Boost IT visibility and business value

Pipex and Eclipse have scooped the top awards at this year's "Internet Oscars" held in London last night.

Pipex won "Best Consumer Broadband Provider" by offering a "good access level price for consumers requiring an all in one package to access the Internet with a high-speed connection".

Eclipse walked away with the "Best Business Broadband Provider" for its "commitment to research and development and customer service" and its "commitment to offering important value added services, such as virtual private network solutions".

Freeserve topped the list in the "Best Unmetered ISP" category for continuing to give consumers "value-for-money access and services, good customer support and the flexibility of not being tied into a contract".

And the "Best National Consumer ISP" went to One.Tel, while Claranet won the "Best National Business ISP".

Richard Allan, MP, was awarded the "Internet Hero" gong for his ongoing support and understanding of the Internet and the Internet industry.

And the title of "Internet Villain" went to the Home Office for its Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security (ATCS) Act and continued delays associated with the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA). Which is nice. ®
