“Kyivstar Home Internet has largest gigabit network in Ukraine

25 April , 2024  

Kyivstar’s Home Internet has the largest gigabit network among Ukrainian Internet providers. The company has invested more than UAH 44 million in Gigabit development during the full-scale invasion alone.

At the beginning of 2024, the number of Kyivstar fixed-line subscribers reached 1.15 million, and more than 70% of them have access to gigabit tariff plans.
Thanks to the rapid modernization of gigabit equipment, Kyivstar Home Internet subscribers can increase the speed from the standard 100 Mbit/s to 1 Gbit/s. In particular, this became possible in big cities: Kyiv, Dnipro, Lviv, Rivne, Khmelnytsky, Lutsk, Ternopil, and cities of regional significance: Bila Tserkva, Kamianets-Podilskyi, Netishyn, Drohobych, Mukachevo, Novovolynsk, Boryspil, etc.
“With the number of gadgets and users in Ukrainian homes constantly growing, increasing the standard speed from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps is a hygienic improvement in the convenience of Internet access. That is why our focus in 2021 is to modernize our equipment in different cities of Ukraine for the qualitative development of Gigabit,” commented Sergiy Sukhoruk, Head of Fixed Line Communications at Kyivstar.

Subscribers can choose a tariff plan, and instead of the standard 100 Mbit/s speed, they can receive Internet at up to 1 Gbit/s. This allows users to download large files faster, connect more devices without sacrificing speed and watch videos on large screens in the best quality.
Before upgrading to a gigabit plan, users should make sure that their router is capable of supporting it. If it does not, they should replace it.
Gigabit speed from Kyivstar is available in most tariff plans of the Home Internet service. To test it, current subscribers can change their tariff to one that allows them to use speeds up to 1 Gbps, try it for 50 UAH/month or connect the appropriate Superfast. New Kyivstar fixed-line subscribers can use the Try Gigabit service and test gigabit speeds for free for the first 3 months.
