MegaFon Tajikistan expands LTE and fibre broadband coverage

24 Oct 2022

MegaFon Tajikistan reports that it deployed 480 new base stations on its mobile network in the first nine months of 2022, over 400 of which were 4G LTE units, taking its total base stations in service to around 3,000. In addition, the operator upgraded 80 existing base stations to 4G in the capital Dushanbe in 9M22. Average mobile data speeds at the beginning of October were disclosed as reaching 37Mbps in the Rudaki region, 30Mbps in Tursunzade and 27Mbps in Gissar, notably faster than the average in Dushanbe (‘20Mbps-23Mbps’) where the load on the network is typically higher. Average speed in the city of Khorog was improved to approximately equal that of the capital.

MegaFon also reported that its fibre broadband ‘Internet For Home’ service – launched in Dushanbe in November 2021 – currently connects customers in 200 apartment buildings in the city. More than 90 of these buildings are located in a densely populated area along N. Karabaev Avenue. In most districts of the city, MegaFon can extend its fibre connections to new customers if at least five households in an apartment block pre-order its services. The company has laid over 100km of fibre in Dushanbe, and has also begun to act on its promise to extend fixed broadband services elsewhere, with several apartment buildings in Bokhtar connected to Internet For Home.
