ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cbeyond, Inc. (NASDAQ:CBEY, news, filings) (www.cbeyond.net/smb), a leading provider of IT and communications services to small businesses, today announced it has been selected as a 2011 Georgia Fast 40 Company by the Atlanta chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth® (ACG Atlanta).
