Fast Twenty of 2007
Share |

Top Teleport Operators
The Fast Twenty rankings are based on information submitted by companies as well as the published accounts of publicly-held corporations. The rankings include only companies that own and operate teleports and that generate at least 60% of revenues from satellite applications, unless those companies provided a breakout of satellite-related revenues to WTA, in which case its ranking is based on the reported satellite-related revenue.

The Fast Twenty ranks all teleport-operating companies based on year-over-year revenue growth in their most recent fiscal years. (For individual growth rates, see the WTA Web site.) Revenues of the Fast Twenty exceed $7.5 billion. Israel-based Satlink led the pack with a stellar 116.28% growth rate. Through the teleport operations of Vyvx make up a small portion of its revenue, fiber giant Level 3 also made the Fast Twenty by virtue of its aggressive series of acquisitions, as did Fast Twenty companies Arqiva Satellite Media Solutions, and UpLit.
