Operator profiles for this directory are a merging of 4 technology profiles into 1 company profile. Where a company operates more than 1 type of network the researchers have merged this information to form 1 profile (instead of multiple entries for a single company). This means that 455 operations as identified by the directory are conveniently presented as 381 company profiles. Some duplicated entries have been kept due to significant differences in how operations are managed or owned. For instance, a state may have retained sole ownership of their fixed line network and have sold off a significant share of their mobile network.
Please note that data has been used from the 4 directories and represents the company at the time of the individual directory publications. Information from newer directories supersedes that of the earlier directories.

- Brand name(s)
- Company name
- Services offered (MNO, WiMAX, MVNO, Fixed)
- Tel / Fax (main switchboards)
- Management contacts
- Network information
- Mobile subscriber statistics (MNOs)
All data, including subscriber data is provided on a where possible basis and is provided to assist in building a profile of each operations.
