The 2013 Broadband InfoVision Awards are judged by an independent expert panel including influential figures from: UN Broadband Commission; Amsterdam Internet Exchange; BSkyB; BT Openreach; Deutsche Telekom; KT, Korea; PCCW, Hong Kong; and Telstra, Australia. This impressive panel of industry figureheads demonstrates the high level nature and significance of this awards ceremony and winning is one of the most highly sought after accolades in the industry.
