Turkmenistan Telecommunications and Broadband Reports

Turkmenistan Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Digital Media, Statistics and Analysis
Despite strong mobile growth, Turkmenistan's telecommunications market remains underdeveloped in this poor and predominantly rural country. Its telecom services were considered to be the least developed of all the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries when they took shape. Since then, poor growth in telecom services can be attributed to a large extent to the slow development of the private sector and state control over most economic activities. Efforts to move towards a more market-oriented economy have been limited.
