We’ve got LTE broadband here mainly for rural areas, apparently it’s very poor, capped and whilst advertised at 70meg most are struggling to get 1meg

Anytime Megafon want to improve the internet here - only 2km from civilisation - but crap - welcome !

Same applies to Yota - their subsidiary, - who I recommend to visitors - unlimited internet - Beeline and MTS

BTW: Megafon belongs mainly to The Oligarch Alisher Burkhanovich Usmanov  - who wants to take over Arsenal football club in London  - currently a 'minority' shareholder

Right, Sorted the Yota issue.. Now have a super signal

If in Russia and you need IT kit TVs etc., FAST and at a good price try Ulmart.ru

I ordered at 8pm on the 31st July and the stuff came to Adler - the last city before Georgia / 'Abkhazia' - within 36 hours - from Moscow ... the likes of DNS / MVideo wanted far more and the wait time for 5 days

I fitted 4G router and the Yota sim card into a TP-Link AC-750 MR-200 and added two EXTERNAL antennae and BANG ... very few lost packets and 10MBs/ sec down and same up - their is a hill blocking the signal and a pocket based WiFi router was getting 0.5 up / down - when it COULD connect ...

Took an hour to setup - easy as the roof is metal and the antennae are mag mounted... 

The 21C came to the Dacha :)
