Ok then I only answered your question for GPS. For GSM I register to 
dbus signal:
This may contain optional fields such as MCC, MNC, lac, cid, etc.

I had a look at the monitor interface. It interests me for the neighbour 
cells use for increasing the accuracy of the positioning. But otherwise 
it lacks anyway the MCC, and MNC. To be sure of the tuple I log, I 
prefer to get everything in a single shot. Moreover, I prefer to receive 
signals instead of calling monitor methods every time I want to log 
something, I guess this saves CPU, thus power.
