The Government has endorsed a decision aimed to increase the efficiency of use of the radio frequency resource. In particular, the plan for use of the radio frequency resource of Ukraine was amended.
"The redistribution of frequencies in the 800-900 MHz bands will improve access to mobile Internet and facilitate the process of building 4G networks for operators", Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk stated.
Due to the redistribution of frequencies, operators will renew their licenses in early March. In April, Intertelecom will begin developing its network and mobile operators of the Big Three – in July.

Improving access to the mobile Internet will enable citizens to take full advantage of the digital world, in particular in the fields of education, medicine, e-commerce, administrative services, and the development of e-democracy.
