For many years the countries of Middle Asia, including Uzbekistan were working on optimizing and modernizing communication systems. In recent past Uzbekistan still had limited choice of mobile operators with poor quality of Internet and no Wi-Fi hotspots. Today, the situation has changed and there are plans to continue the development of the telecom market.
Internet access is now available mostly in touristic centres and large cities. A small coverage area can be rather uncomfortable. Let us forget about virtual reality and enjoy the beauty of ancient architecture and culture offline.
