Broadband Compare Awards - finalists announced

Broadband Compare Awards, supported by Consumer NZ - finalists announced

With the Broadband Compare Awards now less than six weeks away the finalists in the inaugural event have been named.

The awards, which are supported by Consumer NZ - New Zealand’s trusted source of independent consumer information - cover eleven different categories across the broadband sector including Best Fibre Provider, Best Bundled Plan, Best Gaming Broadband Provider and Best Regional ISP.

More than 20 different internet providers make up the finalists across the various categories ranging from prominent and well-known brands through to smaller regional and specialist internet providers. Commenting on the announcement, Gavin Male, Broadband Compare Managing Director enthused, "If the entries to the inaugural Broadband Compare Awards are any indication of the state of New Zealand’s broadband sector, then we should be hugely optimistic about the future. The number and quality of entrants taking part across the different categories impressed us greatly and the panel of judges will have a very tough task selecting the winners."

The judging panel of the 2017 Broadband Compare Awards includes representatives from Consumer NZ, TUANZ, the NZ eSports Federation and RHAANZ and the winners will be announced at a gala awards evening, hosted by multi-award winning comedian and MC, Nick Rado. The event takes place at the Sapphire Room in Auckland on 2 November and tickets are on sale now at www.broadbandawards.co.nz
