Build a business case: developing custom apps

A polite and respectful ripple of applause for the following item please. ISPA (the Internet Service Provider's Association) has just announced the nominees for this year's industry awards.

So, put your hands togeher for AOL, Easynet, Freeserve, NTL and PlusNet who've been nominated for the for the best consumer unmetered ISP award. [Wot, no BT? ED]

Those fighting it out for the best consumer broadband provider are Blueyonder, Freeserve, NTL, PIPEX and Zen Internet. [Wot, no BT again? ED]

And the nominees for the best national consumer ISP are AOL, Breathe, BT Openworld, Freeserve and One.Tel. [OK, so they got nominated, ED]

Aramiska, Eclipse Internet, Mailbox Internet, Newnet and Pipex have all been shortlisted for the best business broadband provider award. [Tut, tut - c'mon BT you can do better than that, ED]

And the best national business ISP will be decided out of BT, Claranet, Easynet, Energis and Pipex.

There are other award categories but to be honest, we can't summon the energy to publish the list in its entirety. So check out ISPA's Web site.

Anyhow, the 5th Annual UK Internet Industry Awards will be decided by an independent panel of judges and announced on February 20.

Last month ISPA announced the shortlist for its annual Internet Villain award which included, among others, Oftel and the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). ®
