“I have been an industry analyst in the wire line, wireless, Internet and television space for roughly 25 years and have watched this list grow and change.

This is an exciting industry, but staying relevant is always key.” Says Telecom analyst Kagan.

“While this is a great honor, it is also based on looking backwards over the last year. The next big question on everyone's mind is who will be the leaders going forward over the next year. That’s the question we will be following going forward.” Says Kagan.
