Independent Top Twenty of 2007
Top Teleport Operators
The Independent Top Twenty rankings are based on information submitted by companies as well as the published accounts of publicly-held corporations. The rankings include only companies that own and operate teleports and that generate at least 60% of revenues from satellite applications, unless those companies provided a breakout of satellite-related revenues to WTA, in which case its ranking is based on the reported satellite-related revenue.
The Independent Top Twenty ranks companies based on revenue from all sources, but excludes companies whose core business is ownership and operation of a satellite fleet or terrestrial network. These twenty companies have focused relentlessly on innovation and value delivery. The total revenues of the Independent Top Twenty exceed $2.2 billion, with individual companies ranging from over a half billion dollars to under $20 million.
