Access to email and the Internet is much less prevalent in Tajikistan than in many areas of the world.  Many local companies have just one email address, typically registered on the free .ru domain, and their email is checked by a secretary or other designated person on an intermittent basis.
 
Seven first-tier companies provide Internet services in Tajikistan. 


As of June 2015, these companies are:
 
Babilon-T - http://www.babilon-t.tj 
Tojnet - http://www.tojnet.tj/
Intercom - http://www.intercom.tj 
Eastera - http://www.eastera.tj 
TARENA - http://www.tarena.tj 
Saturn Online - http://www.saturn.tj  
Tcell - http://www.tcell.tj/en/  
 
The Tajik government estimated 3.81 million Tajik citizens used the Internet as of 2014.  An estimated 46 percent of Tajiks have regular access to the Internet either at home, work, school, Internet cafes, or by other means – including through mobile devices, which reached 90 percent penetration by 2012. 
 
Businessmen and officials are gradually getting more comfortable with using email. 
E-commerce may be the next niche where U.S. companies can apply their expertise to develop the market in Tajikistan.
