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.

Why you should care: Cbeyond CEO James Geiger, speaking at an investor conference this week, said the company has seen a slight increase in involuntary disconnects among SMB customers, similar to what AT&T has seen in the consumer market and perhaps a side effect of overall economic woes in the U.S. Still, Geiger said he also sees continuing strong growth in new customer additions.
