Frequency ranges 900/1800 MHz in Uzbekistan services mobile operators LLC "Unitel" (Beeline), LLC "COSCOM" (Ucell), national operator "UzMobile" Uzbektelecom and LLC "Universal Mobile Systems" (UMS). The frequency at these bands is fully distributed between the operators and there no any free frequency bands.
However, the operators had different volumes of radio frequencies, according to the IT Ministry.
Such distribution of frequency impedes the implementation of 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) standard.
The small volume of frequencies in several operators also led to discrepancy between the quality of cellular services to the established requirements.
With this in mind, the Republican Council for radio frequencies (RCRF) with the purpose of increasing the efficiency of use of radio frequency resource in the Republic has made a decision about the redistribution of radio frequencies in the bands 900 / 1800 MHz in the same volume among all operators.
This solution provides equal competitive conditions for access to the radio spectrum and creates conditions for efficient use of radio frequencies to accelerate the introduction of LTE technology, improving the quality of cellular services in the country.
