dc.description.abstract<p>The overall objective of this study is to identify country specific needs for broadband communication in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan with a view to developing a regional broadband network and to providing data and information to relevant stakeholders for further examination and discussion on this matter.</p> <p>This study assesses the overall ICT development in the selected countries with a focus on the telecommunication sector and examined key ICT policy and regulatory frameworks which have impacts on the<br />development of a regional and national broadband network. It also collected data and information on Internet and broadband usage and attempted to forecast future growth as an indication of a need for a regional broadband network.</p> <p>The report finds that broadband telecommunication networks have been planned and developed in the four countries during the last few years and the number of broadband subscribers is increasing steadily in some countries and slowly in others. In general, the mobile market was found to be the key driver of growth of the overall telecoms market. Demand for Internet access has also shown high growth, with broadband access becoming increasingly popular. With increased demand for bandwidth of international channels, providing connectivity to the Internet seems to be growing accordingly.</p> <p>Based on the findings, identified challenges and opportunities, the report also made concrete recommendations mainly on the need for strengthening regional cooperation for the development of such a broadband network among countries in the sub-region.</p>
