TeliaSonera International Carrier Delivers IP Solutions to Ukraine

STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- TeliaSonera International Carrier has once again been selected by Ukrtelecom, the leading provider of telecommunications solutions in Ukraine, as their provider of global IP transit services. The agreement strengthens TeliaSonera International Carrier's position as one of the leading IP solution providers in Eastern Europe.


Ukraine is one of Europe's fastest growing countries in terms of economic growth. The need for IP solutions is increasing as a result of this. The multi-million Euro agreement signed with TeliaSonera International Carrier will provide Ukrtelecom with fully diverse and geographically redundant IP solutions to access the Internet. This will allow Ukrtelecom a direct connection to e.g. Russian IP content.

"A fruitful and long-run cooperation with TeliaSonera International Carrier enables us to meet the needs of the most pretentious Ukrainian customers in advanced, high-quality Internet services and thus enhances the integration of Ukraine in the information space of the united Europe and the whole world," says the Deputy Chairman of the Board on Marketing and Sales Mr. Igor Syrotenko. "Today Ukrtelecom is the number one Internet-provider in Ukraine and to the great extent we owe this to our partnership relations with TeliaSonera International Carrier."

"We are very pleased about the renewed confidence that Ukrtelecom has shown in TeliaSonera International Carrier," says Magnus Sjolund, VP and Head of Sales at TeliaSonera International Carrier. "With this agreement we strengthen our relationship with Ukrtelecom. It is an honour for us to be a part of the IP expansion in this very interesting region and to contribute to the continued growth."
