NEW YORK and COSTA MESA, Calif., Aug. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ultra Mobile, a nationwide mobile carrier developing first-of-its-kind mobile phone services and unlimited international communications, has today been named Inc. Magazine's Fastest Growing Private Company in America for 2015. Over the past three years, Ultra Mobile has recorded revenue growth of 100,849 percent, with 2014 gross revenue of $118.2M, earning the company the number one ranking on the prestigious list.
Ultra Mobile focuses on cost effective talk, text and data offerings, with unlimited international calling to 60 countries. The company sells over one million SIM cards per year; available in 7,000 independent wireless stores and over 25,000 retail stores including Target, 7-Eleven and CVS. Customers can recharge their plan at over 60,000 stores.
"Our founding team is incredibly honored to be named America's fastest growing private company by Inc. Magazine," said Ultra Mobile Co-Founder and CEO, David P. Glickman. "Through our partnership with T-Mobile and our increasing reach into retail stores, we're continuing to democratize communication for millions of underserved people; that is, those who want to stay in touch with family, friends and business overseas. We are excited by this recognition and believe that this is just the beginning for Ultra Mobile."
"Like T-Mobile, Ultra is growing like gangbusters because they give their customers great value and a high-quality service on a blazing fast LTE network," said Mike Sievert, T-Mobile's Chief Operating Officer. "It's so great to see an exclusive T-Mobile partner topping the Inc. 500 this year. Congratulations to the entire Ultra Mobile team!"
While Ultra Mobile joins an incredible list of companies that have won the prestigious award, 2015 also marks the second time that Mr. Glickman, Ultra Mobile's CEO and serial entrepreneur, has taken a company to number one position. In doing so he becomes the first individual ever to bring two different companies to number one in the rankings. In 1998, Mr. Glickman's telecom business, Justice Technology, took the top spot.
