The company’s roaming partner was Orange Telecommunications Group, which provides mobile services in 23 countries. The first country where this service will be available is Romania, RIA News. The agreement will allow MegaFon subscribers to register on a 5G network and use the ultra-fast mobile Internet under conditions similar to roaming on regular networks.
“Together with Orange, for the first time, we are discovering the possibilities of 5G roaming for Russian mobile users. Very soon, our travellers in other countries will be able to evaluate the speeds of the ultrafast mobile Internet without changing their SIM cards,” said Megafon’s Commercial Director Vlad Wolfson.
Connecting to the network is possible using smartphones Samsung Galaxy Note 10 5G, Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, Samsung Galaxy Fold 5G, Huawei Mate 20 X, Xiaomi Mi Mix3 5G, Vivo Nex3 5G and other models. Depending on the version of the device, a subscriber may need to switch the device to 5G mode and select the Orange network manually.
Mobile Internet is a popular service for Megafon subscribers who are going to international roaming. In 2019, the volume of traffic in the networks of the operator’s foreign partners increased 2.5 times compared to the previous year. European countries account for 52% of the total data transfer in roaming.
