Baku. Nijat Mustafayev – APA-Economics. By the end of this year, Azerbaijan’s leading mobile operator Azercell Telecom predicts to achieve a 14.3% rise in its subscriber base to 4 million from 2.5 million now.
The company said it is technically ready to introduce 3G technology.
“We are anticipating the Ministry of Communications and Information Technologies to grant a 3G license. We will make available 3G services as soon as we receive the license,” the company told APA-Economics.
The technology behind 3G makes cellular networks more efficient and powerful, opening up a world of new possibilities.
Network operators & telecommunications service providers are embracing the recently adopted global third generation wireless standards in order to cater to emerging user demands and to offer new services to their customers. 3G wireless technology represents a shift from voice-centric services to multimedia-oriented like video, voice and data. The most interesting & useful aspect of 3G wireless technology is its ability to unify existing cellular standards such as GSM, CDMA and TDMA.
The ITU recommendations for the IMT2000 standard for next-generation services are envisaged at a data rate of 2Mbit/s through the 2GHz band as set aside in most country.
Azercell Telecom has been in operation since 1996.
Three mobile operators service in total 5.6 million subscribers in the country.
