You call rate in Ukraine is high than India 🇮🇳 and 3g and we have 4g network, which is much more better and faster than your internet and giving more facility than your company. Now India is making 5g internet also till 2019 😃☺️💘🌹💜🌞🌤️👨‍👩‍👧‍👧

Hi Olga, a little bit question: when I buy a SIM I can pay with cash or a credit card is mandatory? In other words, if I stay only two weeks in Kiev, I pay for example 3$ and stop!, or it's mandatory make a monthly plan? thanks

I have been to Ukraine before so I already have a life sim card. Should I just put money on it or should I get a new one what do you think is the better choice?

Do these prepaid SIM cards have sms texting as a feature? Is that even a thing in the Ukraine?
Nathan Y (1 year ago)
So cheap! :o In Australia, SIM card only is $2. No calls or internet included -_-
Wizz Bang (1 year ago)
One thing; not all smartphones used in the US will work with a Ukrainian sim card. Check with your US provider before you leave the US to see if your phone will work. Also your phone must be "unlocked". I brought a Motorola Electrify M and could not make it work with a KyivStar sim. You also must force your phone to operate 3G only (in the settings). When I return I will try with another carrier, and work with my settings. If it will not work, I will buy a cheap smartphone in Ukraine, I saw some as low as $90 USD. She is correct about not relying on WiFi. I tried it and the coverage is pretty short range. I found that for WiFi in most restaurants, I would need a password. Also to add money to your phone account, Ukraine has these cool things - pay boxes. You just find one, they are on the sidewalks, and you can pay phone, utility, bank, etc. bill in those with cash.

Hi Olga, I am Canadian, planning to visit Ukraine next spring/summer and your videos have been really helpful to me. Thank you! A question : I will be travelling for some time in other countries in Europe before arriving in Ukraine. Are there international SIM cards, for example maybe Vodafone, that can be used not only in Ukraine but also in other European countries? For example could I buy a SIM card in France or Germany that would still work when I arrive in Ukraine? Or rather Ukrainian SIM cards are only good for within Ukraine?
David Dubinsky (1 year ago)
Hi Olga, Ok that is interesting, I will check out Travel SIM cards. Thank you for taking the time to reply! And I think you are doing a really good job - in fact you are helping your country, in a nice way.
Olga Reznikova (1 year ago)
there are sim cards, which calls "Travel SIM". They have better prices than roaming and they work in 80 countries. If you will be few days in every country, maybe it will be better for you.

Олю, а як щодо Київстару? Хоча там і розділення по регіонам що впливає на ціну-ка тарифного плану, але ж мережа стабільніше працює, немає збоїв, низький пінг, якісніший роумінг ніж у Vodafone (за виключенням країн де Vodafone є одним з операторів). Щось мій комент виглядає як реклама( Є взагалі то одинешенек величавый аспект - територіальне покриття, і там де у lifecell більше користувачів, наприклад в Одесі, там і мережа стабільніша ніж у соперників, або Харків, де більшість користуються Vodafone... На веб-сайті Інтертелекому є карта покриття всіх операторів України, певно, важливо було б показати її у відео, щоб наші гості мали більше уявлення про покриття і обрали саме те, що їм більше знадобиться. До речі, дзвінки за кордон дешевші саме у Київстар, але у Vodafone і lifecell дешевше дзвонити у половину країн Європи, ще й у Vodafone має безкоштовні хвилини для дзвінків за кордон (Близько 15 країн).
Serhii Feelenko (1 year ago)
+Olga Reznikova наразі у Київстару є три інтернет-тарифи для пре-пейду, які поділені по регіонам. Всі вони з безлімом у мережі/соц-мережах, 60/100/300 хвилин на інші мережі, 2/4/6 ГБ інтернет-трафіку і різні "плюшки", типу безлім у вікіпедії/музика у соц-мережах і декількох сервісах/відео без ліміту у соц-мережах і декількох сервісах. + дзвінки за кордон. Працюючи у лавкаі мобільного зв'язку це все вже неодноразово тестувалося з усіма операторами, і на чудо в Одесі, де 80% населення користуються lifecell, у Київстару більш стабільна мережа. Єдине що може застерегти від купівлі Київстару, этак це розподіл по регіонам. Найдешевший тариф з інтернетом коштує в Одесі (регіон 2) 50 грн/міс, у Вінниці (регіон 1) - 60 грн/міс., а у Києві (або національний) - 70 грн/міс. при рівних пакетах.
Olga Reznikova (1 year ago)
В Київстара дуже повільний інтернет, порівняно з тим же лайфом, наприклад. Ну і крім того в их дуже заплутана тарифна політика. наприклад, немає такового, щоб усі дзвінки всередині були безкоштовними+ швидкий інтернет і т.д.. Хоча я сама користуюсь КИївстаром, але мені здаєтьс, дл ялюдини, яка приїхала на тиждень, то не кращий вибір)

Hi Olia, another excellent video on your country. Are the SIMs and prices you mention only for use within Ukraine or can you make international calls etc. with the "free minutes"?
Olga Reznikova (1 year ago)
you can make international calls, but prices will be different.
David leComte (1 year ago)
I get a SIM card every year - KyivSTAR is the best - forget the rest - especially MTS.
David leComte (1 year ago)
Yes I know - like every other company bought by Vodaphone, the network is still crap. I have tried MTS (pre Vodaphone) and LIFE) - both are useless in Southern Ukraine, and their internet is very slow. KyivSTAR was 3G everywhere. Hopefully 4G will be available in Ukraine in 2017? I paid 175uah for my current KyivStar SIM, KyivSTAR Online extra? - 6 Gig, 300? (500?) minutes, and valid for a month.
Olga Reznikova (1 year ago)
MTS is vodafone now
Dominika Domaczaja (1 year ago)
Only $2 for 750 minutes and 2GB? It's really cheap. In Poland, I pay everymonth $7 and I've got 10GB for Internet, and sometimes some gifts for calls and texting.
amaromem1 (1 year ago)
The prices are great Olia, but there is a way that you can keep your number? I have 2 numbers Samsung with Telcel (Mexico) and Iphone with AT&T
amaromem1 (1 year ago)
Dominika Domaczaja Yes AT&T is from USA, in Mexico we have Virgin Mobile from USA too, Movistar from Spain and of course Telcel from Mexico.
Dominika Domaczaja (1 year ago)
So you have a phones in Mexican and American cell phone operators? AT&T is American?
Matt Carroll (1 year ago)
I have an excellent, excellent, plan for internet on my phone in the US. It's $15 per month for 5gb of internet. That's a very low price here in the US.
Dominika Domaczaja (1 year ago)
In which cell phone operator are you in? ;)

giovanni jayme (1 year ago)
Hi Olga, Your becoming more prettier. ...So I was just wondering since you never mentioned, is it possible for my friend to buy and mail to me the sim card so that I can put it already in my phone before I travel? Just feeling more convenient of not to have dismantling my phone while travelling. Blessed day and Merry Christmas to you!
Olga Reznikova (1 year ago)
Yes, of course it's possible, but it will be expensive, because , mailing will cost around 50$ (if use DHL, for example)

+Olga Reznikova Olga can u please answer my post ? I was the 1st to pose a question before dukyd122 and Robin Nadeau .. please ..
dukyd122 (1 year ago)
i know but not everywhere is a good internet connection, let's say sometimes is needy to send SMS message :) And btw. why to call if there is a skype? :D :D
Olga Reznikova (1 year ago)
I even don't pay attention... Who use sms messeges if there are Viber, Whatssapp, Hangouts and other apps? :)))
dukyd122 (1 year ago)
And Olia? How is it about SMS messages? Are they free or how much they cost?
Robin Nadeau (1 year ago)
Also, my phone is not equipped for SIM card. In your opinion, is it better to by a phone that takes SIM cards in Ukraine from Vodaphone or Lifecell, or does it not matter? It would be great to have a phone with me when I arrive and just put in a SIM card but if better to buy a local phone, I can wait to arrive. Thank you!

You posted this video on December 25. In most western countries this is Christmas (Gregorian calendar). Do most business and individuals who celebrate Christmas use January 7 2017 (Julian calendar) or December 25? Or both In Kiev?
Olga Reznikova (1 year ago)
David Null catholics celebrate is on 25 December, and Orthdox on 7 January
equario (1 year ago)
Only January 7th is a bank holiday. Though, there is a proposal in the Ukrainian parliament to make December 25th a bank holiday as well.

So when I go next month I can buy lifecell for $7 and have 10gb data ? I like to have a lot of data for sending photos, and I'm there for 17 days :)
Custom Digital (1 year ago)
Lifecell is the best way to go! The 8GB plan is about $6.00 USD or so. Good coverage in Kiev and Odessa but you cannot recharge it online, which is typical for any "tourist SIM" in Ukraine and Serbia. You can't use it once you leave Ukraine. Vodafone is all over Europe so it's easy to recharge once you leave the country.
