Yota's main point is fully unlimited data traffic but with some restrictions such as blocked P2P networks or tethering. Although the network is the same, you may not have access to LTE in some regions where Yota SIM cards are not sold, unlike MegaFon subscribers who would (this is due to licence restrictions).

This has changed in 2018 when first MVNOs started mostly on the Tele2 network. The most accessible are given out by banks: '''Tinkoff Mobile '''and '''SberMobile,''' but there are others more, that are harder to get hold of.
