Kyrgyzstan mobile operator Megacom has launched its 3G network in Bishkek. The Chuya region also will be covered with the network soon, and 3G services will be launched in other regions later. Megacom said customers will have access to data services up to 30 times faster and the cost of 1MB of traffic will be three times cheaper. Customers can choose from three types of billing: an anytime rate for 3G or GPRS at KGS 1.95 per MB, subscribe to a bundle of data and pay as little as KGS 0.23, or take the plan for tablets and USB modems and pay KGS 1.5 per MB during the day and KGS 0.75 at night. The Huawei E173 USB modem supporting speeds up to 7.2Mbps is available for KGS 1,650 and comes with 10MB data per day free for 30 days.
