Support for Ukraine

In May, mobile prices between Ukraine and Lithuania will be almost four times lower and mobile data in Ukraine will be cheaper than the regulated pricing between EU operators. 

In addition, the company has been continuously looking for ways to help businesses and NGOs moving to Lithuania. Staff empowerment activities, including provision of information on support and volunteering, have been also performed. Presently, Telia’s support to Ukraine has exceeded EUR 300,000.

Further reduced prices

From 24 February to 31 March, Telia provided all communication services to Ukraine free of charge. For the services provided in more than a month, the Ukrainian operators received more than EUR 200,000. In April, all services were provided with 80% discount.

From 2 May, a call to Ukraine will cost EUR 0.06/min and a text message (SMS) – EUR 0.08/ea. This is four times cheaper than standard rates. For wireline customers, a call to Ukraine will cost EUR 0.104/min instead of EUR 0.52/min.

A roaming minute in Ukraine for calls to Lithuania will cost EUR 0.085 and EUR 0.005 for an SMS. Mobile data roaming will cost around EUR 2 per 1 GB.

The new pricing will apply to all private and business Telia customers, including users of pre-paid payment services Ežys and Extra. Telia’s customers in Ukraine will be further able to call, send SMS and surf the internet for free.

Since the very beginning of the war in Ukraine, all Telia TV customers have been provided with a free access to international news and information channels.

Free SIM cards to refugees from Ukraine

Telia tries to ensure that war refugees arriving in Lithuania have the opportunity to stay in touch with their relatives. Every refugee from Ukraine can get a free pre-paid card Ežys. They are distributed in all refugee coordination centres in Lithuania.

The cards are available in the following centres:
