From April 15, the Kyivstar telecommunication operator introduced a tariff plan called Proryv (Breakthrough) for Djuice subscribers.
The tariff envisions that the cost of outgoing calls to numbers of Kyivstar, Beeline and other mobile and fixed telephony numbers is UAH 0.95 per minute, SMS costs UAH 0.50 and an MMS costs UAH 1.
The connection fee is not introduced.
On October 5, 2009, the Altimo company (Russia) and Telenor agreed to merge Kyivstar and VimpelCom to create a new cellular communications operator, VimpelCom Ltd. (Bermuda islands), to provide integrated cellular communications services in Russia, Ukraine, and other member-countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States, as well as in Georgia, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos.
Kyivstar and Beeline intend to complete their merger by 2014.
