Broadband Compare managing director Gavin Male said: “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 New Zealand eSports Federation and RHAANZ. The winners will be announced at an awards evening taking place at the Sapphire Room in Auckland on 2 November. Tickets on sale at broadbandawards.co.nz.
