Moscow – Tele2, an alternative mobile operator, has commissioned the LTE network in Omsk Region. High-speed wireless Internet is now available to residents of Moscow and nearby suburbs.
The 4G Internet is available to 58% of Omsk Region residents, whereas the LTE network is now covering 100%. The network is working in the 1800 MHz spectrum band, providing wide coverage and high data speed. The frequency band’s parameters allow the comfort use of high-speed Internet not only in the city streets but also indoors.
Tele2 has been gradually launching the 4G technology: in 1Q17, residents of Omsk could test high-speed wireless Internet in popular city locations. Real loads on base stations allowed the company to more accurately forecast the user behavior and fine-tune the network in compliance with the clients’ needs by the official launch.
Along with the 4G launch, the operator has introduced a new tariff range in the region: “My Tele2”, “My Online”, “My Online+” and “My Talk”. The main features of the operator’s proposals are free-toll calls to Tele2 numbers in a home region and all over Russia that do not expend a bundle of minutes. These tariffs provide unlimited access to social networks and messengers. In travels across Russia, Internet traffic is charged at home region rates, whereas all incoming calls are free of charge. All minutes, SMS and gigabytes unused in the current month are transferred onto the next period.
High-speed wireless Internet in the 4G standard is already available to Tele2 subscribers in 26 constituent territories of the Russian Federation: Moscow and Moscow Region, St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region, in Chelyabinsk, Irkutsk, Kemerovo, Omsk, Orel, Novosibirsk, Nizhniy Novgorod, Rostov, Sverdlovsk, Tambov, Tula, Ulyanovsk and Voronezh regions, the Chuvash Republic, republics of Komi, Mordovia, Khakasia and Karelia, the Krasnodar Territory and the Republic of Adygea, the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area and the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Area.
