Ukrainian GSM/3G/LTE mobile network operators Kyivstar, Vodafone Ukraine and Lifecell, alongside 3G CDMA operator Intertelecom, have signed a memorandum with Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk on covering the entire territory of Ukraine with high-quality, high speed communications networks, Interfax reported. Mr Honcharuk declared: ‘I believe that the total digitalisation of the country will begin with this document. Every corner of our country should have affordable, high-quality internet and communications. And we, in the government, with the president and with our partner companies will do everything necessary for this.’ The new government formed following July’s snap election has promised to implement ‘total digitalisation’ of the country under a wider goal of achieving 40% GDP growth over five years.
