The first deputy min­is­ter for the de­vel­op­ment of in­for­ma­tion tech­nolo­gies and com­mu­ni­ca­tions Olimjon Umarov has an­nounced this at a con­fer­ence in Tashkent.

“By 2023, we in­tend to fully cover all set­tle­ments of the coun­try with fourth-gen­er­a­tion mo­bile com­mu­ni­ca­tions,” Umarov said.

Ac­cord­ing to him, this year more than 2 thou­sand kilo­me­ters of fiber-op­tic com­mu­ni­ca­tion lines were com­mis­sioned, more than 4 thou­sand fourth-gen­er­a­tion mo­bile com­mu­ni­ca­tion base sta­tions were in­stalled.

Among the new tasks of the min­istry, the of­fi­cial called the con­struc­tion of large data cen­ters in Bukhara and Ferghana.

“The de­vel­op­ment of broad­band ac­cess net­works is en­vis­aged and in the com­ing years it is planned to in­crease ports by 1.5 mil­lion units, as well as the con­struc­tion of more than 120 thou­sand kilo­me­ters of op­ti­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tion lines,” he said.

In ad­di­tion, Uzbek­t­ele­com said that from 2019 they would stop the de­vel­op­ment of ADSL net­works. This will be done in or­der to con­sol­i­date ef­forts to de­velop the net­work us­ing FTTx tech­nol­ogy. The com­pany plans to grad­u­ally switch sub­scribers to FTTx tech­nol­ogy to pro­vide high-qual­ity In­ter­net ser­vices to each user.

In ad­di­tion, un­til 2025, the com­pany will lay more than 220 thou­sand kilo­me­ters of op­ti­cal cable. With the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the Ja­pan Bank for In­ter­na­tional Co­op­er­a­tion (JBIC) and Su­mit­omo Mit­sui Bank­ing Cor­po­ra­tion (SMBC), the in­vest­ment projects “Ex­pan­sion of the back­bone and multi-ser­vice data net­work” and “Mod­ern­iza­tion of switch­ing cen­ters us­ing IMS tech­nol­ogy (IP Mul­ti­me­dia Sub­sys­tems)” will be im­ple­mented.

“The im­ple­men­ta­tion of the projects will make it pos­si­ble in the short­est pos­si­ble time to make the tran­si­tion of the coun­try's telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion net­works from cop­per to op­ti­cal broad­band ac­cess net­works for all re­gions of Uzbek­istan. Ex­pan­sion of the back­bone and multi-ser­vice data trans­mis­sion net­work will pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity to con­tinue work on re­duc­ing the price of In­ter­net ac­cess and in­creas­ing the con­nec­tion speed,” Uzbek­t­ele­com re­ported.
