DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - August 1, 2008) - IP5280 Communications, Colorado's business VoIP specialists, announced today that the company has placed among the top 10 "Best Companies to Work for in Colorado."

The rankings in the medium-sized business category were announced at an awards luncheon Thursday at the Sewell Ballroom at the Denver Center for Performing Arts.

"We're extremely pleased our employees and customers helped make this award possible for our Colorado VoIP company," said Jeffrey Pearl, managing partner and co-founder of IP5280. "In only our third year of business, our aggressive VoIP rollout, our fun working environment and expert sales team have successfully transitioned hundreds of Denver businesses from their old phone service to our more affordable and feature-rich Internet phone service."

Part of IP5280's fun work environment includes participation in several employee-driven charities, including Climbing for Kids and the Plant-It 2020 tree re-planting initiative, accoding to John Scarborough, managing partner and co-founder of IP5280.

The Best Companies Group, assisted by ModernThink, LLC, conducted an assessment of participating companies that was a two-part process designed to gather detailed data about each company.
