"Planet Zero", "Beeline". Rate "Planet Zero": reviews
It's no secret that mobile communication services betweencountries are charged on a different basis, as opposed to conversations within the state. This is normal, since operators provide them not independently, by their own means, but in an arrangement with other service providers. Since all this is limited by the financial relationships between the companies, the cost of calls for subscribers can vary. Therefore, if you try hard - you can find tariff plans that will be more profitable for calls abroad.
One of them is the tariff Planet Zero. Beeline is one of the most popular mobile operators in Russia, it provides it specifically for subscribers who are abroad, wishing to talk with their relatives and friends in Russia. About why this plan is so beneficial and what conditions it provides, read in our article.
General tariff conditions
The fact that the tariff plan "Planet Zero" ("Beeline"is its supplier) is beneficial for people who are abroad, the operator indicates on his official website and in any promotional materials that relate to the service. First of all, users can see a bright heading informing that those entering from the RF to the numbers serviced on this plan are absolutely free.
Of course, for communication within the country it looks likewildly; Do operators charge you for calling you? But if we talk about roaming, then this practice is absolutely normal. When the subscriber is in another state and he is called, most often he himself pays for the conversation. You can also recall the heyday of the mobile communication era, when you had to pay for an incoming call even in your region. Therefore, in fact, this feature of Planet Zero Beeline made it quite profitable for the subscriber. However, it is important to mention one limitation - it is about the first 20 minutes of conversation. Further discussions will be charged at a rate of 10 rubles per minute for the first category of countries. About what this means, we tell in more detail.
Cost of services for subscribers in "popular" countries
Given the different features of the arrangementsmobile operators of other countries and Beeline, Planet Zero (how to connect the tariff, we will describe further) assumes an unequal cost of services in each individual country. Therefore, all regions of the world were divided into several groups.
The first includes Europe, the CIS countries and somepopular destinations for Russian subscribers, such as Egypt, China, the United States or Thailand. For them, there is a tariff - for one day of use you have to pay 60 rubles; In addition, the first 20 minutes of incoming conversation are free, after which the cost of each reaches 10 rubles. As for the outgoing call, it will cost the subscriber 20 rubles per minute. SMS messages from these countries to Russia will cost 7 rubles.
Communication prices for other countries
In addition to the above-mentioned group of countries, there isanother one. It unites some of the remaining regions, which are obviously less popular for the domestic user of mobile communication services, so roaming "Beeline" ("Planet Zero") in them will cost more. In particular, the daily fee for the subscriber is 100 rubles, and incoming calls from Russia after the 20th minute rise to 15 rubles. At the same time, the price of every minute of outgoing calls increases to 45 rubles. SMS messages are becoming less expensive - up to 9 rubles.
List of countries that belong to this category,more. This includes, for example, Israel, India, Japan, the countries of Africa and the Middle East. The higher price of services, obviously, is explained by the lower demand of subscribers in these areas. At the same time, Planet Zero tariff Beeline makes it more profitable than some service packages of other operators. So if you love (or are forced to) travel, this package deserves your attention. As you can see, it extends its effect even to exotic states.
Finally, there is a group of countries in whichthe service can not be connected, and the tariff action does not imply any discounts. In view of what it happens, it is difficult to say, because "Beeline" does not give any explanation. Just for some oceanic island and unrecognized states: Cuba, Jamaica, Tunisia and Bahrain, Kosovo and Abkhazia - "Planet Zero" ("Beeline" about it openly points to its website) does not extend its discount. Therefore, the subscriber fee is not withdrawn from the user, but the cost of incoming calls is 30 rubles per minute, outgoing calls - 60 rubles, and the price of one SMS reaches 9 rubles.
