fee in USD per year or period of time unless one-off fee, then it is indicated. Only indicative value. Pro-rata per duration of stay.
"local operator" means usually the incumbent, historic telco provider
"probably": the information hasn't been confirmed for a while, up to the user to choose to contact regulator or not
"N/A": not applicable, for exemple if no licence is required in order to use a visiting terminal, the questions regarding conditions / time limit obviously do not apply.
"no form": means the country has not prepared an application form for these services, application should usually by made by letter to the regulator accompanied with as much info on stay and technical info as possible.
when the form answer colum G is left blank: the country has NOT replied to that question, so we do not know if the regulator has a form which has not been provided, or if there is no form at all
"unknown": some countries have not replied for a long time - it could be licence + fee or maybe only licence no fee.
"TBD" very close to "case by case" - some countries reply "it is to be determined yet" others "case by case" :in practice would mean same thing: regulator would decide when request presented.
