KCOM in the running for three telecoms industry awards

East Yorkshire-based broadband provider KCOM has been shortlisted in three categories in the Oscars of the telecoms industry, including Best Consumer ISP (with more than 100,000 customers), Best Infrastructure and Best Customer Innovation at the Internet Services Providers’ Association (ISPA) Awards 2022.

KCOM has been nominated alongside national competitors Now, Sky and TalkTalk in the Best Consumer category and is up against Openreach in the Best Infrastructure category.

KCOM Chief Executive Tim Shaw said: “It’s particularly pleasing to have been nominated in the Customer Innovation category for all the work our teams have done to support local people struggling with the cost of living crisis by making  our Flex Social tariff more accessible and affordable.

“As a local company at the heart of the region, it’s important that we stand shoulder to shoulder with the communities we serve and this is great recognition that we’re heading in the right direction. We’ll look forward to finding out if we’ve won later this year.”

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in London in November.

ISPA Chair Steve Leighton, said:  “This year’s ISPA Awards shortlist is an excellent reflection of the vibrant and exciting broadband sector. From household names, new entrants and scale ups, to infrastructure builders, vendors and those serving consumers and business, ISPA is pleased to be showcasing the achievements made in the past twelve months that is seeing fibre deployment accelerated, data usage and speeds increased, and more support than ever being offered to customers struggling with the cost of living. I look forward to seeing the winners unveiled in November.”
