Sevastopol’s Sevtelecom users get Russian mobile roaming

6 May 2016

In an announcement on its website dated 29 April 2016, Sevastopol-based Sevtelecom disclosed that its mobile division SevMobile has attained mobile roaming agreements for the whole of Russia. SevMobile launched its consumer packages of SIM cards with voice and mobile internet access on 19 February 2016 and says it has signed up 5,000 subscribers so far. Russia administers the city as part of the Crimean Federal District (incorporating the Federal City of Sevastopol and the Republic of Crimea) although the Crimean peninsula is still regarded as part of Ukraine by many other countries. None of the main Russian mobile providers (MTS, MegaFon, Beeline and Tele2) operate in Crimea.
