Operators: online news

This time, MTS and MegaFon pleased us with new "daily" Internet options operating throughout Russia. We will also discuss changes in the schemes for disconnecting / connecting MegaFon's Internet options, it is advisable for users to know and remember this.

Let's start with Daily Unlimited. In fairness, I consider it necessary to return to the previous publication on this topic:

“In MegaFon,“ Unlimited Internet - 24 ”was sent to the archive on September 17, as an alternative, it is recommended to connect“ Non-stop 24 ”. Generally speaking, it is strange that this "Unlimited Internet - 24" for 150 rubles. lasted so long. There are no restrictions on access speed and traffic volume, and at current high speeds, you can download more than a dozen gigabytes per day.

In MTS, "Unlimited Internet for a day" is closed from October 1, in return they promise something similar, but with action throughout Russia, we read the news here. "Unlimited Internet for a day" cost 149 rubles with a full-speed traffic limit of 1 GB (1024 MB). We do not know the parameters of the new offer, but by analogy with the recently appeared Internet options, we can assume a hard traffic limit (complete blocking instead of slowing down) and a slight price increase. I wonder if you guessed right or not?

I am pleased to report that I did not guess at all, the “Day” options of MTS and MegaFon have nothing to do with my assumptions. In fact, they turned out to be much more interesting and cheaper. One of those cases when it is extremely pleasant not to guess, it would be more often to be mistaken like that.

MTS: "Unlimited for a day in Russia"

We read the news here, a short quote:

"The tariff option "Unlimited for a day in Russia" is an ideal choice for subscribers who need unlimited Internet access when traveling in Russia not on a regular basis, but only from time to time. This is a convenient solution for those who do not want to use options for accessing the Internet with mandatory monthly or daily payments.

The option belongs to the On Demand category, i.e. no fee is charged if there were no accesses (or attempts to access) the Internet during the day. Connected to the network - money is withdrawn immediately in a day. Slightly gnaw doubts about ". on trips around Russia": for 99 rubles. they give as much as 2 GB (2048 MB) of traffic per day, and I don’t really imagine the profile of a person who needs such volumes daily while traveling. Unless newlyweds spending their honeymoon downloading and watching the latest episodes of Interns. Joking aside, one can imagine having to send or receive a lot of data on a business trip, but the average consumer would be better off with less traffic for less money.

But in Moscow, the option can be very useful, including lovers of all kinds of multimedia luxury and even movies. Moreover, from the “correct” device, the option will also work in the LTE network. MTS explained that in the LTE coverage area and in the presence of an LTE-compatible device, the LTE network will be available at any Internet tariff. The only condition is that “Unlimited for a day in Russia” will not work in Moscow if another Internet option is connected.

A detailed description of the "Unlimited for a day in Russia" option can be found here, a voluminous and meticulous manuscript. I will list a few key points of the description:

  • "Time X" - 3 o'clock in the morning, at this moment the accounting day ends and new ones begin.
  • After downloading 2048 MB during the day, the speed is cut to 64 Kbps. And it may remain so for the next day if you do not reconnect to the network.
  • The action and parameters of the option “Unlimited for a day in Russia” apply only to traffic through the access point (APN) internet.mts.ru and do not apply to traffic through other APNs (realip.msk, corporate APNs, etc.).< /li>
  • With the "SuperBIT" option, the "Unlimited for a day in Russia" option does not work. Also, the option is incompatible with all modifications of the options "Internet+", "Internet optimization", "Unlimited night Internet", "Internet for a penny", "Unlimited Internet on RED Energy TP", does not work with secure data transfer (APN), GPRS - access to the corporate network, APN XXX (all modifications), "APN: Access to corporate resources" and the "Unlimited for Yandex.Maps" option.
  • The "Unlimited day in Russia" option interacts perfectly with Internet packages and unlimited options operating in the Moscow region: when you are in your home region, the option "Unlimited day in Russia" seems to be "dozing", and the money for it are not debited, in the home region, other Internet options have a higher priority. Accordingly, when leaving the Moscow region, "Unlimited for a day in Russia" is turned on and begins to be charged.
  • In the description of "Unlimited for a day in Russia" it is indicated that the use of "Turbo buttons" with this option is possible. Although in the lists of options compatible with the "Turbo buttons" our "Unlimited for a day in Russia" does not appear. Most likely, in Moscow and outside the Moscow region, "Turbo buttons" 1GB and 3GB will operate, I'm not sure about the operation of other "Turbo buttons".

MegaFon: Internet 24 and Internet 24 PRO

Over the past few days, one "Non-Stop 24" managed to be sent to the archive, the second was renamed. Now instead of "non-stops" we have two new options: "Internet 24" and "Internet 24 PRO". A description of the options is available here, we list the main features.

  • The same "On Demand" category, i.e. no fee is charged if there were no accesses (or attempts to access) the Internet during the day
  • Options "Internet 24" and "Internet 24 PRO" do not interact with other Internet options
  • In 4G network "Internet 24" and "Internet 24 PRO" do not work
  • The service (option) "Extend speed" with the options "Internet 24" and "Internet 24 PRO" does not work
  • The options are valid throughout Russia (except for the coverage area of ​​the network of the Far Eastern branch of OJSC MegaFon, the Taimyr municipal district and the city of Norilsk) during the current day.

Now about some individual features of the options of the "Internet 24" line. With the "Internet 24 PRO" option, everything is clear and familiar:

  • The cost of a day of use is 150 rubles
  • The size of the full-speed traffic package is 1.5 GB
  • The maximum access speed is 5 Mbps, then the speed is cut to 64 Kbps.

Against the background of the MTS option "Unlimited for a day in Russia", the option "Internet 24 PRO" looks pale: a third more money and a quarter less traffic.

But with the new option “Internet 24” everything is much more interesting, the design turned out, I’m not afraid of this word, unique.

  • The cost of a day of use is 24 rubles
  • The volume of the traffic package included in this price is 200 MB
  • After 200 MB is used up, before the end of the current day, mobile Internet will be charged at a price of 0.5 rubles. for 1 MB
  • The maximum access speed is 3 Mbps, after the packet is exhausted, the speed does not decrease. This is not necessary, since traffic over the package is charged per megabyte
  • If during the day the volume of transmitted and received data turned out to be less than 5 MB, then 24 rubles. these days are not removed. Unexpected decision, agree. The description of this feature looks a bit vague, but MegaFon officially confirmed the 5-megabyte no-charge threshold for me. Of course, these 5 MB count towards the total package size of 200 MB.

I would say that the "Internet 24" option looks extremely tempting for those who buy a smartphone as a fashionable and modern "dialer", there are many such users. And they will feel “dry and comfortable” even with some default weather widget.

The second target group is smartphone and even tablet users who use Wi-Fi hotspots at home and at work. Five megabytes may well be enough for the messenger to work on the road and for the device to periodically “run in” to the cellular network when the Wi-Fi signal is lost or when moving from one hot spot to another. And when going out into nature, to the country house, on vacation, etc., 24 rubles. per day are quite a fair price for mobile Internet with action in Russia. And, importantly, there is no need to connect / disconnect something or monitor the rest of the "Gigabyte on the road".

It's strange, very strange that MegaFon went for such an unusual option structure. Until now, operators have taken and continue to take all measures to ensure that even microscopic smartphone traffic generates significant costs and "pushes" the subscriber to the telephone unlimited. And then suddenly they took and abandoned the effective tool of "compulsion to unlim". Yes, and actively advertise. I'm really afraid to recommend it, despite official assurances. On the other hand, you can survive the loss of 24 rubles, it's not a sin to try. Unless, of course, your Internet needs match the consumption patterns described above.

News of options wiring diagrams

Several interesting innovations have appeared in the metropolitan MegaFon in the field of "switching" Internet options. Nothing particularly revolutionary, but knowledge will save some money and nerve cells.

Honda Cars in Ghana

Internet options are now physically disabled on their disable day. Until now, disabling an option was like a request to disable it, the option continued to work until the last paid day, and then turned off. If necessary, it was possible to immediately disable the option (forcibly) by calling the customer service. I'm not saying that the previous scheme was correct, but everyone is already used to it. Now you have to wean yourself so as not to inadvertently leave yourself without the Internet.

A day to go. I recently wrote about the “legalization” of the BIT PRO option in Megafon and the expansion of the BIT line, you can read it here. Even before that, "in full growth" the question arose of switching from one version of BIT to another, now it is even more relevant. Not so long ago this problem was solved, but few people know about it. The essence of the problem is that the subscription fee for BITs is charged on a daily basis, and the operator is extremely uninterested in using this option only on certain days. In MTS, this was decided by withdrawing the subscriber immediately a month in advance, in MegaFon they set a fee for reconnection in the amount of 100 rubles. The meaning of disconnecting and connecting was gone, but the transition from the older version of the BIT to the younger one turned out to be paid, since the BIT had to be disconnected and connected again. Now the ill-fated 100 rubles. are not removed if reconnection occurred during the current day, go to health.

"Eternity" was reduced to a month. The second question with the same 100 rubles is the fee for an “honest” temporary refusal of the option. For example, having turned off the BIT for a month or two or three, the subscriber still paid a “penalty” of 100 rubles. next time you connect. Now 100 rubles. "reset" and reconnection becomes free again if 30 or more days have passed since the disconnection.

Let's start with Daily Unlimited. In fairness, I consider it necessary to return to the previous publication on this topic:

“In MegaFon,“ Unlimited Internet - 24 ”was sent to the archive on September 17, as an alternative, it is recommended to connect“ Non-stop 24 ”. Generally speaking, it is strange that this "Unlimited Internet - 24" for 150 rubles. lasted so long. There are no restrictions on access speed and traffic volume, and at current high speeds, you can download more than a dozen gigabytes per day.

In MTS, "Unlimited Internet for a day" is closed from October 1, in return they promise something similar, but with action throughout Russia, we read the news here. "Unlimited Internet for a day" cost 149 rubles with a full-speed traffic limit of 1 GB (1024 MB). We do not know the parameters of the new offer, but by analogy with the recently appeared Internet options, we can assume a hard traffic limit (complete blocking instead of slowing down) and a slight price increase. I wonder if you guessed right or not?

I am pleased to report that I did not guess at all, the “Day” options of MTS and MegaFon have nothing to do with my assumptions. In fact, they turned out to be much more interesting and cheaper. One of those cases when it is extremely pleasant not to guess, it would be more often to be mistaken like that.

MTS: "Unlimited for a day in Russia"

We read the news here, a short quote:

"The tariff option "Unlimited for a day in Russia" is an ideal choice for subscribers who need unlimited Internet access when traveling in Russia not on a regular basis, but only from time to time. This is a convenient solution for those who do not want to use options for accessing the Internet with mandatory monthly or daily payments.

The option belongs to the On Demand category, i.e. no fee is charged if there were no accesses (or attempts to access) the Internet during the day. Connected to the network - money is withdrawn immediately in a day. Slightly gnaw doubts about ". on trips around Russia": for 99 rubles. they give as much as 2 GB (2048 MB) of traffic per day, and I don’t really imagine the profile of a person who needs such volumes daily while traveling. Unless newlyweds spending their honeymoon downloading and watching the latest episodes of Interns. Joking aside, one can imagine having to send or receive a lot of data on a business trip, but the average consumer would be better off with less traffic for less money.

But in Moscow, the option can be very useful, including lovers of all kinds of multimedia luxury and even movies. Moreover, from the “correct” device, the option will also work in the LTE network. MTS explained that in the LTE coverage area and in the presence of an LTE-compatible device, the LTE network will be available at any Internet tariff. The only condition is that “Unlimited for a day in Russia” will not work in Moscow if another Internet option is connected.

A detailed description of the "Unlimited for a day in Russia" option can be found here, a voluminous and meticulous manuscript. I will list a few key points of the description:

  • "Time X" - 3 o'clock in the morning, at this moment the accounting day ends and new ones begin.
  • After downloading 2048 MB during the day, the speed is cut to 64 Kbps. And it may remain so for the next day if you do not reconnect to the network.
  • The action and parameters of the option “Unlimited for a day in Russia” apply only to traffic through the access point (APN) internet.mts.ru and do not apply to traffic through other APNs (realip.msk, corporate APNs, etc.).< /li>
  • With the "SuperBIT" option, the "Unlimited for a day in Russia" option does not work. Also, the option is incompatible with all modifications of the options "Internet+", "Internet optimization", "Unlimited night Internet", "Internet for a penny", "Unlimited Internet on RED Energy TP", does not work with secure data transfer (APN), GPRS - access to the corporate network, APN XXX (all modifications), "APN: Access to corporate resources" and the "Unlimited for Yandex.Maps" option.
  • The "Unlimited day in Russia" option interacts perfectly with Internet packages and unlimited options operating in the Moscow region: when you are in your home region, the option "Unlimited day in Russia" seems to be "dozing", and the money for it are not debited, in the home region, other Internet options have a higher priority. Accordingly, when leaving the Moscow region, "Unlimited for a day in Russia" is turned on and begins to be charged.
  • In the description of "Unlimited for a day in Russia" it is indicated that the use of "Turbo buttons" with this option is possible. Although in the lists of options compatible with the "Turbo buttons" our "Unlimited for a day in Russia" does not appear. Most likely, in Moscow and outside the Moscow region, "Turbo buttons" 1GB and 3GB will operate, I'm not sure about the operation of other "Turbo buttons".

MegaFon: Internet 24 and Internet 24 PRO

Over the past few days, one "Non-Stop 24" managed to be sent to the archive, the second was renamed. Now instead of "non-stops" we have two new options: "Internet 24" and "Internet 24 PRO". A description of the options is available here, we list the main features.

  • The same "On Demand" category, i.e. no fee is charged if there were no accesses (or attempts to access) the Internet during the day
  • Options "Internet 24" and "Internet 24 PRO" do not interact with other Internet options
  • In 4G network "Internet 24" and "Internet 24 PRO" do not work
  • The service (option) "Extend speed" with the options "Internet 24" and "Internet 24 PRO" does not work
  • The options are valid throughout Russia (except for the coverage area of ​​the network of the Far Eastern branch of OJSC MegaFon, the Taimyr municipal district and the city of Norilsk) during the current day.

Now about some individual features of the options of the "Internet 24" line. With the “Internet 24 PRO” option, everything is clear and already familiar:

  • The cost of a day of use is 150 rubles
  • The size of the full-speed traffic package is 1.5 GB
  • The maximum access speed is 5 Mbps, then the speed is cut to 64 Kbps.

Against the background of the MTS option "Unlimited for a day in Russia", the option "Internet 24 PRO" looks pale: a third more money and a quarter less traffic.

But with the new option "Internet 24" everything is much more interesting, the design turned out, I'm not afraid of this word, unique.

  • The cost of a day of use is 24 rubles
  • The volume of the traffic package included in this price is 200 MB
  • After 200 MB is used up, before the end of the current day, mobile Internet will be charged at a price of 0.5 rubles. for 1 MB
  • The maximum access speed is 3 Mbps, after the packet is exhausted, the speed does not decrease. This is not necessary, since traffic over the package is charged per megabyte
  • If during the day the volume of transmitted and received data turned out to be less than 5 MB, then 24 rubles. these days are not removed. Unexpected decision, agree. The description of this feature looks a bit vague, but MegaFon officially confirmed the 5-megabyte no-charge threshold for me. Of course, these 5 MB count towards the total package size of 200 MB.

I would say that the "Internet 24" option looks extremely tempting for those who buy a smartphone as a fashionable and modern "dialer", there are many such users. And they will feel “dry and comfortable” even with some default weather widget.

The second target group is smartphone and even tablet users who use Wi-Fi hotspots at home and at work. Five megabytes may well be enough for the messenger to work on the road and for the device to periodically “run in” to the cellular network when the Wi-Fi signal is lost or when moving from one hot spot to another. And when going out into nature, to the country house, on vacation, etc., 24 rubles. per day are quite a fair price for mobile Internet with action in Russia. And, importantly, there is no need to connect / disconnect something or monitor the rest of the "Gigabyte on the road".

It's strange, very strange that MegaFon went for such an unusual option structure. Until now, operators have taken and continue to take all measures to ensure that even microscopic smartphone traffic generates significant costs and "pushes" the subscriber to the telephone unlimited. And then suddenly they took and abandoned the effective tool of "compulsion to unlim". Yes, and actively advertise. I'm really afraid to recommend it, despite official assurances. On the other hand, you can survive the loss of 24 rubles, it's not a sin to try. Unless, of course, your Internet needs match the consumption patterns described above.

News of options wiring diagrams

Several interesting innovations have appeared in the metropolitan MegaFon in the field of "switching" Internet options. Nothing particularly revolutionary, but knowledge will save some money and nerve cells.

Internet options are now physically disabled on their disable day. Until now, disabling an option was like a request to disable it, the option continued to work until the last paid day, and then turned off. If necessary, it was possible to immediately disable the option (forcibly) by calling the customer service. I'm not saying that the previous scheme was correct, but everyone is already used to it. Now you have to wean yourself so as not to inadvertently leave yourself without the Internet.

A day to go. I recently wrote about the “legalization” of the BIT PRO option in Megafon and the expansion of the BIT line, you can read it here. Even before that, "in full growth" the question arose of switching from one version of BIT to another, now it is even more relevant. Not so long ago this problem was solved, but few people know about it. The essence of the problem is that the subscription fee for BITs is charged on a daily basis, and the operator is extremely uninterested in using this option only on certain days. In MTS, this was decided by withdrawing the subscriber immediately a month in advance, in MegaFon they set a fee for reconnection in the amount of 100 rubles. The meaning of disconnecting and connecting was gone, but the transition from the older version of the BIT to the younger one turned out to be paid, since the BIT had to be disconnected and connected again. Now the ill-fated 100 rubles. are not removed if reconnection occurred during the current day, go to health.

"Eternity" was reduced to a month. The second question with the same 100 rubles is the fee for an “honest” temporary refusal of the option. For example, having turned off the BIT for a month or two or three, the subscriber still paid a “penalty” of 100 rubles. next time you connect. Now 100 rubles. "reset" and reconnection becomes free again if 30 or more days have passed since the disconnection.
