Cluster 1 may be divided into two groupings: (a) SBC Communications, Vodafone, Verizon and KDDI, and (b) NTT, British Telecom, AT&T and Japan Telecom. The second group had four companies with Telecom Italia, France Telecom, Deutsch Telecom and Sprint that were tightly clustered. This group may be considered as the European group. The third group was the Japan-US-Europe hybrid group consisting of WorldCom, Telefonica, Telstra, BellSouth, Qwest, NTT DoCoMo and KPN. Cluster 3 may be divided into two groupings: (a) WorldCom, Telefonica and Telstra, and (b) BellSouth, Qwest, NTT DoCoMo and KPN. The fourth group had six companies. It is a wireless telecommunication-based group including Cable & Wireless, China Telecom, Orange, BCE, TELMEX and AT&T Wireless. Cluster 4 may be divided into three groupings: (a) Cable & Wireless, China Telecom and Orange, (b) BCE and TELMEX, and (c) AT&T Wireless. There were not any isolates that were not members of one of the four clusters.
