BT, Eclipse Internet, O2 send members to ISPA meeting

Friday, September 10th 2010 by Cable.co.uk

Internet Service Providers Association council member Trefor Davies has noted the body has attracted some "heavy-hitting" new members.

Some of the UK's biggest broadband providers have given their support to the Internet Service Providers' Association (ISPA).

BT, Eclipse Internet, Everything Everywhere - representing mobile network operators Orange and T-Mobile - and O2 now have members on the ISPA council.

Trefor Davies, an ISPA council member and chief executive of communications provider Timico, wrote on his blog that these "heavy-hitting" companies have "beefed up" the organisation's line-up.

The fact that these big-name firms are keen to participate in the running of the trade body reflects the amount of legislative activity currently surrounding the industry, Mr Davies claimed.

"I'd go so far to say that government attempts to regulate the internet are currently at an unprecedented level," the expert commented.

ISPA UK was established in 1995 and seeks to promote competition and the self-regulation of the sector.

Among the body's other big-name members are Virgin Media, Sky, Google, Yahoo!, eBay UK, PlusNet and Microsoft.
