"Subscribers who downloaded such volume of data are not big in number -- there are about 50 people. As they admitted such volume of consumption was used mainly due to user interest: they purchased modems precisely for new technology trial-purposes, to try its rate capacity and downloaded heavy content on purpose," Natalia Spitsyna, Commercial Director of Stolichny Branch of MegaFon, noted.
