About Super MTS

The news about the release of the next version of the tariff from the Moscow site of MTS has disappeared, but in the regions the process has begun. With a high degree of probability they will get to Moscow, was it not just that the news hung on the site? I wrote about it at the beginning of November and this time I almost guessed right with the forecast, quote:

". a new version of the tariff is coming out on November 13, there are no details yet. Old in the archive, the conditions for previously connected do not change. The news is important because there are millions on this tariff and this is the undisputed leader among tariffs without an MTS monthly fee. I don’t remember what the Super MTS tuning was, the previous ones were not for the better. Will they reduce the number of free minutes on the network again? It is unlikely that less than 20 minutes will somehow look unaesthetic. You can do the opposite: add free minutes, but make the first minute of each conversation paid, as was done in MegaFon, including archive tariffs.

That's exactly what they did. The first minute of a call within the network is now from 0.5 to 1 rub. depending on the region, further 19 minutes of conversation are free. In Moscow, if they do the same, we can assume 1.5 rubles. for the first minute and starting from the 21st minute of each conversation. Good or bad tariff upgrade? Looking for someone. Although only 19 free minutes in a conversation, of course, they mentally cut. On the one hand, even 1.5 rubles per minute does not look like a ruinous payment for a conversation, but call at least 15 times a day. On the other hand, quite a lot of subscribers fit into these 20 free minutes a day and do not pay for communication at all for months. Confirmation - regular complaints about selected "inactive" phone numbers. The main thing is to turn off all paid additional services.

There are also paid options “Call MTS for free” (50 free minutes per day on MTS of your region) or “Call for free on MTS Russia” (100 free minutes per day on MTS Russia), with these options connected, the fee for the first a minute of conversation is not taken.

Unfortunately, some regions were unlucky. In the summer, I wrote about planned transfers from the archived Super MTS, Super Zero and RED Energy to package tariffs with a Smart Mini subscription fee. It turns out that this was only the first wave, which affected far from all regions. November 15 or 16, the second or third, I don’t know exactly. And here it turns out some "ambush". They transfer from the archival Super MTS to the packaged Smart Mini, the client finds out about this and wants to go back. And it won’t work back, 2-3 days before the transfer, Super MTS was changed to the current new version with a fee for the first minute of each conversation. It was hardly an insidious idea, most regions managed to go through the transfer before the appearance of the current Super MTS. But the coincidence is unpleasant.

About bonuses and taxis

Operators, news

For those who are upset, I advise you to read the MTS news feed to improve your mood, now almost every third news about goods and services that can be purchased with payment with bonus points is there. And rightly so: everyone is diligently dragged to package rates, for which it is not so easy to spend bonuses. And here the bonuses are “in business”, and the partner is pleased. Here, for example, is the news about a taxi for bonuses only for MTS subscribers (Moscow and St. Petersburg), the project page is here. Even special applications for iOS and Android were not too lazy to make. If you don’t want a taxi, walk and shine to the envy of passers-by, it’s even more interesting.

About loans

Operators, news

Finally, to surprise you and amuse you a little (I hope) with a piece of offtopic. There is a financial organization "Home Money", which specializes in loans at very unkind interest rates. From time to time they please me with press releases with interesting statistics, below are fragments from fresh. For example, I have always believed that such organizations are addressed only to get by before the salary and / or those to whom banks no longer give loans, and the money is desperately needed for something urgent and vital. It turned out that not quite so.

Operators, news

They buy, among other things, expensive household appliances, update TVs. It is unlikely that the house did not have a TV at all, but they take a microloan at such interest to buy a new one.

Operators, news

But this is depressing, 60% of loans for the education of children fall on the payment for kindergarten. It already looks like life in a deep debt hole, and then the child is then collected and prepared for school. And a list of not quite ordinary purposes of loans taken:

  1. Paying a notary and a lawyer to receive an inheritance
  2. Interview clothing (suit), fur coat
  3. Purchase of animals for further breeding
  4. Paying alimony and debts for housing and communal services for traveling abroad (near abroad)
  5. Gasoline for motor vehicles, so as not to use public transport
  6. Fitness membership
  7. Payment for travel (Crimea, Krasnodar Territory)
  8. Reconciliation gift for wife (jewelry, latest phone)
  9. For the services of a lawyer
  10. Veterinary fees for exotic pets
  11. Purchasing alcohol
  12. Purchasing a drone
  13. Replenishment of the collection (coins, stamps)
  14. Buying clothes for animals
  15. Bribe

Okay, the need to give a bribe or cure an animal is force majeure, paying for an inheritance is logical. But to take an expensive loan for a subscription to a fitness center or to buy alcohol? The fur coat and the drone on the list also look good. I don’t understand something in this life.

Operators, news

The main news is that they are seriously discussing the possibility of using a SIM card as an identity identifier. Is it necessary and how realistic? MTS abandoned the completely free intranet in the Super MTS tariff, replacing it with a connection fee. And also other news.

The prospect of turning a SIM card into a kind of passport analogue is definitely the news of the season. A large and detailed article with comments in Izvestia. Interestingly, at the beginning of the month I wrote that more and more services are starting to require a phone number even without a clear need, you can read the review here. One of the readers wrote in the comments that the Yandex.Metro program demanded a phone number from him, if he didn’t mess up anything, then this is a vivid example. If cards can still be considered a messenger with a big stretch, then the metro map.

As a replacement for a passport or other identity card, it is unlikely, but as an additional identifier it is quite possible. Actually, movement in this direction is clearly visible, which I wrote about last time. But I had no idea that things had gone so far. Anatoly Aksakov, head of the State Duma committee on the financial market, said that there are no plans to replace the passports of Russian citizens with SIM cards, but the key word here is “replace”. Let's not confuse concepts, we are not talking about replacement, but about additional identification.

The official argument "for" is the convenience of citizens who have forgotten their documents at home. And the phone, they say, is almost never forgotten. Who would doubt, everything is for the good of man. I would like to remind you of the huge amount of information about yourself that we leave everywhere. Capabilities of cellular networks (calls, positioning, mobile Internet), social networks, instant messengers. If the sim card is uniquely tied to a certain person, then after some analysis of the data received, you can not only find out the whole past, but also predict the future. For example, it is highly likely to predict where a person will be tomorrow afternoon or in a week, as well as who they will meet and what they will do.

With arguments against. They are now tightening the procedures for buying and receiving SIM cards, but if you declare the number an official “identity card”, even if it is additional, then a lot of procedures will have to be revised. In legislation too. The office of the operator or dealer is not the Ministry of Internal Affairs, but the SIM card is not a strict reporting form. Although someone has already joked that they will give out SIM cards in police stations, and change those that have deteriorated in two weeks.

It's impossible to clone modern sim cards, that's good. But what about replacing https://cars45.com/listing/nissan/titan/2005 by proxy? In general, prohibit transferring a sim card to another person? And what about the phone numbers issued to the organization? Access to some unified database (registry) for all organizations? The kids, who are now almost in kindergarten already with a phone.

It seems to me that all these conversations-discussions have a single goal: to strictly observe the binding of a number to a certain person, and explain this by caring for a person and the convenience of such identification for the population.

They also reminded us of the famous "Permits" for using a mobile phone with a hologram, print and plastic. It was necessary to carry with you and present at the request of the police.
