Here's the data from GPRS Easy Connect in a useful (easily parsable)

Countries are using ISO 3166 names, so translatable using iso-codes.

The "identifiers" are probably unneeded, and the "types" are probably a
bit crap (what do you think?).

We can easily get a list of supported countries, and then list the few
operators in that country in the form "name - type".
