More than 2 million subscribers of the national telecom operator Kyivstar were forced to seek refuge from the war abroad. To support them in this difficult time, the company has introduced a service “Roaming at home”. Thanks to this service, subscribers located in certain EU countries can use roaming services at their “home” tariffs without roaming charges.
For the third month in a row, Kyivstar subscribers who have left for some countries of the European Community can use mobile services at no extra charge, at the same rates as in Ukraine. In particular, to call relatives and friends in Ukraine, to receive calls from them, or to call numbers of the host country, to use the Internet in the tariff and other services. All you need to do is pay the cost of your tariff, which is usually much less than the cost of local operators.
If a subscriber uses, for example, the YOUR Start tariff, he will receive unlimited calls in Kyivstar for only UAH 135, 100 minutes for calls to numbers of other operators in Ukraine and in his country of residence, as well as 5 GB of mobile Internet. All incoming calls are unlimited.
Subscribers of the contract form of service receive an additional package of services: 500 minutes for outgoing calls to all Ukrainian numbers and numbers in the host country, 15 GB of mobile Internet, as well as 50 SMS. All entries are also unlimited.
It will be recalled that roaming for Kyivstar subscribers has been temporarily canceled in 16 EU countries: Poland, Germany, the Czech Republic, Italy and many others. The full list of countries and conditions can be found at the link.
According to Kyivstar, there are currently more than 2 million subscribers abroad who have been forced to leave their homeland due to hostilities. Most of them are in Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic.
