International partners will help Ukrainian operators to purchase the necessary equipment to upgrade communications in Ukraine.
As reported by the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine in its Telegram channel, due to large-scale hostilities, the Russian invaders damaged the network of Ukrainian telecom operators, which left people in many settlements without access to the Internet.
“International partners will help operators purchase the necessary equipment to update communications in Ukraine. The first equipment will begin arriving in Ukraine in the middle of April. This is a completely volunteer initiative of volunteers who are making every effort to keep Ukrainians access to important information,” the Ministry of Digital Transformation said.
The project is implemented by the Global NOG Alliance initiative with the participation and support of the Ministry of Digital Development, industry associations of the Association of Copyright Holders and Content Providers, the Internet Association of Ukraine and DEPS.
The Ministry of Digital Transformation said that Ukrainian operators continue to provide services every day in regions where it is possible, and resume Internet access for Ukrainians.
“In order to help provide Internet to all settlements faster, we are launching the Keep Ukraine Connected project,” the ministry said.
