ISPA (Internet Service Providers Association) Internet Industry Awards are known as the Oscars of the industry. Thankfully, no one burst into tears as they made their acceptance speech, although the chaps at ISP Totalise got rather excited when they found out they won. ® The Winners of the ISPA Internet Industry Awards 2000
