Chinese equipment vendor Huawei was responsible for the upgrade, supplying and installing 70 base stations and three exchanges, with a capacity for 40,000 numbers. ‘We have test-launched a CDMA-450 network in nine regions. Now that this project has been completed we can provide the whole of Uzbekistan with the service,’ Gafurbekova said. The project was financed using a loan from the Chinese Bank for Development.
