Bypass Network Services is pleased to announce that their network level parental control solution – the Buddy Guard platform has been recognised as a finalist in the Broadband Compare Awards for Best Broadband Innovation. Bypass is the only Value Added Services Provider nominated in this category; the three others are traditional telecommunications providers.
Somewhat ironically, Bypass is not usually in the business of competing with its customers; it’s our role to help broadband providers stand out and differentiate themselves from their competition. The Best Broadband Innovation category is open to consumer and business Internet Service Providers as well as organisations like Bypass that work within the broadband industry.
Every month 30,000 consumers check Broadband Compare to look at the value their provider offers. Our offers are designed to set our customers broadband connection apart so they stop competing based on speed, price and data.
The uptake of the kid-safe Internet is gaining momentum, yet on the comparison site, customers with children can not see if their provider offers an option to block inappropriate content. We’ve contacted the site to see if we can rectify this.*
The awards are supported by Consumer, a trusted source of independent consumer information. We’re proud to be recognized and wish our fellow entrants all the best for the awards.
Our thanks to Chorus for sponsoring the Broadband Innovation Category.
*Update 28th Sept: Great news, we’ve heard back from Broadband Compare and are pleased to tell you they are creating a kid-safe category on their website soon.
