In this first edition the researchers had to compile a list of domestic fixed line operators. Criteria for inclusion were that the operator had to own a fixed line network over which it provides telecommunication services within a country. This criterion excludes operators engaged solely in international traffic handling (such as submarine cable operators), leased cost routing, WLL only services and mobile (including virtual) network operators. The result is a database which in the main contains fixed line networks operating services over copper lines or fibre optic networks.
Once the research list had been created the researchers set about gathering the data for each profile. This process consists of mainly reviewing online materials available from and about the operator being profiled, its parent organisations, telecommunications regulators and government bodies as well as reviewing industry resources such as research services, news articles and press releases by both operators and vendors.
The researchers rely on information provided by operators, parent companies and regulators being accurate. Therefore Blycroft can not be held liable for any inaccuracy in the directory or associated losses where data is found to be incorrect. By purchasing the directory all buyers accept this term and acknowledge that churn within management functions occurs. In researching the contact information customer service contacts have been used in a few instances where no alternative contact information could be found.
