the PROBLEM
 
Why it is difficult to phone in New year
 
the Peak of calls to other cities and the countries is necessary for a while since seven evenings till three nights when all aspire to congratulate each other happy New Year.
 
- Most of all Muscovites call to Petersburg, Moscow suburbs, Voronezh, Novgorod, Tula, Kaluga, Chelyabinsk and Ufa, - have told in the Moscow branch Rostelecom . - That everything have phoned, we include additional channels and we increase number of operators of service of Custom-made communication.
 
the Same with mobile phones: communication channels appear are occupied, and it is impossible to phone. SMS too reach not at once, and rise in turn. As modern tubes had a function of bulk mailing identical SMS to many addresses.
 
- So it is better to do it till 11 evenings or after 2 nights, - recommends Evgenie Dyomin from the Moscow branch Vympelcom .
 
to make the way on a line, use function avtodo - a ring.
 
There is also a supervision that on a straight line number is easier to phone, typing its full format: +7 - 903 - hhh - hh - hh a Biline +7 - 985 - hhh - hh - hh (MTS).
 
 
 
the INNOVATION
 
SMS it is possible to send on any device
 
already wrote that Muscovites had a possibility to send SMS - messages from stationary phones (from February, 20th of this year and number see a site www.) . However, special devices with the monitor (the list of such models look more low) are for this purpose necessary. Now to accept SMS it is possible on any stationary phones. The message text will be read by the automatic operator. And if at you the fax, SMS is unpacked. Cost of one message on stationary phone - 75 copecks, on mobile - 1 rouble (plus a monthly fee for such service - 54 roubles a month).
 
two More innovations: in - the first, now it is possible to send messages on electronic mail, and in - the second, it is possible to dispatch one pressing at once 10 identical SMS to different people. All can be made it only with heaped up devices with monitors. New services will work some months in a test mode and all this time will be free.

  a leah
Will take away from area direct Moscow phones?
 
Inhabitants of Moscow suburbs continue struggle for accessible communication with capital
 
Alexey Samohvalov and initiative group of nine persons have begun campaign against regional signalmen. We will remind, they want to translate all direct Moscow phones with a code 495 on situated near Moscow with codes 496 and 498 (it is detailed about it we wrote to October, 31st of this year and on a site www.) . Inhabitants of Moscow suburbs have received these numbers in Soviet period.
 
If changes will occur, then it is necessary to pay for a call to capital as under long distance communication tariffs: 2,5 roubles a minute since 8 mornings till 8 evenings in everyday life and 1,5 roubles in a minute since 8 evenings till 8 mornings and in target (now a payment only user`s - 200 roubles a month).
 
Replacement will concern 484 000 inhabitants even such, apparently, already Moscow areas, as Khimki, Mytischi, Odintsovo, Reutov, and also hundreds thousand the Muscovites, got used to call in area free of charge.
 
- And you have counted social consequences? - Alexey Samohvalov was converted to signalmen. - Imagine the lonely older persons, living only vesper conversations by phone with the native. They will appear in full isolation! And how to call on telephone hotlines - all of them in Moscow?! How to call in authorities of Moscow Region - they too in capital?! How much will be from it strokes, heart attacks?
 
In January Samohvalov will open a site on the Internet. There it will be possible to find the sample of the statement of claim against operators. And in the meantime the initiative group pesters the State Dumas and representations of the president in the Central district. The governor of Moscow Region of Thunders has responded meanwhile only. He has written the letter to the Minister of Communications with the request to protect subscribers. The answer while is not present. And TSentrtelekom has already made on Samohvalova the claim in court about protection of business reputation.
 
- We translate numbers under the writ of federal bodies, - signalmen speak. Is not our decision, we here at anything.
 
 
 
how the situation will develop, will necessarily inform in the following numbers.
