End to the high-life: Giraffe terminates internet on 1 April

8 Jan 2021

Ukrainian ISP Giraffe, a provider of wireless broadband access based on WiMAX and Canopy systems, has announced that it will shut down its internet services on 1 April 2021. This followed the company’s previous statement that it was ceasing ‘provision of telecommunications services’ on 31 January 2021. As previously reported by CommsUpdate, Ukraine’s National Commission for State Regulation of Communications and Informatization (NCCIR or NKRZI) stated that on 15 December it revoked the broadband spectrum licence of Intellectual Communications (Intellecom, trading as Giraffe) which covered all regions of Ukraine except Mykolaiv, adding that it had decided to put the concession up for competitive tender in the future.
