About package tariffs "400"

The reason for writing this review was the change in Smart Nonstop tariff. The appearance of the new version was announced on November 20, and I did not expect serious improvements. However, the tariff was clearly improved, and it became interesting to look at its position next to similar offers from colleagues in the market.

Background

The previous version of Smart Nonstop appeared at the beginning of August 2015 and was positioned as a solution for those who actively use the mobile Internet in their smartphone and for whom 3 GB on Smart is not enough, and pay 900 rubles. sorry for Smart +. In addition, 1,100 minutes on Smart + might not be necessary, and 5 GB is still not enough. With good 4G speeds, the popularity of video on smartphones has skyrocketed, and Smart Nonstop has closed this niche. For an additional 200 rubles. made a copy of the Smart tariff with a large internet package: 10 GB during the day and full unlimited for several hours at night, our review of the previous Smart Nonstop is here.

There may have been a conflict with the Internet Maxi tariff (700 rubles per month). Taking into account the operation of Smart Nonstop throughout Russia, this tariff with a subscriber is 650 rubles. looked not much worse, and for some even better than the special Internet Maxi. In order to preserve target audiences and avoid user overflow, Smart Nonstop set a ban on the use of a SIM card in modems and routers, and as part of the Unified Internet option, they limited the use of night unlimited on recipient tariffs to a 10 GB package.

New tariff version

What happened now? It turned out interesting and unexpected. The subscription fee was reduced by 150 rubles, now it is 500 rubles. instead of the previous 650 rubles. per month. For this, they reduced packages of minutes and SMS by 100 units (they made 400 instead of the previous 500 minutes and 500 SMS) and raised the price of local SMS by one and a half times over the package. The last one puzzled me a lot: are there really so many people who send 500 or more SMS per month, so that it makes sense to raise the price from 1 to 1.5 rubles. for each message over the packet? Weird, didn't they just do that? Perhaps the “ruble” SMS plus the package conflicts with the prices for SMS mailings, I don’t know. For example, Chinese "masters" sell SMS mailings for 0.88 rubles. for the message at today's rate. But this is a separate issue. In the context of the current event, the main thing for us is that the Internet packages in Smart Nonstop have remained the same, here the effect may be interesting. A pleasant surprise - in the new version of Smart Nonstop, the rounding of the Internet session was left at 100 KB. After the introduction of 200 KB rounding in the new Smart Mini, I had a bad feeling about this topic.

Who is in conflict with whom

So, now we have a direct intersection in the Smart line. Pay 450 rubles/month for Smart with its 500 minutes, 500 SMS and 3 GB of traffic or 500 rubles/month for Smart Nonstop with its 400 minutes, 400 SMS and 10 GB of traffic during the day plus unlimited at night? Please note that as part of the latest “upgrade” of the Smart line, the ban on using a SIM card in modems / routers has now been extended to all tariffs of the line, and now this is a general norm in MTS, and not a separate drawback of the Smart Nonstop tariff.

Total: if you do not get minutes / SMS from the package on the Smart tariff, and actively use mobile Internet, then you have a direct road to Smart Nonstop. Fortunately, once a month the transition is free by law. If you need minutes/SMS on Smart back to back, and you don’t really need the Internet on your smartphone, then this review is not for you (smiley face). Similarly with the old Smart Nonstop: if 400 minutes is enough (order invoices for the last two or three months), then why not switch to a new one? Not God knows what savings, but 150 rubles. you can spend on something useful.

Now let's look at Internet tariffs, in particular, Internet Maxi. In Smart Nonstop we pay 500 rubles. for 10 GB during the day and unlimited at night instead of 700 rubles. for 12 GB during the day and 12 GB at night on Internet Maxi. Undoubtedly, you can’t insert a SIM card into a router in Smart Nonstop, but there was no ban on distributing the Internet from a smartphone via Wi-Fi in the previous description (and the distribution worked), and not in the current one. But Smart Nonstop works throughout Russia “for free”, and not for an additional 50 rubles. per day (. ), as they did in Internet Maxi. I am already silent about 400 minutes and the same number of SMS in Smart Nonstop, in this scenario, minutes / SMS can be considered a nice and free bonus.

Saving 200 rubles. in Smart Nonstop compared to almost the same (or worse) Internet Maxi is obvious. Although there is a subtlety of traffic rounding. Internet Maxi on the "Connect" tariff works with session rounding up to 1 KB, in the Smart Nonstop tariff each session is rounded up to 100 KB. But at least not the cruel 200 KB that MTS recently made in the new edition of Smart Mini. For those who don't read pdf fare descriptions, our chewed-up description of the new Smart Mini is here.

Comparison

Why not compare? Among the package tariffs, the option with 400 minutes is the most popular, and the main struggle in the market is unfolding around these offers. Cheap and "clean" package rates without minute packages to other networks are also popular, but this is a subject for another conversation. Tariffs with 1,000+ package minutes are also in demand, but their popularity is much less.

Unfortunately, MegaFon's current package rates are out of the comparison. Recently, the line has been completely reformatted, removing calls within the network from packages. In the new versions of the tariffs, the included minutes have been made much smaller, but these minutes are spent only “on enemies”, the intranet is not considered. There is no point in discussing “right / wrong” here, those who wish can read the review in which I expressed my opinion. But it has become impossible to compare the current line of MegaFon with the package tariffs of competitors, now they are fundamentally different products.

In the table MTS Smart and the former MTS Smart Nonstop for comparison and understanding of the process of modifications, and the conditionally public (officially it was possible to switch within a week) Beeline tariff “#You Can Do Everything” was included in the table as a clearly targeted offer against the backdrop of the Tele2 tariff . It is possible that the new MTS Smart Nonstop was also laid out, including as a counterbalance to the Tele2 tariff. More expensive by 200 rubles. "Very black", but 2.5 times more Internet with the same number of included minutes and SMS messages.

Summary

I personally see no reason to stay on the old Smart Nonstop. Even if in some months you will not have enough 400 minutes, then 150 rubles. the differences in the subscription fee just cover those 100 minutes, which are more in the old Nonstop.

As for the Smart package tariff, the new Smart Nonstop will be better in most cases. The remaining niche for Smart is not very active Internet users from a smartphone.

With Internet-Maxi, the intersection is even more interesting, and, I'm afraid, there will be many who have not read the note about the impossibility of using SIM-cards with Smart tariffs in modems and routers.

It is possible that the new MTS Smart Nonstop was also laid out, including as a counterbalance to the Tele2 tariff. More expensive by 200 rubles. "Very black", but 2.5 times more Internet with the same number of included minutes and SMS messages.

Summary

I personally see no reason to stay on the old Smart Nonstop. Even if in some months you will not have enough 400 minutes, then 150 rubles. the differences in the subscription fee just cover those 100 minutes, which are more in the old Nonstop.

As for the Smart package tariff, the new Smart Nonstop will be better in most cases. The remaining niche for Smart is not very active Internet users from a smartphone.

With Internet-Maxi, the intersection is even more interesting, and, I'm afraid, there will be many who have not read the note about the impossibility of using SIM-cards with Smart tariffs in modems and routers.
