It seems that the days of Borat are over: state of the art fiber infrastructure is being deployed into the homes of Astana, the capital city. Not much is known about this project except that the infrastructure is an Alcatel Lucent GPON and that the operator is incumbent operator Kazakhtelecom.
According to the press release over on Telecom TV Kazakhtelecom intends to launch IPTV and VoD in addition to high-speed internet. What I'd like to know is to whom and how many customers are being targeted. If you know any more than I do about this deployment, please let me know, I'm interested!
