3G: First - Internet and Mail

    How exactly will the Big Three mobile operators manage the received 3G licenses? MTS President Leonid Melamed partially answered this question today . In his opinion, the most popular services in 3G networks at first will be access to the Internet and e-mail. Non-voice services will also be in demand, namely, the transfer of video content, online games, etc. In addition, Melamed noted, B2B services seem to be promising for 3G networks, for example, banking services, including cashless payments.

    Voice services, according to the head of MTS, will not go beyond 2G for a long time. But the company plans to offer subscribers, including mixed packages of 2G and 3G services. In this regard, one of the most important technical tasks is to provide reliable handover (automatic switching of a subscriber device) between 2G and 3G networks.
