The best new provider accolade at the 2012 ISPA Awards went to Hyperoptic.

Fibre optic broadband provider Hyperoptic has won a prize at the 2012 ISPA Awards.

The company saw off competition from Boundless Communications, Spectrum Internet and Wirehive to win the best new internet service provider category.

Furthermore, Hyperoptic was nominated by the Internet Service Providers' Association (ISPA) as the UK's top consumer fixed broadband firm, alongside more established companies such as Be Broadband, Plusnet and Virgin Media.

"It's been another important and fast-moving 12 months for the internet industry and the awards are a good measure of achievement and innovation in the past year," commented ISPA secretary general Nicolas Lansman.

Hyperoptic was established last year by president Boris Ivanovic and managing director Dana Pressman Tobak, who previously worked together to found Be Broadband.

In September, the communications provider claimed to be the first in the UK to launch a service offering consumers symmetrical speeds of 1Gbps - around 140 times above the UK average.
