Sunnyvale, Calif. – September 15, 2009 – Actiontec Electronics has been honored by Broadband Properties magazine being included in its Top 100 Companies for 2009. This is the second straight year Actiontec has been named to this prestigious list that showcases the companies making a difference in the fiber broadband industry.

Broadband Properties, the leading source of information on digital and broadband technologies for buildings and communities, compiles the list each year taking into account a few key innovative areas around advanced broadband networks. The Top 100 companies include those deploying fiber networks, introducing innovative technologies, and supplying key hardware, software, and design and construction services.

“It is truly an honor just to be considered for this list and being included two years running is a testament to our goal of providing broadband-powered solutions that simplify and enrich the digital life,” said Brian Henrichs, chief business development officer at Actiontec. “As consumers’ demand for rich broadband services increases, we are continually striving to provide innovative, reliable and high quality products to stay well ahead of the curve.”

Actiontec’s advances over the last year were recognized by Broadband Properties.
