Philosophy & Methodology
It is our philosophy that if you need the numbers then you need the right numbers. The information we provide is:

We track the industry and update our data on a daily basis, making use of all available sources - including press releases, periodic reports, investor presentations, stock market filings, government statistics and regulatory reviews, not to mention our network of invaluable contacts throughout the industry.

We employ a unique colour-coding system giving all our data unrivalled accountability and transparency, with an audit trail back to source in every case. We stand by the data we provide and are happy to discuss the provenance of our figures, and the methodology behind them, at any time.

Our service is not limited to a set range of benchmark metrics; instead we include all available metrics for all operators and markets across the world, for unprecedented granularity. In addition our metrics are precisely labelled in order to give transparency to how each KPI is calculated, and to expose and explain definitional differences between operators.

Our data is structured, interpreted, input and verified by expert analysts, with 35 years experience in the mobile sector. We do not employ data-entry personnel and we do not outsource. Even with over 7 million individual datapoints we take pride in the accuracy of every single figure we provide.

We keep fully abreast of all the latest developments across the world, ensuring that these are accurately and honestly represented in the data we provide at all times. The result is a service which is relied upon by some of the best known financial institutions, operators, vendors and consulting firms to help make decisions that shape and drive their business.
