Recently I had another chance to confirm correctness of this statement.
Few weeks ago MTS introduced charges for SMS delivery reports. Similar practices exist in many foreign countries. But on the former Soviet territory there haven’t been such precedents until now. Unpopular innovation caused heavy criticism among users.
Angry messages and scandalous headlines flooded internet and newspapers. My immediate reaction was negative as well. It seemed as if company repeated its earlier mistakes when – in 2006 – it worsened its “unlimited” tariffs for subscribers.
