BBR Awards were introduced in February of 2004. An award is based on the good bad ugly charts of company performance, charts that we produce weekly. These are based entirely on user reviews. There are three levels of award.

1. BBR Gold
The average review score for the current good-bad-ugly chart is over 80%, and the average score for the chart five months ago was also over 80%.

2. BBR Silver
The average review score for the current good-bad-ugly chart is over 70%, and the average score for the chart five months ago was also over 70%. OR, the company is new and has gained an average score for the current chart of over 80%.

3. BBR Bronze
The average review score for the current good-bad-ugly chart is over 60%, and the average score for the chart five months ago was also over 60%. OR, the company is new and has gained a current good-bad-ugly chart score of over 70%.

In order for the current, or past, good bad ugly score to be considered, there must have been more than 10 reviews received and incorporated into the score.

We think these awards fairly represent current and recent opinion on a company, but we urge you as an informed consumer to do your own research, including but not limited to reading the recent reviews we have received. Pay attention to the pedigree of the member (are they a regular user of the site?) and whether the review sounds bland or is just too good to be true. An award is no guarantee that your experience with a company will be stellar.

Rules on allowable use of this award logo on your site:

  • ISPs are welcome to show this award logo on their own website.
  • ISPs must link the logo back to the page /comments/NNN, where NNN is the ISP number.
  • The word "about" as a text link must be included below the logo and also be the same link.
  • The Month and Year that the logo was seen on our site must also be incorporated above the award image, in the form XXX YYYY, where XXX is a 3 letter month name, and YYYY is the four digit year.
  • If the award is more than six months old, and there is no newer award to show, then the logo must be removed from the site!
  • Other use, such as any printed promotional material, or use not in accordance with the above rules, must be pre-approved by us. Contact us in order to request such use.
  • Visitors who notice that a logo has been used incorrectly by an ISP should contact a moderator or use the "feedback" link available on any page.
