Cellular Operators

North Korea has not fully adopted mainstream internet technology because of its isolationist policy. Until November 2011, no mobile phones can dial into or out of the country, and there is also no Internet connection. According to some Internet resources there is only cellular operator in North Korea - Koryolink (owned by OTH (75%) and Korea Post & Telecommunications Trading Corporation (KPTC) (25%)). But, unfortunately, it has no website to check its tariff plans and services.

They say in North Korea handsets cost around 50 euros or 64.44$ and as for basic monthly subscription it costs 900 KPW, which is about 6.64$ at the official exchange rate and less than half of that at street exchange rate. It is unclear what is available for that basic charge.
