All Uzbek operators allowed direct international internet channel access by 2020

28 Sep 2018

All operators in Uzbekistan are to be allowed direct access to international internet channels by 2020, under a Presidential initiative contained in the road map of the Strategy for Innovative Development of the Republic of Uzbekistan (2019-2021), UzDaily reported. Currently, national state-owned telco Uzbektelecom provides operators with access to international internet gateways, but the road map states that by 1 January 2020 a legal act will be implemented including measures to liberalise international access, with the expectation that this will lead to reductions in prices for local internet end users.
