Ukrtelecom registers fibre broadband brand

6 Dec 2012

Ukrainian telco Ukrtelecom has registered three new trade marks for telecoms/software services with the Ukrainian Institute of Industrial Property – ‘U.fiber’, ‘U.wire’ and ‘U.wall’ – reports ProIT. The new brands appear to be part of Ukrtelecom’s preparations to launch direct fibre-based broadband services to upgrade its currently ADSL-only network. It was previously reported that the telco was testing services based on fibre-to-the-building (FTTB)/fibre-to-the-home (FTTH), while it is currently trialing IPTV under the brand ‘U.tv’, but a licence for a full commercial IPTV service from the National Council on TV and Radio Broadcasting has not yet been forthcoming.
