The well-known codes of the largest national mobile operator Kyivstar (67, 68, 96, 97 and 98) have now been joined by a new one – 77. The relevant decision was made by the National Commission for the State Regulation of Electronic Communications, Radio Frequency Spectrum and Provision of Postal Services (NCEC). At its meeting, NCEC (former NCCIR) agreed to satisfy Kyivstar’s application to expand the numbering resource.

The network capacity for the new code, as well as for all previous ones, is 10 million non-geographic numbers. They will start like this: +380 77. The permit is granted for a period of 5 years. The total numbering resource of Kyivstar before receiving the new code was 50 million numbers, and the share of its use reached 79%. Thanks to the decision of the NCEC, the mobile operator increased this resource by 20%, to 60 million numbers.
