Making a call

To call abroad from and land-based telephone in Ukraine can be quite costly, less so if dialing from a mobile phone (rates may vary). While many locals use prepaid phone cards that can be bought on the street, at local post offices or from street-side kiosk vendors, many visitors to the country often obtain a local SIM card for their mobile phone (it is very easy and straightforward) and take advantage of one of the many different long-distance diallng options each local mobile phone operator provides. To find the best card we recommend asking for help from any street-side vendor because different cards have different rates for each country, so it is best to say where you want to call and they can then advise you. In any event, here is how to dial abroad without a calling card:


Payment of Mobile and internet:
If you have already your mobile number or your internet connection you can pay very easily. You find blue free standing payment machines in supermarkets,hotels, cafes  or in Underground (Metro) stations. Type your mobile number, insert a UAH money bill ,  the payment is done and a receipt will be printed.

If you lose your SIM card:
The process what to do is different depending on the company. Golden Telekom and Kyivstar charge 100UAH for replacement if you have a contract. With MTC you have to buy a new card. If you have a prepaid card you simply buy a new SIM card and get a new number as well. You can buy SIM cards everywhere.

Broadband connection
To set up broadband connection call the customer service and ask if they have coverage in your building. If connection is possible, choose a tariff and book a time for the technicians to come and install it.

 
Through phone line
To connect via your fixed line, buy a pre-paid card at the same places as you buy phone cards. There are several companies providing this service - IP Telecom, Svit Online etc. There is a code on the card which you will use to log on - usually you get 10 minutes for free to set up your new account on their homepage, after that, you log off and back in again with your new login and password and ca start surfing. This type of connection, however, not only blocks your phone line, it is also very slow. The cards start at $2.

Post offices
Post offices across Ukraine also have Internet access, Kiev central post office on Maydan Nezalezhnosti works non-stop.
