Jurassic Fibre has been shortlisted for multiple national awards at the 2021 ISPA Internet Industry and Broadband Awards.

The announcement comes shortly after Jurassic Fibre unveiled Sidmouth as the latest location to benefit from their ultrafast fibre-to-the-premises network.

The Devon-based broadband company has been shortlisted in three categories for this year’s event: Best Consumer ISP, Best Business ISP and Best Partnership (with Burrington Estates).

The ISPA Awards celebrate and showcase the top internet providers in the UK’s broadband industry. They join other nominees Community Fibre, Zzoomm, Hyperoptic, Exa Networks and Glide in the running for the awards.

Jurassic Fibre previously took home the title of ‘Best New ISP’ at last year’s ISPA Awards, beating Giganet, Technological Services and Zzoomm for the national accolade.

The nomination comes hard on the heels of Jurassic Fibre’s announcement to expand its network to residents and businesses in Sidmouth and surrounding villages.
Michael Maltby, CEO and Founder of Jurassic Fibre, said: “We are very pleased to be named as a finalist for the Best Consumer ISP, Best Business ISP and Best Partnership categories at the 2021 ISPA Awards. This is the second year in a row we have been shortlisted for the awards, after taking home the title of Best New ISP at last year’s event. This result is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our highly skilled and motivated team and firmly cements Jurassic Fibre’s status as one of the UK’s leading internet service providers.
“Jurassic Fibre is rapidly expanding our ultrafast full fibre network across Devon, Somerset and Dorset. We can now service almost 50,000 premises in communities including Barnstaple, Exmouth, Honiton, Bridgwater and Taunton with Wellington, Yeovil and Sidmouth shortly expected to go live.
“As a local company, we are committed to supporting communities and businesses right here in the South West and delivering cutting-edge connectivity to some of the most hard-to-reach locations across the region.”
Exeter-based Jurassic Fibre received a £250m investment from Fern Trading, advised by Octopus Investments, to deliver a fibre network for the South West, passing over 350,000 premises. 
Their goal to future-proof the broadband infrastructure across Devon, Somerset and Dorset for years to come, drives Jurassic Fibre to provide the best connectivity to communities which have historically been overlooked by other providers.
