For the 2nd Time, GeoLinks
Appears on the Inc. 5000, Ranking No. 786 overall and No. 1 Telecom in
California With Three-Year Revenue Growth of 635
Percent

Inc. magazine today revealed that GeoLinks
is No. 786 on its 37th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of
the nation's fastest-growing private companies. Furthermore, GeoLinks
ranked in the top three Fastest Growing WISPs in America and the No. 1
Fastest Growing Telecom in California. The list represents a unique look
at the most successful companies within the American economy's most
dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell,
Domino's Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many
other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees
on the Inc. 5000.

"According to Inc. Media Editor in Chief, James Ledbetter, of the tens
of thousands of companies that have applied to Inc. 5000 over the years,
only a fraction have made the list more than once," said GeoLinks' CEO
Skyler Ditchfield. "A mere one-in-three have made the list two times,
and I am both proud and humbled that GeoLinks can officially claim the
honor of once again being the largest fastest-growing ISP on the Inc.
5000. This is all further motivation to continue large scale growth to
support our mission of closing the US digital divide. Looking forward,
we plan to continue to focus on hypergrowth to close this gap, thus,
everyone can expect to see GeoLinks here for many years to come."

Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 (which are listed
online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September
issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 15) been very
competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows
staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved
an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent and a median
rate of 171.8 percent; GeoLinks smashed the average at 635 percent. The
Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for
664,095 jobs over the past three years.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an
interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other
criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

"If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it's unparalleled recognition of
your years of hard work and sacrifice," says Inc. editor in chief James
Ledbetter. "The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay.
What doesn't change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the
forces that shape our lives."

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be
held October 17 to 19, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country
Resort, in San Antonio, Texas. As always, speakers include some of the
greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.

Methodology

The 2018 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when
comparing 2014 and 2018. To qualify, companies must have been founded
and generating revenue by March 31, 2014. They had to be U.S.-based,
privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or
divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2017. (Since then, a
number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The
minimum revenue required for 2014 is $100,000; the minimum for 2017 is
$2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for
subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.'s
