The Internet Service Providers' Association (ISPA) is seeking suggestions from members of the public for its Internet Hero and Internet Villain Awards.

Each year, these categories feature at the ISPA Awards - and consumer feedback is vital as the association selects category winners.

"Who do you think has done the most good for the internet and who has harmed the industry in the last year?" ISPA questioned.

"Anyone is eligible for this award, from individuals, politicians and government, to companies and organisations of all shapes and sizes."

Broadband for the Rural North (B4RN) - the community initiative responsible for bringing fibre-optic broadband to the Forest of Bowland in Lancashire - was named the 2012 Hero.

And last year's Villain was the International Telecoms Union, which ISPA accused of attempting an "internet governance land grab".

Nick Lansman, Secretary General at ISPA, noted that the awards have been celebrating the best - and the worst - of the British internet industry for the last 15 years.

"By crowdsourcing the public for their views on who should get these awards, we hope to get the biggest spread of heroes and villains to date," he stated.
