Rising mobile broadband penetration continues to drive Mongolia’s telecoms market

Mongolia possesses a liberalised and competitive telecoms market served by multiple competing players and an incumbent operator that no longer holds a dominant share of its market. The growing popularity of mobile broadband has underpinned overall broadband and telecoms growth. This trend is consolidating Mongolia’s position as a “mobile first” telecoms market and shaping the future direction of Mongolia’s developing digital economy.

The penetration of fixed lines in Mongolia has increased strongly over the past five years as a higher proportion of residences decide to take a fixed line access option. Penetration is however predicted to only increase slightly over the next five years to 2023.

Fixed broadband penetration in Uzbekistan remains low mainly due to a limited number of fixed lines and the dominance of the mobile platform. Fixed broadband remains an attractive proposition where it is available due to the inherent bandwidth advantages of fixed platforms compared with wireless.

Mongolia’s mobile market has experienced fairly slow growth over the past five years in a relatively mature market. Slow to moderate growth is predicted over the next five years to 2023. The market will be constrained from higher growth due to strong local competition and a further maturing market.

Mobile broadband penetration has grown very strongly over the past five years. With the launch of 4G LTE services by all the major operators, mobile broadband customers will continue to grow strongly over the next five years to 2023.

South Korea’s KT Corp completed the sale of its 40% stake in Telecom Mongolia back to the Mongolian government.

Key Developments:
  • the Mongol Sat-1 platform was launched in partnership with Asia Broadcast Satellite (ABS).
  • KT Corp completed the sale of its 40% stake in Telecom Mongolia back to the Mongolian government.
  • Over the next five years to 2023 moderate growth is expected to continue in the fixed broadband market.
  • The launch of 4G LTE services is starting to see strong uptake of mobile broadband customers.
  • MobiCom launched its first LTE-A services.
