Exa win at ISPA Awards 2022

The ISPA Awards 2022 were presented last night, 24th November – Here’s how we did

Each year, the Internet Service Providers Association (ISPA) recognises the hard work that goes into providing the UK with fast, reliable internet services. Categories include: Best Rural ISP, Best Consumer ISP, Best Business ISP, and more. The awards are judged independently by a panel of experts in the industry.

Competition for the Awards is always steep, with some of the biggest names in the industry shortlisted. Being nominated for 18 consecutive years is a massive achievement and this is down to the hard work of the whole team and our close collaborations with our partners and our customers to ensure we are delivering services and products that truly meet their needs.

Over nearly 2 decades, we’ve been shortlisted for in excess of 70 awards at the ISPA Awards, and have previously won awards such as: Best Customer Service, and Best Partnership, Best Business ISP, and Social Impact to name a few.

This year, we were shortlisted for 4 Awards:

Best Cyber Security
For the ISP or vendor that makes the Internet more secure. This could be through a product, partnership or initiative.
Best Customer Innovation
For the ISP who has provided an innovative technological solution to a complex customer issue
Best VoIP
Entrants must be providers offering Voice Over Internet Protocol services.
Best Hosted Service
Entrants must offer hosting services to consumers or businesses.

The 2022 awards ceremony was held at the Landmark Hotel, London on the 24th November. The night included a drinks reception and three course black-tie dinner. Comedian Nick Helm acted as master of ceremonies, while the awards were presented by the category sponsors.

The Results

Best Cyber Security

And the result is...


For our work with Entrust to improve security across 250 schools and 100,000 end users with our Protect & Connect® package.

The judges felt that Exa offered a broader range of packages and features that work in combination to provide a really effective solution.

We’re thrilled with the result. We continuously develop our services for our customers, so these awards are a great recognition of our team’s dedication. This year marks the fourth consecutive year that we’ve won an ISPA award.

I was ecstatic to find out that we'd won in the Best Cyber Security category for our Exa Protect & Connect® bundle of services and products that we have spent years curating and developing for our customers. To be found best in class in this category is something that our team and I are very proud of.

As always, it’s a privilege to be nominated for these awards. They truly are the benchmark in the industry. Well done to all the winners and those who were highly commended. We look forward to entering next year.
