Opera and MegaFon Signs Mobile Internet DealIn yesterday’s press release, Opera Software and Russian mobile operator MegaFon, has announced a new partnership, under which MegaFon’s “Unlimited Internet with Opera Mini” package will be made available to all Russian territories (that’s more than 53 million mobile subscribers total).

Back in September 2009, MegaFon signed a similar deal that provided unlimited mobile web access to Moscow region only.

However, as press release says:

The dramatic user growth seen as the result of the “Unlimited Internet with Opera Mini” plan persuaded MegaFon to provide this package in all Russian regions in their coverage area.
Ural and Siberia were the next areas to gain access to fast and cost-effective mobile web via Opera Mini after Moscow. The remaining regions will gain access from June 2010.

      It appears that they charge for days instead of MBs

       

      MegaFon is the leader of mobile Internet in Russia, serving 39 percent of mobile web traffic (according to ComNews Research). In September 2009, MegaFon chose Opera Mini as the means to provide unlimited mobile web access in the Moscow region for just 7 roubles (0.18 EUR) per day.

        0.18 per day would be a price I personally would totally be comfortable with. (this is… 1.26 a week or about 5,7 a month…. for UNLIMITED access, this is a very cheap offer :) )

        • nvm

          Is it cheap for Russians, though?

    Oh, I’m actually from Russia and I love Opera Desktop. And be sure the offer from Megafon is quite cheap for Russians too, the only thing is that you should surf only with Opera Mini (and it’s the best for mobiles, but quite unappropriate for touchscreen smartphones line iPhone or HTC for example – that’s why this offer is useless for me and my HTC Legend). I hope Opera will release some specified Opera Mini touchscreen edition, something like Opera Sense, i don’t know.
