Clients of Korean KT Corporation, Swiss Swisscom, French Bouygues Telecom, American AT&T Mobility and Canadian Rogers Communications will be able to switch to MegaFon’s 4G network on arrival at the capital of the XXII Olympic Winter Games. High-speed mobile Internet from MegaFon will allow foreign guests of the Olympics to make online reports in social networks, post photos and upload useful applications at speed up to 50 Mbit /s.

“To ensure the highest quality of service, MegaFon has built the most up-to-date mobile communications infrastructure in Sochi. We are ready to host subscribers of foreign mobile operators in our network and provide them with an opportunity to fully enjoy high-speed mobile Internet at the key Olympic sites, — says Tigran Pogosyan, Deputy General Director for Strategic Projects at MegaFon. — To do this they will need to choose MegaFon in their phone settings and switch to it manually. I also recommend checking the cost of service with your operator in advance in order to avoid unexpected charges”.

Special booklets in English have been developed for foreign visitors that contain detailed instructions on how to switch to the MegaFon network. The booklets can be found at the information desks.
