Astelit extends DLD, ILD licence for five years

13 Jun 2013

Ukraine’s National Commission for the State Regulation of Communications and Informatization (NCCIR or NKRZI) has extended cellco Astelit’s fixed line domestic and international long-distance (DLD and ILD) telephony licence for a five-year period to 16 June 2018, reports ProIT. In March 2013 the NCCIR withheld its permission to extend Astelit’s ILD/DLD licence covering the regions of Kiev, Dnipropetrovsk, Kharkiv, Donetsk, Odessa and the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, but its latest decision upholds subsequent rulings of the Kiev Administrative and Appeal courts.
