Ask4 nominated for University Business Partner of the Year Award

ASK4, the UK’s leading provider of Internet services to student accommodation, has been shortlisted for a major national award.

The Sheffield company is one of three finalists for the University Business Partner of the Year Award in the inaugural CUBO Uliving awards, recognising the great practices, support and innovation that make for an excellent student experience.

Ask4 provides superfast fibreoptic broadband and associated services such as IPTV, gaming and backup to students at universities across the UK at speeds in excess of 100Mb/s.

The award winners will be announced by former British and Irish Lions and Scotland rugby captain Gavin Hastings at the CUBO Summer Conference gala dinner, to be held in the grand setting of the Playfair Library at Edinburgh University on Wednesday, June 20.

Oliver Riddle, Business Development Director at Ask4, commented: “it’s hugely satisfying to be see Ask4 on a shortlist of three for this award.

“We are a rapidly growing business and to be recognised in this way is testament to the guys in Support and Customer Service. We look forward to the awards in June.”

CUBO (College and University Business Officers) is the professional association for senior managers in higher education whose responsibilities include the strategic planning, management, administration and development of residential portfolios, catering and retail operations and commercial income generation from business and leisure tourism, including the management of year-round conference and training centres.

Ask4 will be exhibiting at CUBO ’12 at Edinburgh University, from June 20 to 22.
