Sharing telecom infrastructure will help companies to accelerate the deployment of 4G networks on rural areas and highways
Mobile operators Kievstar and Vodafone Ukraine signed a memorandum of understanding to share the passive and active infrastructure of their mobile networks. Thus, companies will use not only communication channels, but also base stations, as well as other devices. The result should be an acceleration of coverage of Ukraine with LTE technology.
Collaborating with the use of telecommunications infrastructure will allow operators to avoid duplication in the process of building the network, which will speed up the provision of access to 4G / LTE services for customers residing in sparsely populated areas. This is a strategically important issue for President Vladimir Zelensky and the government.
