среда, января 27, 2016

At MTS, we are always looking for innovative ways to stimulate consumption of data and value-added services within our customer base. As demand is growing for high-quality – and legal – music content, we  have partnered with Yandex to launch MTS Music, a service based on Yandex’s popular Yandex Music platform. MTS Music is a continuously updated online catalogue with over 20 million songs in different genres and styles, including the recently released hits. Customers can listen to music online through apps available on the Android and iOS platforms, download favorite tracks on smartphones, or listen to curated or customer-created playlists.

MTS has enhanced our voice & data tariff plans (Smart and Ultra) to offer free access to MTS Music during the first month to customers who migrate to these tariff plans after January 20,, 2016. After the first month, customers will be able to continue using a limited version of the service for another two months for free or access the full version for RUB 150 per month.

We are pleased to share results of measurements taken during 2014 by mobile subscribers throughout Russia using the popular application ‘Speedtest’, which was developed by Ookla.

Based on over 7.7 million measurements conducted from January to December 2014, MTS can demonstrate leadership in data transfer speeds across Russia. The average downlink speed recorded on MTS’s 2G/3G/LTE networks across Russia during 2014 was 8% higher than the average of its competitors.  In Moscow, MTS’s networks deliver speeds, which exceed the average of its competitors by 13%.

In 2014, MTS installed over 15,000 3G and LTE sites throughout Russia. By the end of the year, MTS offers LTE services in 76 regions of Russia, while over 85% of its 3G network was enabled by Dual-Carrier HSPA+. MTS’s fiber networks grew to 160,000 km as MTS continues its focus on developing data markets throughout the region.
