MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 20, 2007) - Radialpoint, the leading provider of managed Internet services to the world's largest ISPs, has been ranked among the Deloitte Technology Fast 50, a ranking of the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in Canada.

Radialpoint's CEO, Hamnett Hill, credits the company's strong customer orientation and its talented workforce as key contributors to its ongoing success. "Our unique managed Internet services approach has created some of the most successful, consumer-friendly online programs in market today. With over 22 million addressable subscribers, and some of the world's largest ISPs as partners, we have amassed an unmatched track record and expertise in the industry. We are pleased to be recognized as a Deloitte Technology Fast 50 company for the second year in a row."

"Canadian technology companies have some of the highest revenue growth in North America, while playing in some of the world's largest, most competitive and exciting market sectors," adds Mr. Ruffolo. "Outstanding companies such as Radialpoint demonstrate the incredible business acumen and entrepreneurial spirit that fuel the Canadian technology industry."

To qualify for the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 ranking, companies must have been in business for at least five years, have revenues of at least $5 million, be headquartered in Canada, own proprietary technology, and conduct research and development activities in Canada.
