Up to now, 4,271 administrative villages have been connected by telephone service in Tibet. China Telecom has completed the one year's task with installing telephones for 3,176 administrative villages and China Mobile helps 1,095 administrative villages get telephone access.

Due to the unique geographical environment in Tibet, the constructions of phone services in villages are arduous. In 2009, China Mobile and China Telecom have installed telephones for 320 administrative villages in Tibet.
