MTS Brand

MTS launched its current brand in 2006, building on the reputation as the leader and highest quality operator in the region. The brand was developed to attract customers in a variety of cultural, socio-geographic and income segments with the consistent message of quality and leadership.

The strength of the brand has been internationally recognized for seven years, starting from 2008, when MTS became the first and only Russian company to enter BRANDZ™ Top 100 Most Powerful Brands, a ranking published by the Financial Times and Millward Brown, a leading global market research and consulting firm.

In December 2008, MTS extended its brand outside the CIS borders. MTS and Shyam Telelink Limited, JSFC Sistema's telecommunications subsidiary in India, announced the agreement to allow Shyam Telelink to use MTS brand in India. The decision to introduce the brand to India is reflective of the brand’s success in the Company’s markets of operation since its launch in May 2006.
