In a press release, Kyivstar – part of the VEON group – says that its latest LTE expansion work connected 116 additional settlements in Zakarpattia, Lviv, Mykolaiv and Khmelnytsky regions, bringing its total to 6,817 settlements within the 4G footprint, 90% of which are located in areas classified as rural.
