A new year and new decade, and with these milestones, so it is that the World Teleport Association (WTA) published its annual rankings for the Top Teleport Operators of 2019. The annual rankings of companies by revenue and revenue growth are compiled by surveying teleport operators around the world as well as referencing the published results of publicly-held companies.

Executive director Robert Bell said that the teleport and space sector are undergoing rapid change today, which is stressing all business models and driving a breakneck pace of innovation and adaptation. The average teleport spent 77 percent of its revenue on satellite capacity in 2013; this year, it was 45 percent. As connectivity is commoditized, the search is on for higher levels of value to deliver to customers.

In May 2020, WTA will publish its annual Inside the Top Operators report that will provide a more detailed analysis of survey results.
