Wireless Internet offered to Turkmens, long blocked from private access

It won’t be wrong to call a software company backbone of the IT sector. But off late this backbone has suffered major setbacks that have reflected in the overall depression that the IT sector went through. Though in many countries like the US the sector went through a downward slope in certain other countries it has managed to be stable at the plateau stage.
