Kyivstar launches GPON optical Internet in Dnipro

Kyivstar continues to develop its own optical Internet network. Dnipro became another city with GPON coverage, and 7 more cities are on the way.

In January 2024, this technology became available in Dnipro for business customers only. Currently, more than 10 business locations are connected in the city – office and shopping centers, industrial facilities, and further expansion of the network in the city is underway.

GPON is a gigabit passive optical network that allows the Internet to work even in the absence of power supply in a building. Such a network is less dependent on external factors, as optical fibers can transmit data over long distances without significant signal loss and without active equipment.

“For the second year in a row, we have been living and working in unpredictable conditions. Last year, Ukrainians and Ukrainian businesses suffered from blackouts. In 2023, blackouts continued to be a challenge for Ukrainian companies, although less serious than in 2022. Therefore, stable internet became a necessity for both communication and work during this time. That’s why we decided to launch GPON Internet in many cities of Ukraine,” said Kostiantyn Vechir, B2B Director of Kyivstar.

By the end of March 2024, Kyivstar plans to connect 7 more cities to high-speed Internet using GPON technology. The company will provide such services as fixed-line Internet, data transmission, and telephony using this technology. Customers will be able to choose the speed of 20 Mbps, 50 Mbps or 100 Mbps. In the future, the range of services and connection conditions will be expanded.
