Just a handful of telecom companies in America made it
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 21, 2015 — Southern California-based communications provider Bel Air Internet has earned a spot on the newly released 2015 Inc. 5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fasted growing private companies.
Bel Air Internet, which provides high-speed wireless Internet, television and phone service to residential and business customers throughout Los Angeles, Orange County and Las Vegas, boasts a 67% growth rate in the last three years.
“Our sales have increased exponentially in all areas,” explains CEO Terry Koosed, who attributes the growth to BAI’s loyal customer base and an endless supply of businesses desperate for a customer service-based alternative to the lackluster telecom behemoths. “Because of our high quality of service, we’ve had a particular explosion in our specialty niches of providing Internet to real estate developers, post-production houses and our temporary Internet division in which we provide live streaming for events throughout Southern California and now, Las Vegas. We are very proud to have been added to this exclusive list.”
Only a relative handful of telecommunications companies earned their way on the elite list this year, which was unveiled online at Inc.com this week.
About the Inc. 500|5000 and Methodology:
The Inc. 500|5000 is a list of the fastest-growing private companies in the nation. Started in 1982, this prestigious list of the nation’s most successful private companies has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success.
The 2015 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2011 to 2014. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2011. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent–not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies–as of December 31, 2014. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2011 is $100,000; the minimum for 2014 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons.
