New for September 2008 is the 2nd edition of The Worldwide Directory of Mobile Network Operators (The MNO Directory 2008).
734 mobile network operators are illustrated in over 490 pages of research. This year’s edition was completed in September 2008 following a complete update of the active operators list, extensive individual operator, regulator and mobile group research, repeated data proofing and verification stages which were also followed by further research to supplement our original research stages.
The directory is available as a four volume regional set based upon our research of 235 countries and territories. Each volume comes in PDF format deliver via e-mail directly to the end user. Licences are available for single user, 1-5 user, departmental usage and full corporate use. Departmental and corporate users are also entitled to an Excel supporting file which allows for your own data manipulation or for importing into your own systems.
Research for this edition began in July 2008 starting with a complete update of the list of active mobile network operators profiled by the directory. This saw the directory expanded from 708 operations as profiled in the May 2007 edition to the current 743 mobile networks profiled in the 2nd edition. This process was largely done by a comprehensive review of multiple telecoms news sources including 'Africa & Middle East Telecom Week' and 'Eastern Europe Telecom Week' as well as alternative mainstream resources.
When the mobile network operators list had been updated the team of telecoms researchers were tasked to profile each network again. This main research phase was completed without referring back to the 1st edition. This means that all data was sourced for the current edition and not simply copied from the old edition into the new edition. During this stage researchers interrogated operater websites, annual and interim reports, regulator data, professional bodies, parent companies, mobile groups, corporate press releases and many sources of mainstream and local media.
With the completed database, proofing, verification and enrichment stages were undertaken. Throughout this process were added subscriber data, network information and named contacts wherever possible. Individual operators and their parent companies were given the opportunity to verify their data, and there was an excellent response to this campaign, resulting in data which is not available elsewhere.
This directory profiles GSM, CDMA (cellular) and iDEN mobile network operators.
WLL operations are not included in this directory. MVNOs are profiled in an alternative directory, The MVNO Directory.
The following data points are included in the directory (information is provided where possible)

Accuracy of Data
The 2nd edition was researched from a zero starting point. This means that everything was researched from the beginning again. Doing this means that you are provided with the most up-to-date data - fresh for this edition. Professional sources were utilised for information during the data gathering process and reviewed the data for errors in house and completed a verification campaign with many network operators. The MNO Directory 1st Edition and The MVNO Directory have been warmly received by the telecoms industry. The new directory builds upon this growing reputation. Please note that Blycroft Ltd accepts no liability for any losses resulting from erroneous data.

This directory provides the names and job titles of over 3,290 individuals working within senior positions within 743 mobile networks. Predominantly the contacts are of a chief officer level with an average of over 4 contacts per profile. Job titles include President, Chairman, CEO (Chief Executive Officer), CTO (Chief Technology Officer), CFO (Chief Finance Officer), Senior and Executive Vice Presidents, Directors, Heads of Marketing, Sales, Finance, Regulation, Human Resources, Investor Relations and Public Relations. The focus has been on the most senior managers so key titles such as CEO, CTO and CFO are the best covered. Direct telephone numbers and e-mail addresses are not provided.
To assist our users’ understanding of each operation, subscriber data has been included where possible. March 2008 total subscriber data is provided for 473 operations which is based on approximately 3,289,023,000 subscribers. Although the publication was published September 2008 we have also managed to include June 2008 total subscriber data for over 300 operations made up of 2,614,844,290 subscribers. The majority of subscriber data has been sourced directly from the operators and parent companies.
We have also included data taken from our ‘Africa & Middle East Telecom Week’ and ‘Eastern Europe Telecom Week’ subscription titles as well as data based on our analysts’ market estimates. Please be aware that no subscriber data can be 100% accurate due to the different reporting policies of each individual operator and regulator.
In total for the 743 networks covered there is at least one instance of subscriber data information for 535 operations during the Q107-Q208 period (March 2007 - June 2008).
Pre-paid and post-paid data is included where it has been possible to obtain this information.
Q208 Market Position
In researching the directory the team gained a great understanding of many mobile markets and came across many operations which did not report subscriber data but due to market knowledge an estimate of their current market position as at June 2008 has been calculated. Based upon this 520 operators have been ranked upon their subscriber numbers compared to their local competition, and for most countries it has been possible to rank at least the top operators.
