Turkmenistan Telecommunications and Broadband Reports

Turkmenistan Telecoms Market Overview and Statistics Report
Communications services in Turkmenistan are the least developed of all the CIS countries. Poor growth in telecoms services, the slow progress in the development of the private sector and continuing state control over most economic activities have not been helpful in growing the country’s telecommunications market. Combined fixed-line and mobile teledensity was estimated at roughly 10% in 2005. The Internet is controlled by the government and access is severely restricted. Unlike most of ts neighbouring countries, Turkmenistan’s mobile market, served by one private and one state-owned operator, has been slow to grow. The Ministry of Communications continues to be both the regulator and policy maker for the telecom sector. This report looks at the overall state of telecommunications in Turkmenistan together with some relevant statistical indicators, noting that up-to-date statistics are not readily available.
