19 Jan 2021

State-owned operator AzTelekom has recently expanded coverage in the Zagatala region in order to improve the quality of telecoms services available to residents, Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Transport, Communications and High Technologies (Mincom) has announced. The company has reportedly repaired and modernised the backbone network in the region, updated the cable system, and restored or replaced telegraph poles. Engineering work was also carried out to increase capacity in the villages of Uzungazmalar, Danachi, Ashagy Tala, Gozbarah and Lahyj, while residents in the village of Suvagil can now access broadband services. The project forms part of AzTelekom’s major infrastructure upgrade programme, which has expanded telecoms networks in the regions through the modernisation of backbone and distribution networks, and the construction of new automated exchanges in remote areas of the country.
