Colorful zones for students and not only

Zones are different. Some are nice to be in, others are better off. Today we will talk about the future striped zone of intranet roaming and new red zones for students. At the same time, we will deal with some marketing tricks and the sacraments of tariffing, useful for the wallet and the development of spatial imagination.

Beeline-Moscow: End of home tariffs for roaming in the Central region?

I'm already tired of repeating about the "Friday phenomenon" every time. As soon as not very good or suspicious news, they strive to publish it on Friday afternoon, perhaps it will drown in a heap of fresh events and slip through unnoticed. And vice versa, everything cheerful and life-affirming often materializes on Mondays and Tuesdays. Friday's news from Beeline is worth quoting in its entirety, the original is here. We read and try to assess the “scale of the disaster.”

From October 2, new conditions for tariffication of calls are introduced for subscribers of the prepaid system when they are in the territory of the Central Region. Outside the Moscow region, tariffs for intranet roaming will apply by default.

At any point in the Central Region, you can use mobile communication services on "home" conditions: call within Russia and other countries, send SMS, MMS, use GPRS services at your "home" tariff! It is enough to activate the new Home Region service, which we will be happy to offer you from October 2.

Discarding all sorts of "we will be happy to offer you", in the bottom line we get three important facts:

1. The action of home tariffs in the Central region is canceled, and from October 2, the default rates for intra-network roaming begin to operate.
2. What was free and by default (the action of home tariffs) will now be issued as some kind of “additional service” (probably paid). Those who guessed the consequences and managed to navigate the events will be able to connect the service, those who did not guess ... Although we will not rush things, it is not yet clear how it will all look like.
3. Tariffication at intranet roaming rates is included only on prepaid tariffs (most subscribers). Postpaid (credit) tariffs will be served on the same terms for the time being. It is unlikely that we are talking about certain benefits and preferences, although everything can be. However, the hypothesis of phased implementation on different billing systems seems more likely.

What will be the financial implications for subscribers? Hard to say. It is possible that they will fully preserve the effect of home tariffs and introduce a scheme of a daily subscription fee for the “Home Region” service. For example, in St. Petersburg for such a "service" they will withdraw 30 kopecks a day from a personal account. It is clear that in the Moscow region the rates will be completely different, but the pricing principle itself may be the same.

We should not forget that billing at home tariff rates in neighboring regions has been one of the most important "trump cards" of Beeline for many years. Indeed, having left somewhere in the Tver province, the subscriber continues to be served at home prices, which very many people willingly used. In MegaFon-Moscow, intra-network roaming is charged outside the Moscow region, all incoming and outgoing calls within Russia begin to be charged at 9 rubles. in a minute. In MTS for a number of regions there is a cunning scheme of "preferential intra-network roaming" with the preservation of free incoming calls. A very interesting diagram with a boring note to the words "Your home tariff." An important note that increases the cost of a minute of many outgoing calls several times. On some tariffs - ten times or more. It is clear that Beeline was not interested in forever remaining a “black sheep”, sooner or later the geography and intra-network roaming rates had to be revised. After the publication of the rates, we will definitely compare the prices and analyze the "little tricks" of the intra-network roaming billing. In the meantime, all Beeline subscribers moving outside the Moscow region can be advised to closely follow the news, because price surprises are not ruled out.

RED Zone MTS: for students and teachers

The zonal billing scheme is nothing new and has been used by all operators for many years. True, in Russia this scheme is used mainly in contracts with large corporate clients. The idea is a special preferential tariffication within the coverage of certain base stations and even their individual sectors: left the territory of the enterprise - pay more for the call. Abroad, it is actively used to install telephones in areas where it is unprofitable to haul a telephone cable, and it is inhumane to force residents to pay for communication at home at standard mobile rates. In MTS-Moscow, they decided to make happy students of metropolitan universities connected to the RED and RED_text tariff plans with such a scheme. Strictly for the duration of their stay within the walls of their favorite educational institutions. In other regions, clubs and other useful “points” were noticed in the lists of “privileged”, but in Moscow, only the territories of educational institutions have been lucky so far.

The scheme works simply: for a one-time fee of 75 rubles. RED and RED_text tariff subscribers receive a 50% discount on all outgoing calls to other MTS subscribers in their region. The service is activated by the USSD command *111*90#, disconnected - *111*91#. Although there is no point in disabling the service, 75 rubles will not be returned to the account anyway. The service does not apply to cheap calls within the RED tariff, only calls to subscribers of other MTS tariff plans will be halved in price. Most of all, students with the activated “Zach0t” service and non-students with the “REDaction” service will be most pleased: now these lucky ones will cost a rupee with small kopecks per minute to make calls to any MTS subscribers in their region. By the way, those who have connected the Gamer service to RED_text are also not bad: a 50% "gaming" discount on calls to MTS subscribers is added to the "red zone" one.

The list of preferential zones includes 12 educational institutions: Moscow State University, Moscow State Technical University, MIREA, MIPT, MSGU, MESI, MAI, MADI, GGU, RGGU, RUDN, REA. Students will probably recognize “their” institutes and universities in the list, but the rest of the decoding of the names is still not interesting: why not enter a certain institution for the sake of a discount on calls to MTS subscribers?

There is still a suspicion that by introducing the "red zone" in MTS, they decided to test the zone billing on the popular Foris and, in the end, transfer their most valuable corporate subscribers to this billing. Be that as it may, you can donate 75 rubles to your favorite operator for such a discount. Of course, if you visit alma mater not only twice a year during the sessions, are connected to the RED or RED_text tariff and communicate not only through ICQ and SMS messages The Church & Reconstruction of Africa.
