Following Facebook in Russia
, free access to 0.vkontakte.ru appears.
The telecommunications operator MTS and the social network VKontakte have announced the free access to the mobile portal 0.vkontakte.ru for their users since September 1, which allows them to communicate with their friends on the social network VKontakte for free.
Portal 0.vkontakte.ru is optimized for fast loading of pages through a mobile connection - this is a faster and easier version of the mobile site m.vkontakte.ru.
Portal 0.vkontakte.ru allows you to use all the features of the mobile version, but it does not display graphics, photo and video files, so that the speed of access to the resource increases significantly.
Access to the content posted on the user's pages can be obtained by clicking on a special link, while the user is notified that he leaves 0.vkontakte.ru and, accordingly, a free charging zone. When viewing content and following links to other resources, data transfer is charged according to the subscriber’s tariff.
To use the service, the subscriber needs to dial one of the addresses in the browser line of his phone: 0.vkontakte.ru or 0.vk.com.
Free access to 0.vkontakte.ru is possible only in the “home” region of the subscriber and in intranet roaming. Free access is not supported for Opera Mini and similar browsers that use traffic compression, as well as for subscribers who have activated the static IP address service. At the same time, it is possible to use the standard version of VKontakte for mobile devices on the website m.vkontakte.ru with payment for traffic in accordance with the terms of the subscriber tariff.UPD: Free promotional offer is available to MTS subscribers until October 1, 2010
