5 Oct 2021

Ukraine’s mobile market leader Kyivstar has expanded VoLTE support for post-paid customers to a wider range of smartphones on its network, now including various models of Samsung and Huawei handsets in addition to the Apple iPhone range. TeleGeography notes that Kyivstar claimed Ukraine’s first VoLTE launch in December 2020 with initial availability across the LTE network for premium contract subscribers with iPhones, while promising to activate VoLTE support for other smartphones in phases through 2021 and all subscribers to eventually qualify for VoLTE access.

In its latest release, Kyivstar cited user feedback based on a Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) showing that 85% of responding VoLTE users reported a positive change in the quality of communication. Kyivstar’s 4G LTE network currently reaches 89% of the Ukrainian population.
