Mobile penetration in Ukraine reaches 145%

As of December 31, 2023, the number of active mobile network identification cards amounted to 50.3 million units, which is 2% more than at the end of 2022, but 5.6 million units less than in 2021.

The National Commission for the Regulation of Electronic Communications (NCEC) attributes these figures to Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the unavailability of mobile networks in the temporarily occupied territories, a cyberattack on Kyivstar, and migration of people seeking refuge outside the country.

This is stated in the NCEC report for 2023 (PDF).
