Ukrtelecom launches SME range of FTTx services, raises DSL tariffs

20 Mar 2015

In a release on its website, Ukrtelecom has announced that it has expanded its range of fibre-to-the-home (FTTH, a.k.a. fibre-to-the-premises [FTTP]) and fibre-to-the-building (FTTB) internet access services for small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs), offering connections speeds of up to 100Mbps at business centres, offices and shopping/entertainment centres. Three ‘unlimited’ FTTx internet plans are on offer: ‘Office 10’ (with speeds up to 10Mbps for a monthly fee of UAH180 [USD7.68]; ‘Office 50’ (50Mbps for UAH400); and ‘Office 100’ (100Mbps for UAH600). The optical internet activation fee is just UAH1 for FTTB and UAH60 for FTTH. All rates include VAT. Ukrtelecom is yet to launch a mass market consumer FTTx service.

Shortly before its FTTx launch, BizLigaNet reported that Ukrtelecom raised tariffs for its fixed broadband internet services – mostly delivered over xDSL access technology – by between 10% and 33%. The rate increases are due to changes in the foreign exchange rate, and follow several other rival broadband providers beginning to raise tariffs last year.
