As I accidentally dug up for myself unlimited (!) Internet on a usb modem from mts, for a minimal fee


Employees pay, it is not advisable to read. Too specific focus of the article.


At the moment, I freely use all the charms of a completely unlimited Internet at a speed of ~ 1-9 Mbit / s (depending on server load) for 300 rubles a month , which I could not afford, just a week ago.
Now, not only my “sim card” is satisfied with the costs of the Internet, and finally the end user of this Internet, i.e. I. Justice triumphs, but I think they will soon close the shop.

Background. Well, it’s impossible without her

So, I am a user of a usb modem from mts, and as an economical student, I connected the cheapest tariff for 250 rubles, with a sad traffic limit of 4 GB / month.
Quite by accident, climbing the MTS website in search of the best deals on tariffs, or even possibly connecting yourself some sort of option. I came across a mysterious option:

Turbo nights
Cost: 50 rubles / month
Validity period: from 03.00 a.m. to 08.00 a.m. (according to the time of the subscriber’s home region)
Unbilled traffic, i.e. full unlimited

Having considered how much I can download torrents in 5 hours, and also, having thought a little with a question above a head:
And I need it?
I came to the conclusion, and the next day, connected for a month, see how it goes.
No wonder, as it turned out.
I downloaded torrents, of course, all night, pumped out more than 15 GB . And soon, he began to notice that upon reaching the time specified in the contract: eight o’clock in the morning, no one had taken the Internet from me and left it still completely free of charge.
I only found out about this when I came from college. I noticed that I forgot to turn off torrents, and the speed was still ~ 8 Mbit / s . It seemed strange to me then, and of course, without hesitation, I decided that the problem was on the server.


After a couple of such strange repetitions of the “problem”, I began to wonder what the reason was. Why, sometimes, when I leave torrents on, at 8 o’clock the Internet does not cut?
I am not completely sure of the problem, but this is my point of view!
The answer was simple - the connection channels are open.
I think: so what, why then the Internet does not always remain at super-speed?
And one time, I came up with a better idea: the speed of polling the seeds.
I opened the terminal and began to push the Yandex server with a simple endless ping: ping
And now, you can even say that I use the Internet as a person!
Having created the task in cron, now I don’t care about this ping, I just come from college and sit down to watch a movie online!
