Who: Cbeyond Communications

Vitals: This carrier is based in Atlanta, Ga., where it launched its first market in 2001. It focuses on managed VoIP and other IP-related services for the small and medium-sized business market. As of the end of the third quarter last year, it had 33,287 customers and roughly 1100 employees.
