Azerbaijans fixed broadband sector continues with moderate growth
After the oil sector, the telecommunications industry is the largest sector in Azerbaijan, and a major contributor to the countrys economy. Government-owned Aztelekom has been the countrys main telecom service provider, being directly controlled by the Ministry of Communications and High Technologies (MCHT). In 2017 AzTelekom revealed plans to introduce fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband in an upgrade to its existing ADSL network.
Azerbaijans fixed-line network provides good national coverage and subscriber numbers were expanding at a modest rate up to 2014. However by during 2015, 2016 and 2017growth had flattened. Just over 80% of fixed lines are in urban areas, despite 50% of the population living in rural areas.
The mobile market in Azerbaijan has seen moderate growth over the past few years. Market penetration has increased from 107% in 2013, to over 110% by 2017. Further moderate growth is predicted over the next five years to 2021.
There are four major mobile operators in the Azerbaijan market. Azercell dominates the market. Bakcell and Azerofon account for the majority of the remainder of the market.
