Monthly data us­age of cel­lu­lar data users in 2015 was 1,098 ter­abytes. In 2017, the monthly us­age in­creased to 2,544 ter­abytes. LTE data us­age in 2017 to­taled 11,533 ter­abytes. In the first month of 2017, monthly LTE data us­age was only 403 ter­abytes. By the end of 2017, it had risen to 1,679 ter­abytes per month.

The num­ber of cus­tomers of telecommunications com­pa­nies reached 3.8 mil­lion at the end of 2017. This is a 14 per­cent in­crease com­pared to the pre­vi­ous year. The fact that the num­ber of telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion cus­tomers has sur­passed the pop­u­la­tion of Mon­go­lia means that one per­son uses more than one phone or phone num­ber.

Of the 3.8 mil­lion cus­tomers, 2.4 mil­lion use smart­phones and 2.6 mil­lion use cel­lu­lar data. The num­ber of cell phone users in­creased 2.3 fold since 2009 and the num­ber of smart­phone users in­creased by 3.5 per­cent since 2016.
