LTE Coverage Expansion in Nakhchivan

Azercell stated one noteworthy achievement is in the Autonomous Republic of Nakhchivan, where the telco commissioned over 70 new 4G base stations, resulting in a 14.1 percent increase in the coverage of the LTE Network. This expansion and network optimisation have directly contributed to a 30 percent surge in Azercell's internet traffic.
