AzQtel LLC first launched its 4G network in Azerbaijan in 2007. The following year, the company began offering high-speed Internet services based on Mobil WiMax technologies. As a result of its successful activities, AzQtel has managed to occupy a leading spot on the Azerbaijani telecommunications market within a short period of time. This proves that the company's development is heading in the right direction. AzQtel's 4G Mobile WiMAX technology is a means of wireless communication. The technology provides tremendous opportunities in terms of high-speed wireless data transmission and additional Internet services. Our current line of services aside, we are a company that is constantly growing.
