This section acts as a centralised repository for company information and resources relating to mobile network operators across the globe. To be listed in this section a mobile network operator must operate a physical 4G or 5G mobile network and frequencies listed depict those which the company holds spectrum licences or access rights to.

Statistics on network and band deployment are calculated by our database live and may change without notice.

Many regions across the globe have self-declared independent states, autonomous governing regions, and other partially recognised territorial claims. Mobile networks also operate and serve communities in illegally occupied territories and conflict zones. In the interest of neutrality the database lists all regions where an operator has constructed a network, regardless of political status, as we believe to omit information about services those areas may put its residents at further disadvantage.

Updates & Omissions

While our team works diligently to expand our database and keep records updated, we would appreciate letting us know if you have a suggestion or noticed an error/omission. If you would like to contribute to your company or country's listing please contact our team.

What is a Mobile Network

A Mobile Network is a system that allows users to communicate wirelessly over large geographical areas by using a series of interconnected base stations. Each base station contains large transmitters and receivers which facilitate communication between user devices. Modern day Mobile Networks can be thought of as enormous wireless internet connections, similar in many ways to a simple WiFi modem but on a much grander scale.

Mobile Network Operators (MNO's) are companies who have built and operate their own network infrastructure. This is contrasted to Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs), which are far greater in numbers, who rebrand and sell access to another company's network.

Each MNO operates one or more frequencies called carriers which, not surprisingly, are used 'carry' data through the air. Data are encoded onto a carrier frequency according to a common standard, such as 3G, 4G, or 5G. Each standard details the digital techniques used to encode the data and the antenna techniques used to transmit the carrier, along with detailing how multiple carriers can be operated together to provide greater speed.
