USCarrier Telecom Named to the 2009 Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in the U.S.


Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. Magazine ranked USCarrier Telecom ( 4069 on its third annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. As an Inc. 5000 honoree, USCarrier shares a prestigious place with some of America's most successful businesses. The list represents the most comprehensive look at an important segment of the economy -- America's independent-minded entrepreneurs.


A Southeastern provider of wholesale long-haul fiber optic transport based in Atlanta, Georgia and founded in 1997, USCarrier was the creation of twenty local independent telephone companies. The mission was to create a statewide, fiber optic network servicing second and third tier cities with cutting-edge telecommunication services. A venture that, at the time, was both visionary and risky. Today, USCarrier has experienced significant growth while surviving a downturn in the economy and industry-wide mega-mergers.


"We are privileged to be named to such an esteemed list," said Joaquin Luna, President of USCarrier. "USCarrier is a unique blend of creativity, dedication and hard work. I know this company could not have achieved such an honor without the support of the USCarrier team, the loyalty of our customers and the entrepreneurial spirit of the Board of Directors and members."


The Inc. 5000 are responsible for creating more than 1 million jobs since their founding. Making the list is the best example of the impact private companies can have on the economy.
