The Kyivstar telecommunication operator has introduced services “Package 20 SMS” and “Package 10 MMS” for subscribers of Beeline (the Ukrainian Radiosystems Company) from April 6.
The effect of package messages is one week.
The cost of the service of SMS is UAH 3/week, the cost of service of MMS is UAH 2/week.
As Ukrainian News earlier reported, the Kyivstar telecommunications operator and the Beeline mobile communications operator (the Ukrainian Radiosystems and Golden Telecom companies) ended the period of October-December 2010 with a net profit of UAH 514.1 million.
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.
