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 2006 rankings represent a doubling since the prior year in the number of companies covered, based on significant growth in the companies submitting data for the rankings.
The Independent Top Twenty ranks companies based on revenue from all satellite-related sources, but excludes companies whose primary business is satellite fleet operations. The total revenues of the Independent Top Twenty exceed $1.6 billion, with individual companies ranging from nearly a half billion dollars to under $20 million.
