Kyivstar offers to use RTK signal for year on special terms

Kyivstar, the largest electronic communications operator, together with Trimble, an American manufacturer of navigation systems and a leader in the agricultural industry in the areas of autonomy and smart farming using a mixed fleet of PTx Trimble machines, have created a profitable offer for Ukrainian farmers.

Starting from May and until the end of the year, when connecting an annual RTK signal package from Kyivstar, users will be able to unlock the Trimble GFX display-based autonomous driving system on agricultural machinery to the RTK level for free and receive activation of the Trimble xFill Premium service for RTK signal backup.

“There have been no similar offers on the Ukrainian market before. We understand that farmers, like other businesses, are going through difficult times. That is why we offer such special conditions that will allow them to save money and do their work even more efficiently to jointly support the Ukrainian economy,” said Ilya Poltakov, Kyivstar’s Director of New Business Development.

In agriculture, the RTK correction service is used to accurately orient and navigate machinery and helps to obtain real-time coordinates for it with an accuracy of 2.5 cm. The technology increases productivity, reduces production costs, makes it easier for drivers to work in the field, and allows for higher yields.

The offer is valid until the end of 2024, the promotional conditions are valid for one year from the date of connection. To take advantage of the special conditions, you need to contact a Trimble dealer or leave an application on the Kyivstar website.
