Sochi : La data disponible seulement avec MegaFon (et Cellhire)

 

“Les services mobiles data sur Sochi ne seront pas disponibles pour les utilisateurs des autres réseaux russes, ni même pour les lignes en itinérance sur le réseau MegaFon, pendant les jeux olympiques et paralympiques” a indiqué Tigran Poghosyan, le responsable du projet Sochi 2014.

Toujours selon Mr Poghosyan, les services Voix et SMS seront disponibles pour tous les utilisateurs en itinérance sur le réseau MegaFon, mais la transmission data, 3G ou 4G, ne fonctionnera que pour les clients propres de MegaFon.

Cellhire, qui travaille en partenariat avec MegaFon, proposera des lignes locales du réseau russe et permettra ainsi à ses clients de pouvoir se connecter à internet pendant les Jeux de Sochi.

MegaFon a améliorer de façon conséquente la couverture réseau sur Sochi et dispose maintenant de 685 antennes 2G/3G, de 270 antennes 4G et de 15 stations mobiles.

Only MegaFon (and Cellhire) have mobile data in Sochi

Cellhire’s partnership with MegaFon means that only domestic MegaFon customers and international customers of Cellhire will have access to mobile data and 4G in Sochi.

Subscribers to other mobile operators connecting to the MegaFon network will only be able to use voice services and SMS-messages while data services, including 4G, will be available only to MegaFon customers.

Mobile Data services in Sochi will not be available to subscribers of other mobile operators who manually choose the MegaFon network on their mobile devices during the Olympic and Paralympic Games, said Tigran Poghosyan, the head of the Sochi 2014 project.

According to Mr. Poghosyan, voice services and SMS-messages will be available to the subscribers of other mobile operators who will connect to the MegaFon network, while data transmission services, including 4G, will be available only to MegaFon subscribers.

Digit.ru previously reported that MegaFon and Rostelecom signed a sponsorship contract with the Olympic Games in Sochi back in 2009, for a cost of 130 million dollars each. The operators have also invested another $100 million in the infrastructure of the region.

As of December 2012, MegaFon has opened up its infrastructure in Sochi to other operators that require coverage at the Winter Games. In order to connect to the MegaFon network, users will need to manually select the MegaFon network on their mobile device, or purchase MegaFon SIM-card.

The head of the Sochi 2014 project pointed out that other network operators present in Sochi signed an inter-operator agreement, which insures that while using the MegaFon network, subscribers of another operator will be charged prices consistent with their tariff plan.

Currently the Sochi Branch of MegaFon comprises 685 standard 2G/3G base stations, about 270 4G base stations and 15 movable mobile stations. The number of MegaFon subscribers in the region amounts to more than 300,000 people.

Cellhire, the international mobile communications specialist, has committed significant resource over the last two years to break into the Russian market in preparation for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. Milestones have included opening a Moscow office in September 2012 and establishing partnerships for delivering products and services within Russia.

Around 15,000 connections have been delivered by Cellhire for the Winter Olympics through their partnership with MegaFon, the Russian mobile network. Leading media companies from around the world and numerous Olympic organisations have been using Cellhire’s products and services on location from as early as August 2013 as they geared up for the Games. Cellhire has successfully worked with MegaFon at other major events in Russia as recently as the World Athletics Championships in Moscow in 2013.

A Russian presence for the company has been critical to achieving success in Sochi and enables the business to capitalise on the FIFA World Cup in Russia in 2018.

Tim Williams, Chairman and CEO of Cellhire said, ‘Our record year at the London Olympics working with key sponsors, Olympic organisations and some of the world’s biggest media corporations has given us great momentum to build on at events outside of the UK. We are delighted with our success in Sochi and our progress in Russia over the past 18 months.’

Cellhire’s unique agreement with MegaFon has enabled the company to offer English voicemail services and 4G coverage in Sochi. No other Russian networks will be offering these services making Cellhire’s mobile offers some of the best and fastest available at the Games.

Commenting on the Cellhire and MegaFon partnership, Bogdanova Nadejda, Senior Development Manager of Small and Medium Business at MegaFon said: “The unique offers we have with Cellhire have put us in an excellent position to maximise the inbound opportunities coming to our region in the near future.”
