Azerbaijan’s leading wholesale telecommunications operator, AzerTelecom, and Kazakhstan’s Transtelecom have agreed to cooperate with telecom operators in Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan within the Trans Caspian Fiber Optic (TCFO) project.
The project is aimed at constructing a fibre-optic cable line along the bottom of the Caspian Sea between Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan. It was launched in late 2019.
As part of the CIS GCCM 2021 Conference held in Nur-Sultan last week, AzerTelecom and Transtelecom signed two memorandums of cooperation — one with Telegraph 42 Management Gmbh, represented in Uzbekistan, and another with ElKat, represented in neighbouring Kyrgyzstan.
“We believe that in light of the increase in Internet consumption all over the world, this large-scale digital project will contribute to the development of the telecommunications industry in the region, as well as the expansion of business between countries and companies,” chairman of the board of directors at AzerTelecom, Fuad Allahverdiyev, said at the conference.
