[edit] Prepaid plans

Russia is the largest country in the world, and when coming here you should remember that there are only 3 operators with a national coverage : Beeline, Megafon and MTS; Tele2 operates only in 37 regions of 88. Tariffs vary from region to region thus it is quite difficult to list all of them. Taking into consideration that Moscow rates are usually the highest in the country other regions have the same tariffs but with cheaper rates.
