Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan Telecommunications Report 2017

BMI View: The state plays a pivotal role in overseeing telecoms sector development in Turkmenistan andUzbekistan. Both countries' governments state they are keen to improve communications services and havemooted privatisations of state-owned incumbents, but each market has proved difficult for foreign investors.Veon (formerly Vimpelcom) and Telia are under investigation for corruption in Uzbekistan while MTS hashad a troubled history in both markets and exited Uzbekistan in August 2016. On a more positive note,Uzbekistan's Ministry for Development of Information Technologies and Communication announced plansin December 2015 to invest USD883.7mn over the coming four years in nine investment projects. This is inline with efforts to enhance broadband access by 2020. Meanwhile, in Turkmenistan's much lesscompetitive telecoms market, the government has established a new closed joint-stock company calledAshgabat Shaher Telefon Ulgamy (ASTU, or Ashgabat Urban Telephone Network) which offers ADSL andIPTV services in the capital Ashgabat.
