MOSCOW, May 22. /TASS/. A new mobile phone operator will begin work in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, in eastern Ukraine, in late summer when its sim cards will go on sale.
The operator will be called Fenix and will provide coverage in 75% of the republic’s territory, the DPR’s communications minister said, announcing that the ambitious plan on creating the local mobile phone operator has been almost fulfilled.
Fenix will provide high-speed Internet services to over 60,000 clients of home networks. Viktor Yatsenko told the Donetsk news agency that some 300,000 Fenix cards would be ready by late summer.
The ministry stressed that the emergence of the own mobile phone operator in the republic did not mean that Life and MTS-Ukraine companies would have to leave. It reminded that a fixed line telecoms provider, Ugletelecom, has also recently started operations in the republic.
