Kranj, 26 August 2009 – End of July 2009, Iskratel, the leading supplier of the contemporary telecommunication solutions from Slovenia, and Ukrtelekom, the Ukrainian national operator, signed an agreement on an extension of the ADSL 2+ broadband access network. The first phase covers the supply of equipment and the integration of 100,000 ports within 2 successive months. The realization of the project will commence immediately after the contract.
