For example, for prepaid and contract subscribers, the price of calls in the above countries will be reduced by half to 2.00 hryvnias per minute, 1 MB of Internet traffic will cost 0.35 hryvnias, and SMS-messages – 1 hryvnia.

Therefore, we have focused on creating the most transparent and understandable tariffs, which are available to every Ukrainian. Feeling the growing demand for communication in the roaming of new countries, we go on offering the most profitable tariffs for both voice and Internet services”, as the decrease in cost of services was commented on by Olexandr Galushko, Chief of International Calls and Roaming at “Kyivstar”.
