Bakcell was recognized as the Fastest Mobile Network in Azerbaijan in 2018. This award was presented by the world-famous Ookla company for providing the most high-speed mobile Internet to users all over Azerbaijan.

In 2017, Bakcell demonstrated the 4.5 G Pro technology and 5G readiness at its stand during BakuTel 2017.
