26 Jan 2015

State-owned fixed line incumbent Uzbektelecom has added 390 premises in Tashkent to its fibre-to-the-building (FTTB) network, UzDaily writes. The telco’s fibre network, the deployment of which has been financed by the China Development Bank, has so far passed 3,287 premises, including 915 connected in 2014.

In a related development, the telco has cut tariffs for international bandwidth for internet service providers (ISPs) for the fourth time this year, dropping prices to USD251.94 per Mbps from USD253.74. Earlier this month, Uzbektelecom cut the price to USD259.29, before lowering the cost to USD257.42 and USD253.74. Prices for international bandwidth have been steadily falling in recent years; TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database notes that the price fell from USD1,510 per Mbps in March 2010 to USD529 by the end of 2011.
