The Guardian has been named this year's Internet Hero at the Internet Services Providers’ Association (ISPA) Awards 2014.

ISPA said the broadsheet newspaper had received the accolade for its "excellent reporting of mass surveillance programmes", specifically the PRISM revelations.

GHCQ/NSA claimed the unwanted Internet Villain award for their role in the UK's 'surveillance state'.

Almost 50 organisations were nominated for 'ISPAs' across 16 categories, with Catalyst2 and Hyperoptic the major victors on the night.

Each came away with two awards - Catalyst2 picked up Best Consumer Customer Service and Customer Choice, while Hyperoptic retained its Best Superfast Broadband award from last year and also Best Use of Digital.

Plusnet was the winner in the Best Consumer Fixed Broadband category, with the judges praising the firm's "consumer-friendly pricing" and focus on the user experience.

ISPA Secretary General Nick Lansman offered congratulations to all the ISPA award winners.

"The ISPA Awards are hugely diverse and highlight how diverse the UK internet industry is and the vital role it plays in the British economy," he stated.
