Apologies for the lack of stories up so far, normal service will resume shortly. We’ve been working in the background though, honest. You see, we’ve jumped on the bandwagon and started our very own awards.

Yes, the Telewest Broadband Shiny Awards are here! We got a top notch panel of judges (ie. our tech journo mates) on board, got a list of nominations together, and had a bit of a tussle over which ones were our favourites. Read on for the nominations.
