MGTS it is necessary to achieve increase of the fixed licence fee at least to 325 rbl. to keep incomes at former level. And passed on povremenku subscribers will form additional incomes of the company. However I consider that FST will not allow to raise tariffs at once on 60 %, after all till now MGTS was possible to raise them in steps maximum on 20 %. Means, it is possible to expect that new tariffs for limitless communication will make 250 - 300 rbl. a month.

So, Internet users not especially favoured the limitless tariff plans offered when - that operators for the high price. The same model of behaviour most likely will be characteristic and for the fixed telephony. If the price seems to the subscriber too high, it will pass on povremenku or cellular communication. Introduction of new tariffs even more will aggravate a competition between mobile communication and a traditional telephony - Tatyana Tolmachyov, an analyst iKS - Consulting results counterarguments.
