Chicago, IL [June 3, 2013] — Nitel, a Chicago-based provider of nationwide managed telecom services, has been named to Crain’s Chicago Business’ Fast Fifty for an extraordinary fifth straight year.  The annual list ranks Chicago area companies based on revenue growth over a five-year span.

Nitel’s five year growth of 184% landed them at number 30 on this year’s list.  This honor makes Nitel one of only a handful of companies who have made the list five times or more.

Although Nitel has long been a leader in serving rural markets, they are now primed to expand their reach into metro areas.  Over the past year they have successfully launched their own network facilities in Atlanta, Los Angeles and Chicago, providing competitive rates matched with cutting-edge services.

“This is the most significant deployment we’ve ever been involved in,” CEO Rick Stern said. “We’ll now be more competitive in major metro markets than we have been in the past.”

Nitel has plans to expand their network to other major metro markets in the near future.  With a focus on providing personalized customer care, innovative technology, and an expanded range of products and services, Nitel looks forward to another year of remarkable growth.
