The World Teleport Association's 2008 Top Teleport Operators league has placed Globecast ahead of Arqiva, its chief rival in the UK market.

The list is compiled by asking teleport operators about their facilities, services and business results.

Globecast ranked sixth in the Global Top Twenty, beating Arqiva into ninth, and came second in a ranking of the Independent Top Twenty, which excludes satellite owner-operators, one place ahead of Arqiva.
