"What?... has been the unanimous outcry of many industry experts when told that Xtra won both "Best ISP" and "Best NZ Web Site" PC World Awards.

Regardless of what the industry and some Net users of long-standing may think, PC World readers voted Xtra as winner in both categories.

Many believe that if Clear had launched its site two months earlier the results may have been somewhat different - but we'll never know.

Reports are that most of Xtra's staff were "on cloud nine" yesterday in the wake of this news - others say it was simply the effects of a collective hangover.

Other observations from attendees were that several Xtra people were seen with long steely knives asking "Have you seen Russell Brown anywhere?"

Sadly Aardvark didn't rate a mention from PC World voters - I wonder if that's a good or a bad thing?
