NewNet plc nominated as Comms Business Awards Finalist

Internet Service Provider NewNet plc, is delighted to announce that they have been nominated as a finalist for the category of ‘Most Innovative Channel Product’ in the Comms Business Awards 2008.

The Most Innovative Channel Product award recognises the company who introduced an innovative, cutting edge product or service in 2007, and can clearly demonstrate the impact the product has had on the channel market and its financial success.

Amy Moore, Head of Channel Strategy at NewNet plc commented: “Since our recent unbundling of BT exchanges we experienced an immediate interest and increased activity of LLU services sold via our Channel Partners. This new business momentum has contributed significantly to NewNet’s overall sales growth and this recent nomination is testament to the quality products and services we provide our Channel Partners.”

NewNet were nominated for the award following a detailed review of LLU hardware, software application and ADSL+ services provided. The nomination was also supported by a detailed synopsis of NewNet’s channel strategy, market share growth and channel partner testimonials.
