Fast Twenty-One of 2008

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 Fast Twenty ranks all teleport-operating companies based on year-over-year revenue growth in their most recent fiscal years. CapRock Communications led the fast pack with an impressive 95.83% growth rate. Hot on their heels was Arqiva with 87.66%. An honorable mention goes to Europe Media Port, a 2008 start-up with a tremendous first-year showing but no prior year of results on which its growth rate could be calculated.

Due to an editorial error, one company was inadvertently omitted from the Global Top Twenty and Fast Twenty rankings: the Russian communications company Gascom. We apologize for the error and are re-issuing the 2008 rankings, which now include the Global Top Twenty-One companies and the Fast Twenty-One companies.
