MegaFon provides data, cellular service during Paralympic games

MegaFon, an official sponsor of the 2014 Sochi Paralympic Winter Games, announced that it has fulfilled its obligation to the International Paralympic Committee to provide data and cellular service during the games.

Over the course of the 10-day Paralympic games, MegaFon facilitated more than 400,000 hours of talk time--the equivalent of 45 years. Moreover, the company reports that it provided 160 TB of data and provided the infrastructure for the delivery of more than 14 million text messages.

"Now we can confidently say that the interest of the audience for the Paralympic Games is quite comparable to the activities of the audience during the Olympics," MegaFon Deputy Director for Strategic Products Tigran Poghosyan said.

MegaFon has been a sponsor of the Russian Olympic and Paralympic games since 2011.
