Mobile phones are replacing fixed lines telephones

Mobile phones are replacing fixed lines telephones in Zhovti Vody, a Dnipropetrovsk region where theft of telephone cables is a recurring problem, reports Ukrtelecom, the nation’s fixed line operator. Under a pilot program started on Tuesday, fixed line subscribers are receiving mobile phones at no extra cost with the same priced calling plans, Liga.biznes repots. Although world copper prices have dropped 17% this summer, cable theft has not stopped. Referring to the uranium mining city of 45,000 people 135 km west of Dnipro, Ukrtelecom states: “This is one of the cities in the region most affected by telecommunications cable theft. Unfortunately, repeated repairs do not solve the problem, because the new cable is cut again. And thousands of subscribers remain without communication.”
