Russia’s MTS has decided to dispose of its fixed line business Comstar Ukraine.
Local reports say that the latter, which currently has around 18,000 subscribers, some 7,000 of who receive an IPTV service, now accounts for less than 0.5% of MTS’ total turnover in Ukraine.
MTS has held a majority (50.91%) stake in Comstar Ukraine since October 2009 and the company is now believed to be worth in the region of UAH32 million (€2.9 million).
