Articles can be submitted via Got News or Tip? link on the home page, just below the ISP Reviews.

Anonymous articles are just as welcome as articles from registered users.

Here's some more information about submitting news:

What do we NOT accept as front page news?
  • I'm having lots of trouble with my ISP...
    • (We rarely publish a personal broadband hell story unless it is very unusual. The best place for this is an ISP review.)
  • Does anyone know how to ...
    • (There are many active forums on the site, questions on broadband should be directed there.)
  • Acme Corporation announce a partnership to ...
    • (We never publish the full text of press releases to the home page. It would have to be something very unusual and of wide interest, in which case, please include a link to the newswire story so we can check it out.)
  • Old news ...
    • (We are reluctant to highlight anything that is more than a few days old, unless it has not received much attention elsewhere on the net.)

So what do we want?
  • We want broadband-related news and information, particularly bits that bring together two or more links or include useful links along with the main news bit. There is no need to format things up well unless you enjoy doing so, since we do that before it is published.

Adding news items in individual forums is very similar. Each forum that accepts news will have a link like this one:

Just follow the instructions that appear from the link. Please cut and paste at least a few lines from the news article into the submission form ... something more than just a link. We appreciated you doing this, and it increases the chances of your story being accepted. With hundreds of news submissions every day throughout the site, there just isn't enough time to follow each link and determine what the story is about.

Note: The ability to submit news items in the forums may not be available to new members right away, whether premium or basic.
