By Huseyn Hasanov– Trend:
Turkmenistan's national mobile operator Altyn Asyr (TM CELL) is introducing the all around coverage of Turkmenistan with mobile communications, including 3G, 4G standards, Turkmen media reported.
The national operator received 100 base stations for deploying mobile communications in the territory of Ahal, Balkan and Dashoguz provinces of Turkmenistan.
New equipment has been purchased at the comany's own expense. Starting from 2019, base stations will be purchased using a credit line allocated by the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) for the implementation of a large-scale project “Development of telecommunication networks of Turkmenistan”.
Within the framework of the project, Altyn Asyr plans to ensure widespread introduction of this type of communication in Turkmenistan, including 3G, 4G, and in the near future 5G-speed Internet and other services.
To this end, it is planned to purchase more than 600 units of broadcasting equipment. More than 120 base stations will be set in the capital city, Ashgabat.
