Top Teleport Operators
Once made up solely of independent operators of ground segment, the teleport sector now includes national and internal fiber carriers, satellite carriers, technology providers, systems integration companies and specialized service providers. Nevertheless, innovative independents remain the core of the teleport sector and are frequently pioneers in developing new markets and introducing new applications.
The Independent Top Ten ranking is based on total revenue from all sources but, unlike the Global Top Ten, excludes companies whose primary business is satellite fleet operations. Of the companies that provided data to the 2005 Top Operators process, 33% own their own satellites, while 67% do not. The total revenues of the Independent Top Ten are nearly US$1.2 billion, with individual companies ranging from hundreds of millions of dollars to under $20 million.
