Summer discounts for cottages and not only

Summer months are a traditional time of some calm in the mobile communications market. People are leaving for vacations and dachas, networks in cities are somewhat unloaded, traffic decreases and partially moves towards the region. Especially on weekends. To keep ARPU at an acceptable level during the summer period, operators try to offer discounts and temporary promotions: "extra" traffic can be sold cheaper. Today's news - "Summer Unlimited" Beeline and the tariff "Regional" MTS.

MTS: Cheaper in the region

See the news about the "Regional" tariff here, a detailed description - here. The highlight of the tariff is that all local calls on weekends will cost 1 rub./min., on weekdays - 3 rubles. The ruble on weekends will be valid until September 30, then there will be a scheme of 3 rubles from the region, 5 from Moscow. Nothing new was invented, a few years ago, tariffs with different price per minute in Moscow and the region were quite popular. I recall the famous advertisement with summer residents on the train and ringing phones, to which no one reacted before crossing the Moscow border. Of course, the tariffication border does not coincide with the Moscow Ring Road, and this is the subject of a separate discussion.

The tariff is clearly not massive and will not collect many new connections, however, it is very good for summer residents near Moscow. Especially for those who travel to the country on weekends. Three rubles per minute on weekdays is also quite humane, although there are more attractive tariffs for long conversations. Prices are well done (ruble - three - five), easy to remember and well perceived. It's nice that they refrained from crafty numbers like 2 rubles. 95 kopecks

A serious pitfall is the geography of Moscow and the Moscow region in the understanding of MTS. Before going to the communication salon for a new box, it makes sense to carefully read the map (file about 1 Mb), the tariff zone "Capital" goes beyond the borders of Moscow for more than a dozen kilometers. The map is also not the ultimate truth, even clearly in the "Region" zone, the billing may turn out to be "capital". Quote from the MTS website:

“Due to the peculiarities of the propagation of radio waves and the terrain, the border between the tariff zones “Capital”, “Region” and other regions is approximate. Tariffication of a local call in the tariff zones "Capital", "Region" is determined by the location of the base station that served this call at the time of connection.

During the conversation, the billing does not change. Those. starting a conversation in the “Region” zone, we will pay one ruble per minute, even moving to the “Capital”. The same applies to time limits: a conversation that began on Sunday at one minute to midnight will be fully charged at reduced rates.

Beeline: unlimited calls to "favorite" numbers

Another summer promotion, a detailed description can be found here. The essence of the offer is unlimited communication with three favorite numbers until the end of summer (until August 31) for a subscription fee of 8.95 rubles. per day. An important limitation is that the selected numbers must be Beeline numbers in the home region. If landlines are already connected as favorites, then for the duration of the action they need to be replaced with Beeline numbers. You can change numbers, but each change of one number will cost 15 rubles, the same is the cost of joining the campaign. We carefully study the connection procedure, there are important “little things”. For example, even if you change only one favorite number, you should send the entire list again in an SMS message. The summer promotion is available on almost all tariffs, but there are exceptions:

“Subscribers of all GSM settlement systems - individuals, with the exception of subscribers served according to tariff plans Free style, Super GSM, Super GSM +, Country in touch, GSM-Elite, I want to say (prepaid) and Simple things.

To listen to information and connect on credit tariffs, it is proposed to call the toll-free number 0668, I personally have not been able to get through yet ("The dialed number does not exist"). The subscriber service refers to the congestion of the number due to the large number of applicants and offers to do everything manually; for prepaid tariffs, you can connect with the USSD command.

At first glance, the offer looks like a blatant dumping, unlimited communication with three subscribers at the price of half a bottle of beer per day. https://cars45.com.gh/8Zrocy0zxB6LvL4jXItotsBk look for better seasonal offers from other operators. And the “extra ten bucks” of an increase in the ARPU of each participant is very good for a period of summer calm. Not to mention one of the main goals of such actions: having got used to talking freely and a lot over the summer, it will be difficult for us to return to the previous style of communication in September.
