For the first time this new directory looks at both the traditional wireless carrier market and the mobile virtual network and reseller markets which have made massive in-roads to the Western European and North American markets. Contained within the directory are 712 mobile network operators and 255 mobile virtual network operators and resellers. In total you will find details of 967 operations spread across the world in almost every country.

Our researchers have examined thousands of corporate, media and trade websites, government and regulator data files, official company press releases, financial statements, annual reports and made direct contact with operators on a global basis to enable us to produce this combined directory.

The directory comes as a PDF delivered via e-mail and is available on licence for 1-5 named users, whole departments or on a corporate level which would allow for the PDF to be placed on a corporate Intranet.

Data for the directory has been extracted from both Blycroft’s Worldwide Directory of Mobile Network Operators 2007 (published May 2007 and research H1 2007) and The MVNO Directory 2008 (published November 2007 and research September 2007). All research was completed in house.

Our main sources of data have been the individual operations and their parent companies plus telecommunication groups if appropriate. This process consisted of the examining and documenting of thousands of websites, annual reports and end of quarter financial statements, company press releases, corporate brochures and archives. Regulatory, government and trade organisation publications and websites were also examined along with trade media publications and archives, including our own title, Africa and The Middle East Telecom Week. We also consulted directly with many operations.
