World’s largest mobile phone companies

Russell points to Wikipedia’s list of top ten mobile companies in the world. (These numbers don’t match the data from ITU (thanks Robert) which puts companies like TeliaSonera at #10 spot with 22.5 million subscribers. Also missing America Movil with 60 million subscribers.) Not many surprises there, though I was amazed to find out that China Mobile is the largest on the planet. Vodafone comes in second. By the way, by end of the year, the list is going through a lot of changes – incoming Bharti Telecom of India which already has 12.25 million subscribers, and is adding about a million or so every quarter. Reliance Infocomm has 10 million CDMA customers. BSNL, a government owned Indian cellular service has 8.5 million subscribers. Indonesian carriers are going to join the top ten list as well. via # and #
