A number of Russian telecom operators have introduced a fee for the purchase of a SIM card – Teller Report Teller Report

A number of telecom operators in Russia have begun to charge for the purchase of new SIM cards. According to the companies, in this way they are trying to compensate for the increase in the cost of providing communication services.

“When a new subscriber is connected, 50 rubles from the initial payment is now immediately debited for the activation of the number,” TASS quotes a statement from the press service of MegaFon.

The company clarified that the cost of the SIM cards themselves has increased several times this year.

The press service of Yota confirmed that the fee for a SIM card is related to the updated pricing of their production.

In March, it was reported that the Federal Antimonopoly Service, together with the Russian Ministry of Digital Development, would control the growth in prices for cellular communications in the country.
