Abusing 3G connection in Russia can win you a vacation








You may stand to win a vacation if you abuse your 3G connection in Russia, an operator by the name MegaFon is rewarding it’s consumers with $5,000 worth holiday for the highest data usage between Nov 1 2011 to Jan 31 2012, a customer won this contest within just week of buying his connection.

MegaFon is running contests to handout prizes worth $33,000. I wonder if any such contests can ever come up in a market like India which is currently battling to come out of the 2G scam mess and operators struggling to push 3G adoption with mass telecom market. Indications are on the way that call prices would go northwards with some operators that may get left out and competition suddenly going low.

and this article from TheNextWeb quotes that MegaFon actually adheres to unlimited as unlimited data plan rather than too many “conditions apply” plans that exist in America/Europe and India as well.
