According to E.Aliyev providers of Georgia access to Europe by means of Azerbaijan, "Azerbaijan joined internet by means of satellite before. That was why the speed was low. Joining fiber-optic lines provides to get the higher speed on the Internet. The experience shows that, fiber-optic backbone will also be brought to Azerbaijan in one or two years. Then Azerbaijan will join the Internet with kegobyte speed."

According to E.Aliyev subscribtion fee of 3500 manats for access to Internet has been liquidated.
