The Information Technology 100
This wireless operator sells Nextel's walkie talkie-like phones in midsized markets from the Florida Panhandle to the Hawaiian Islands. Nextel Communications established this company in 1998 as an affiliate and retains a 32% ownership stake. Nextel Partners has plenty of room to grow in these new markets. Revenues over the last 12 months rose by 31%, to $1.46 billion.
After Nextel's pending merger with Sprint, Nextel Partners shareholders can vote to meld their company into the larger one.
