The Volia company, a telecommunications service provider, intends to introduce internet-access packages based on the DOCSIS 3.0 data-transfer protocol for private subscribers in September.
Alina Syhda, the head of Volia’s public relations department, announced this to
“Proposals on the DOCSIS 3.0 technology for the home segment will most likely be made in September,” Syhda said.
She did not disclose the number of internet-access packages that will be offered and the cost of the packages.
According to her, there will be several internet-access packages and they will be comparable in price with the company’s existing internet-access packages: the Game package (which offers 30,000 megabytes of internet traffic for a monthly subscription fee of UAH 100) and the Life package (80,000 megabytes of internet traffic for a monthly subscription fee of UAH 150).
To subscribe to the new packages, subscribers will need to replace their existing modems with new modems that support the DOCSIS 3.0 standard (such modems will be available for lease or purchase).
The company presently provides internet services to corporate subscribers based on the DOCSIS 3.0 standard.
As Ukrainian News earlier reported, Volia introduced the internet packages Super Premium and Extra Premium, which are based on the DOCSIS 3.0 standard, on March 1 as part of its Speed Unlimited group of internet tariffs for corporate clients.
The Volia company provides analog cable television broadcasting services under the Volia Cable brand name, digital television broadcasting services under the Volia Premium TV brand name, and Internet access via cable networks under the Volia Broadband trademark.
The Volia group of companies is owned by the Ukrainian Growth Fund (UGF), which is managed by the SigmaBleyzer international company.
