Russia's Beeline, Yandex launch a joint tariff plan

Veon Group has announced that its Russian operator Beeline is set to partner with Yandex.Plus for the launch of their first joint tariff plan.

According to a press release from the global provider of connectivity and digital services, the plan, branded "People closest to you with Yandex.Plus", is a single-payment tariff that includes a bundle of minutes, internet, and unlimited messages, as well as giving access to the video-streaming service Kinopoisk, Yandex Music and cashback points in Yandex services.

The joint tariff plan is built on Beeline's flagship "People closest to you 2" consumer offering that includes unlimited on-net calls, hundreds of minutes per month for voice calls to any number, unlimited access to messengers, and dozens of gigabytes for general internet use, it said.

In the "People closest to you with Yandex.Plus" tariff, users of the Yandex services will not consume the main traffic package, allowing users to watch films and TV series, and listen to music and podcasts without any limitations, the release added.

Svetlana Kirsanova, Executive Vice President of Beeline, said: "People closest to you with Yandex Plus" is a great opportunity to offer our clients a wide range of convenient products and services while making communication as beneficial as possible. The tariff with Yandex Plus is now a pilot for us, but we expect to be able to introduce more joint projects as early as next year."

Andrei Gevak, Head of Yandex Plus, said: "Our joint tariff with Beeline is a reflection of modern life, which is already unimaginable without mobile Internet and the services included in Plus. The partnership with Beeline is very important to us, and we hope that Beeline subscribers will enjoy being on Plus."
