NEW YORK, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. magazine today ranked Wilshire Connection NO. 3330 on its fourth annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. Other telecommunications companies including Fiberlight, Telx, Telepacific, Nitel and Net2EZ, are also among the prominent brands featured on this year's list with Wilshire Connection.
"The leaders of the companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression," said Inc. president Bob LaPointe. "The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs."
Wilshire Connection (Wilcon) is a carrier-neutral "carrier's carrier" with an extensive network (built, owned and operated by Wilcon) connecting all major colocation facilities and data centers throughout Los Angeles. Wilcon provides dark fiber and lit circuits for all international and domestic carriers between data centers/colo/meet-me rooms, as well as providing lit transport circuits between Los Angeles and Las Vegas and between Los Angeles and New York. Customer focused solutions and flexible, efficient and quality service distinguishes Wilcon from all others.
The 2010 Inc. 5000, unveiled today on Inc.com, serves as a unique illustration of the profound changes taking place in the U.S. economy. Despite the fact that most of this year's measuring period of 2006-2009 took place during the latest recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $321.6 billion, up more than 50 percent from last year. The effects of the recession are seen, however, in the median three-year growth rate, which dropped to 96 percent from last year's 126 percent. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found on www.inc.com/5000.
