Ministry to revamp telecoms licensing

4 Jan 2006

Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) says it is planning to revamp the country’s licensing regime, with the telecoms market its priority. The MCIT currently issues 30 different types of concession, but just one to cover the provision of all telecoms services. It will now draw up proposals to offer separate, differently priced, licences for varying communications services. There are currently ten licensed telecoms providers in Azerbaijan.
