How we choose the winners
The uSwitch Broadband & Mobile Award winners are chosen through a combination of an expert judging panel, consumer surveys and the 1.4 million broadband speed tests conducted on our site. We’ve outlined who determines which awards on our awards homepage.
Our awards judging panel includes technology, news and consumer finance journalists from outlets like the BBC, CNET, The Telegraph and Pocket-lint.
This year, we’ve surveyed our largest-ever sample of 5,000 bill-payers and broadband decision-makers to determine our public choice awards.
