An estimated 57% of Ukrainians will be using 3G mobile services by 2020, while just 5% of them will be using LTE (4G) technology, Ukrainian media reported on June 4, quoting the Ericsson Mobility Report, based on data from the AC&M consulting and research agency.

Ukraine remains one of the least developed countries in Europe in terms of mobile technologies. In February, the country's authorities issued 3G licences to MTS Ukraine, Turkcell’s subsidiary Astelit, and VimpelCom's subsidiary Kyivstar.

Earlier this year, Ukrainian national telecommunications regulator announced its intention to start a process of issuing licences for building LTE networks in 2017.
