According to Tele2, since June 20, 2017, voice traffic in instant messengers has grown 10 times. Although it is not clear that the company has counted for voice traffic (only calls or also voice messages), the increase, in any case, is quite significant. Some people make up to 50% of all calls via instant messengers. Most people communicate in WhatsApp and Viber. “MegaFon” noted that its subscribers also began to use calls to services for communication more often, though only by 20%.
