Uzbekistan looks to LEO satellite connectivity as a way to fast-track high-speed broadband


Uzbekistan has given strong signals of its intention to branch out into the Lower-Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite-based telecommunications market following the signing of an MoU with wholesale-focused OneWeb as part of the first Central Eurasian Space Technology Conference in May 2022.

The agreement - signed by Uzbekistan's Agency for Space Research and Technology, known colloquially as Uzbekspace - is designed to attract the British satellite company to the Uzbek broadband market. Uzbekistan's fixed broadband and mobile broadband segments are both relatively underdeveloped, and lack critical infrastructure in remote and rural areas. Augmenting the terrestrial infrastructure with LEO satellite capabilities may be one effective way of getting around the logistical and economic challenges of delivering high-speed broadband on a widespread basis.

For its part, the Uzbekistan government agrees to examine how to resolve any regulatory issues that might prevent OneWeb from being deployed in (or over) the country.
