In Uzbekistan, number of Internet users exceeds 20 million

Over the year of 2017, the number of Internet users in this country increased by 5.3 million, and today it exceeds 20 million.

Last year, the Uzbektelekom joint-stock company implemented a number of projects to satisfy growing requirements for Internet access services.

Today, a priority task in the development of the country’s telecommunication networks is to introduce advanced information communication technologies in distant regions of the country. And therefore, Uzbektelekom is carrying out a range of measures to develop telecommunications in regions of the country.

Modern fibre-optic technologies are being introduced. More than 2 thousand km of fibre-optic communication lines were laid last year alone. Their overall length is 22.3 thousand km now.
