“We were overwhelmed by the response we received to these awards and by the quality of entries – the judges certainly had a tough job,” said Malcolm Corbett, CEO at INCA. “However, there were a handful of entries that really stood out, both for their innovation and the results achieved. We look forward to recognising the whole altnet industry at the awards ceremony which marks the start of a new era where altnets start to receive the celebration they deserve. It is an honour for us to be able to commend those making such important and innovative progress in building the UK’s digital infrastructure.”
