Mobile Country Code is part of the International Mobile Subscriber Identity
- WiMAX networks, a globally unique Broadband Operator ID can be derived from the MCC/MNC tuple.
- TETRA networks use the mobile Country Code from ITU-T Recommendation E.212 together with a 10-bit binary mobile network code. However, a TETRA network may be assigned an E.212 network code as well. Some network operators do not have their own radio access network at all. These are called mobile virtual network operators (MVNO) and are marked in the tables as such. Note that MVNOs without their own MCC/MNC (that is, they share the MCC/MNC of their host network) are not listed here.
Mobile Country Code consists of 3 decimal digits and the Mobile Network Codes consists of 2 or 3 decimal digits (for example: MNC of 001 is not the same as MNC of 01).
The first digit of the mobile country code identifies the geographic region as follows (the digits 1 and 8 are NOT used):
- 0 - Test networks
- 2 - Europe
- 3 - North America and the Caribbean
- 4 - Asia and the Middle East
- 5 - Oceania
- 6 - Africa
- 7 - South and Central America
- 9 - World-wide (Satellite, Air - aboard aircraft, Maritime - aboard ships, Antarctica)
