Azerbaijan Telecommunications and Broadband Reports

Azerbaijan Telecoms Market Overview and Statistics Report
The Azerbaijan economy has been markedly stronger in recent years and, not surprisingly, the country is making progress in developing its telecoms sector. Nonetheless, it still faces problems. These include poor infrastructure and an immature telecom regulatory regime. The Ministry of Communications & Information Technologies (MCIT), as well as being an operator through its role in Aztelekom, is both a policy-maker and regulator. A boom in oil and gas exports has boosted the economy, reducing the country’s dependence on international aid. This report looks at the overall telecom market and includes some statistics, noting that up-to-date statistics for some sectors of the market are difficult to obtain. Market forecasts are also included in this report.

April 2019 Review

Energy-rich, this former Soviet republic is rich with massive energy windfalls. It is one of the post-Soviet petrostates - more than half of Azerbaijan’s current GDP and 90 percent of its exports are accounted for by oil and gas.

QTEL Global is currently developing wireless networks in Georgia and Azerbaijan. With QTEL technology, Azerbaijan will be able to deliver new and innovative Internet access, VoIP and multimedia services with greater speed to its Internet users. In Q4 2006, the Internet service provider (ISP), a division of Asia Telecom Ltd., began the construction of its own data transmission network and placement of DSLAM equipment for the assignment ADSL (Broadband) services in Baku city, Azerbaijan, according to Asian Telecom press release.

As of the end of Q4 - 2006, the company has laid a significant portion of the planned 200 km of fiber-optical cable. The completion of this project is scheduled for the end of February 2007. CEO Ayaz Karimov stated: "This initiative in Azerbaijan, and others like this, will serve to solidify our position as a significant player in the Central Asian market for dial-up, ADSL and related services." The Internet service provider (ISP) division of Asia Telecom Ltd. started operations in June 2005 as a provider of dial-up and ADSL services in the territory of Azerbaijan. This division today manages at least 18% of the dial-up market in Azerbaijan and recently began providing ADSL (Broadband) services in Q4 of 2006.

Unfortunately there are signs of pre-war tension between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Some believe that Russia's possible withdrawal from the Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE) Treaty will allow it to transfer more armaments to Armenia. "This problem is bound to affect Azerbaijan - its conventional arms are regulated by the same treaty, and it is in a state of war with Armenia... Moscow already has a military base in Armenia and undisclosed amounts of arms on occupied Azeri lands. It is easy to see what arsenals Moscow can redeploy to Armenia if it withdraws from the CFE treaty." Local observers have qualified reports about American military bases in Azerbaijan as a "provocation to Moscow."(Echo, February 24.)
