"In this report, the Arab Advisors Group investigated the content aggregators that provide mobile operators operating in the Arab World with content." Ms. Hadeel Sakkijha, Arab Advisors' Senior Research Analyst wrote in the report, "Content aggregators usually conclude contracts with the operators to have short codes or numbers which the subscribers call or send SMS to in order to subscribe to the service. Operators and/or content providers bear the marketing expenditure of promoting the short codes or numbers depending on the agreement between the two parties. The operators charge the subscribers for the services requested. Both, the operator and the content provider share the revenues of the services upon the agreement. The revenue sharing ranges from operator to another and from content provider to another", Miss Hadeel Sakkijha added.
