Despite the active development of wired Internet, there are territories that are not yet covered by the telecom operator's cable. Therefore, some people have to use special devices to access the network - telephones and modems (signal modulator-demodulator).

Mobile operators offer a range of options with which, for a certain subscription fee, you can access the Internet. For example, take "Megaphone".

The company provides its subscribers with the following Internet options (not to be confused with tariffs):

  • Internet on smartphone;
  • XS;
  • S;
  • M;
  • L;
  • XL.

Each service has its own amount of traffic (the number of units of information in megabytes or gigabytes).

The most interesting in terms of capabilities is the "Internet L" "Megaphone" option, the description of which can also be viewed on the official website of the company or received from the support service.

Fare and option

First of all, it is necessary to distinguish between the concepts of option and tariff. Tariff determinesthe basic cost of calls, SMS and traffic. Accordingly, certain conditions of use are provided for the subscriber at the time of connecting the SIM card, and without a tariff, the SIM card cannot be activated. Tariffs offered by Megafon: Switch to 0, Megafon Online, All Inclusive line and others.

The option involves connection, usually with a subscription fee, discounts on something. For example: packages of unlimited SMS, calls, Internet options - basic and renewing.

Which SIM card works

One of the largest cost and traffic options is connected on almost any SIM card, except for a special one, where the "Unlimited GPRS" tariff is set, and no services can be connected.

It must be remembered that the option is activated on the number where there are no such Internet services. If, for example, "Internet M" is connected, but the traffic there has already been exhausted, the "Internet L" "Megaphone" option or another similar service will not work until the previous one is disabled.

Besides, do not forget that some tariffs already include Internet traffic, and there is absolutely no need to connect the service.


"Internet L" works only in the home region. When traveling outside the area, basic Internet rates apply. In Russia, the cost of 1 MB will be 9.90 rubles, in other countries - from 35 per 1 MB.

To enjoyInternet using "home" options outside your region, you need to connect an additional service that will allow you not only to go online while traveling to your destination and upon arrival, but also save money significantly.

The action of any services and activations will start according to the time of the city where the subscriber is located. If a person with a Kemerovo SIM card left for Moscow and connected Internet options or other services, then it will be possible to use it only after 4 hours (time difference between Kemerovo and Moscow).


There are three ways to connect "Internet L":

  1. On my own - via SMS, USSD request (using commands starting with an asterisk) and in your account.
  2. In the communication salon.
  3. Via contact center.

It must be remembered that Megafon and two other large Russian concerns operate throughout the country. In each region, the cost of Internet options and the traffic included in them is slightly different.

For example, in the Novosibirsk region the cost will be 700 rubles (50 GB), and in Moscow -890 rubles (36 GB). This is the amount of the monthly payment for the "Megafon" "Internet L" service.

How to connect yourself

To activate the option that the subscriber is going to use via modem, you need to send an SMS, since the device program does not support USSD requests. The message with the text "1" is sent but the number is 05009124.

Request viaan asterisk and a hash on a phone or tablet looks like this: 23641 and a call key.

The option "Internet L" "Megaphone" is deactivated using the command 23600 or SMS with the text "stop" to the number 05009124.

In the communication salon and contact center, specialists activate the option using the program.

At the same time, they have the opportunity to do all the necessary actions on the number, from replenishing the balance (in the salon) to activating the promised payment.

About money

In order to connect the Internet option, you need to immediately pay a subscription fee in advance for the month.

For example, the number is 700 rubles and the service is activated, for which 1.5 rubles is charged daily. The subscriber himself or with the help of specialists activated "Internet L" "MegaFon".

The description of the service makes it clear that the money will be debited all at once. In this case, nothing remains on the account, and at zero, the option will not work, unfortunately.

You can top up the balance by 1 ruble and use it, but the next day the subscriber will be charged for the service (1.5 rubles) and the balance will become negative. With financial blocking, it will no longer be possible to access the Internet.

The situation will be the same when using the option outside the home region.

Promised payment

If there is not enough funds on the balance, the subscriber can activate "Internet L" "Megafon" (description of connection methods is indicated above) with a special promiseda payment that is not related to a regular one.

Amount up to 700 rubles (in some regions this amount is more) is provided for connecting the Internet option only when typing a certain command or sending SMS. A simple promised payment or a credit of trust (you can go negative on the balance up to a certain amount) cannot be connected.

For example, a subscriber wants the "Internet L" service to be activated on "Megaphone", but there are 200 rubles on the balance. With a self-request for activation, a message is received that there are not enough funds, and the command that needs to be dialed to connect through the promised payment. The Internet is activated, 1 ruble remains on the balance. Payment must be paid within 7 days.

When connected through a specialist, activation occurs in exactly the same way, but with the help of a program installed on a computer in a communication salon or in a call center.

You need to remember about additional services with a subscription fee. If on the next day after connecting, any money was debited through the promised payment, you need to replenish the account for the amount of the promised payment plus funds to get out of the minus, as well as for the subsequent debiting of the subscriber for an additional service.

Here the point is that if there is a promised payment, any amount deposited on the balance goes towards its repayment. You can get out of this situation using a mobile transfer from a Megafon subscriber or by activating rubles for points. Only then will the balance become positive and it will be possible to use "Internet L" "Megaphone".

Description of payment features

Subscription fee for Internet services is debited every month and options are renewed automatically. Therefore, if the subscriber wants to use another Internet service after the previous one expires, he will need to turn off the old one, top up the balance for the required amount and activate the new option.

Otherwise, when depositing money into the account, the option that was connected earlier will be extended.

If this still happened, you must immediately call the contact center. At the same time, in no case should you go online, so that traffic does not start to be spent.

The specialist will cancel the failed connection only if the option has not yet been used. You can immediately clarify how to turn off "Internet L" "Megafon" if the subscriber forgot the command.


It often happens that the number of gigabytes provided for a month runs out quickly, and the next write-off is still far away. In this case, there are special additional services "Extend the speed" from Megafon. "Internet L" traffic or another option is supplemented with service traffic.

For example, there is "Extend speed 5 GB" costing from 230 rubles. Internet speed will be restored, but you need to remember that the additional service is directly related to the main one.

If there is not enough money to charge the monthly fee, the Internet option will turn off, and with it the "Extend speed" (traffic is justburns down).


Also, all subscribers need to know where the home region ends and the guest region begins.

Unfortunately, the state territorial division into subjects is not the same as that of telecom operators.

For example, the Siberian Federal District includes the Kemerovo and Novosibirsk regions (NSO), but for a Kemerovo subscriber Novosibirsk will be a guest city. Accordingly, when traveling to the NSO, a person will already be in roaming, which is equivalent to roaming in Russia.
