ATLANTA, April 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cbeyond Inc. (Nasdaq:CBEY), the
technology ally to small and mid-sized businesses, has been awarded a 2013

demonstrates Cbeyond's long-term commitment to customer satisfaction during

customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction, and/or partner satisfaction.
Receiving a Confirmit ACE Award is a distinct honor that demonstrates the
recipient's rigorous application of customer feedback processes and its
outstanding performance as measured by those processes.

Cbeyond earned the Confirmit ACE Award based on its Cbeyond Sales and
Installation Survey methodology and overall customer satisfaction performance

is a testament to our commitment to delivering the best customer experience
possible," said Terry Trout, vice president, Service Delivery at Cbeyond.
"Our customer fan scores are a prime focus for our employees. We pride
ourselves on listening to our customers and continually work toward an
experience that makes our customers happy they chose Cbeyond. Since almost a
third of our business comes from referrals, we recognize that earning the
admiration of our customers takes more than simply delivering a product or
service: it requires delivering superior sales, installation and on-boarding
support."

"We are delighted to recognize Cbeyond as a customer excellence leader," said
Henning Hansen, President and CEO of Confirmit. "The Voice of the Customer is
critical in enabling businesses in competitive industries to satisfy and
retain customers, and drive business change. As an ACE Award winner Cbeyond
