Back to the future: MTS reintroduces intra-net national roaming charges

27 Oct 2016

Russia’s Mobile TeleSystems (MTS) has reintroduced a form of national roaming charge for its subscribers on certain tariffs who use the MTS network outside of their home region (oblast), reports Tdaily. From 25 October MTS customers eligible for the charge must pay RUB15 (USD0.24) per day for using their mobile phone in other oblasts, a strategy which Tdaily refers to as reverting ‘back to the 1990s’. For subscribers intending to ‘roam nationally’ for seven days or more in a given month, MTS is offering the option of a monthly RUB100 flat fee.
