From Mongol Studies Online Reference
Mobile phones in Mongolia are becoming increasingly popular, since the technology is well suited to the low population density, lack of landline infrastructure, and nomadic lifestyle of many citizens. As of 2006 there were roughly 775,300 mobile phone subscribers, up from 225,000 in 2002.
The mobile phone companies use a combination of government infrastructure owned by the Mongolian Telecommunications Authority (MTA) and Railcom, and facilities they have built themselves. Mobile communication technologies are regulated by the Communications Regulatory Commission (CRC)
