The tag communication=mobile_phone has been used in 2 ways:

1) to specify that a feature is used for transmitting or receiving mobile phone signals. This usage is similar to the tag communication:mobile_phone=yes which is much more common according to taginfo.

2) To specify that a household communicates via mobile phone. Most uses of the tag communication=mobile_phone were added by an organized mapping activity in eastern Nepal in 2015 (taginfo chronology, overpass-turbo link), along with similar tags describing the household, with the source "Nepal Red Cross Society Survey".
