Leading IT Services Group bags "Best Business ISP" gong at The 2007 ISPAs. Claranet, the managed services experts, has been named "Best Business ISP" at The 2007 ISPAs - The 9th Annual UK Internet Industry Awards.

The Best Business ISP award is presented to the business Internet service provider which provides the most outstanding Internet services for UK businesses. Entrants' broadband services are independently tested for three months and the final winner is selected based on a variety of criteria including the diversity of packages, pricing, hosting services and other value added services.

An ISPA Spokesperson reported:

The judges agreed that Claranet's services offer outstanding quality, reliability and adaptability for businesses. They were particularly impressed with Claranet's customer support and their dedicated managed security services.

Claranet beat the competition to take the award, presented by the Internet Services Providers' Association (ISPA) at the annual awards ceremony at the London Marriott Hotel, in Grosvenor Square.
