ISWest Continues to Astonish Analysts and Nabs 5th Consecutive Fastest Growing Technology Award

AGOURA HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - October 4, 2007) - Marking its fifth year in a row, award-winning Internet service provider ISWest has been named one of the top 50 fastest growing technology companies in Los Angeles in 2007 by Deloitte, one of the nation's leading professional services firms.

The company has placed five consecutive times on Deloitte's Fast 50, which ranks the 50 fastest growing technology firms in Southern California. This year ISWest ranked 40th with an average grow rate of 112.4%. Less than one-third of companies make the Top 50 five years in a row.

ISWest growth has been attributed to providing outstanding customer service and unprecedented value. Over the past several years ISWest has also made a few key acquisitions including six additional ISPs, making ISWest the largest Business Internet service provider in Ventura County, and Southern California's Non-Stop ISP. ISWest is projecting a huge upswing in growth over the next five years as it ramps up a brand new sales team under the leadership of Joey Cary, V.P. of Sales and launches its brand new Data Center expansion project along the 101 corridor.

"To rank on Deloitte's Technology Fast 50, companies must have phenomenal revenue growth over five years. ISWest has proven to be one of the fast-growth success stories in the Los Angeles area, and we applaud their dedication to making their vision a reality," says Tony Buzzelli, Vice Chairman and Regional Managing Partner, Pacific Southwest Region, Deloitte & Touche LLP.

"We play to win," Kaplan said. "Success has come easy for ISWest because we give real customer service, not lip service. A lot of companies say they offer the best customer service in the business, but very few can actually live up to it. A recent survey by an outside organization determined 92% of our customers would absolutely recommend ISWest to a friend or business associate. That's a number we are very proud of and will continually strive to improve."
