Sky and BT’s TV offerings were locked in a dead heat, meanwhile, scooping Best TV Service and Best Broadband and TV respectively.

Ernest Doku, communications expert at uSwitch.com, said: “With super-fast speeds currently a hot topic and the home broadband market more fiercely competitive than ever before, it’s certainly an incredibly exciting and challenging time for the industry and consumers alike.

“Most importantly, services are improving and providers have recognised that value-adds and customer support are becoming as important as low prices to appeal to savvy consumers.

“These awards show that in a competitive market, some providers are managing to stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons, making it a compelling reason for consumers to select the right package.

“Our awards are predominantly voted for by customers who can provide an honest and objective opinion of their providers. Overall, as consumers we should always bear in mind to our homework to ensure that we get the right package, at the right price.

“But with little between the top providers, it is all still to play for. If suppliers keep pushing the boundaries and improving their services, consumers will be the real winners.”
