Ukraine’s incumbent national PSTN operator Ukrtelecom announced on its website that it has expanded its fixed broadband network to 146 additional settlements in areas across the country since the start of 2014. In October alone Ukrtelecom launched fixed broadband services in 55 additional small towns/villages in 16 regions of Ukraine. TeleGeography says that Ukrtelecom’s xDSL high speed internet network covers over 1,400 settlements nationwide, and in recent times the telco has firmly focused on expanding broadband to small communities, many of which its fixed network rivals do not serve. In its latest announcement, Ukrtelecom cites a study from Ukrainian non-governmental think tank Razumkov Centre which says that in September 2014 45% of the population did not have internet access, most of them living in small towns/villages.
