Library of ISO 3166, MCC and MNC codes

Project Description

Contains the country codes from ISO 3166-1 based on the code based on:

But also has the MCC and MNC codes based on the Wikipedia page:

As well as the latest released listing from ITU:

Note that MCC codes for a country can be:

  • None (no MCC code)
  • a string (where a country has one code)
  • a tuple of strings (where a country has more than one code)


$ pip install mobile-codes


>>> import mobile_codes

Lookup by Mobile Country Code (MCC):

>>> mobile_codes.mcc("648")
[Country(name=u'Zimbabwe', alpha2='ZW', alpha3='ZWE', numeric='716', mcc='648')]
>>> mobile_codes.mcc("311")
[Country(name=u'Guam', alpha2='GU', alpha3='GUM', numeric='316', mcc=('310', '311')),
 Country(name=u'United States', alpha2='US', alpha3='USA', numeric='840', mcc=('310', '311', '313', '316'))]
>>> mobile_codes.mcc("313")
[Country(name=u'United States', alpha2='US', alpha3='USA', numeric='840', mcc=('310', '311', '313', '316'))]

Lookup by name, alpha2, alpha3 (all case insensitive):

>>> mobile_codes.alpha3("CAN")
Country(name=u'Canada', alpha2='CA', alpha3='CAN', numeric='124', mcc='302')
>>> mobile_codes.alpha2("CA")
Country(name=u'Canada', alpha2='CA', alpha3='CAN', numeric='124', mcc='302')
Country(name=u'Canada', alpha2='CA', alpha3='CAN', numeric='124', mcc='302')

Lookup operators by mcc (returns a list of all operators):

>>> mobile_codes.operators('302')
[Operator(mcc='302', mnc='220', brand='Telus', operator=u'Telus'),
 Operator(mcc='302', mnc='221', brand='Telus', operator=u'Telus'),...

Lookup operator by mcc and Mobile Network Code (MNC):

>>> mobile_codes.mcc_mnc('722', '070')
Operator(mcc='722', mnc='070', brand='Movistar', operator=u'Movistar')

All lookups raise a KeyError if the requested value is not found.


If you want to do development on the library, follow these steps:

  • Create a virtualenv
  • bin/pip install -r requirements/tests.txt
  • bin/nosetests -s mobile_codes
