Fast Twenty of 2006
Share |

Top Teleport Operators

The Fast 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 Fast Twenty ranks all teleport-operating companies based on year-over-year revenue growth in their most recent fiscal years. Revenues of the Fast Twenty are nearly US$4.8 billion. This year, the Fast Twenty includes the world's two top satellite carriers - Intelsat and SES Global - whose acquisition-driven growth vaulted them into the top tier. Revenue growth averaged 70% among the Fast Twenty and ranged from a phenomenal 380% for Skyport International of Houston, Texas, USA to under 20%.
