Enterprises and residential buildings in Azerbaijan's Shusha city have been provided with optical telecommunications services by Aztelecom LLC, operating under the Digital Development and Transport Ministry.
A bakery, which is the first manufacturing facility in the city, has already been connected to these services.
Currently, residents and guests of Shusha city can access broadband internet services at a speed of 30 Mb/s.
It was noted that the modern telecommunications infrastructure in liberated Shusha city is built on the basis of GPON technology (Gigabit Passive Optical Network).
The optical network with a capacity of 1000 numbers, built according to modern standards by Azetelecom, guarantees high-speed data transmission and stable internet.
Aztelecom LLC will continue to take the necessary measures to provide sustainable and uninterrupted telecommunication services as part of restoration and reconstruction work in Shusha city.
The Digital Development and Transport Ministry will gradually and systematically introduce all new generation telecommunication technologies on the liberated territories in line with the country's digital transformation policy.
