MegaFon was the first all-Russian mobile network operator to use the dual band GSM-900/1800 cellular network. The company was formed after renaming and reorganizing North-West GSM and consolidating under one name with Sonyc Duo (Moscow), Mobicom-KAvkaz, Mobocom Novosibirsk, Mobikom-Khabarovsk, Mobocom-Kirov and several other companies in May 2002.
MegaFon is the first operator in Russia that has successfully tested an experimental network of the 4G, LTE protocol. By fall 2012, 4G networks have been rolled out in the regions accounting for more than 20% of the population - Moscow, Moscow Region, Novosibirsk, Samara, Vladivostok, Ufa, Krasnodar Territory, Sochi, Saint-Petersburg, Kazan, Kostroma. MegaFon seeks to provide 4G connection to 100,000 subscribers in Russia. 
The development of 3G and 4G networks is a priority for the company in the upcoming years. 
The company floated 15 percent of its stock during the IPO on November 28, 2012 at the Moscow Stock Exchange and the London Stock Exchange. The mobile operator sold its shares for 20 dollars, raising some $1.7 billion.
Estimated at $11.7 billion, the company became the last of the three biggest operators to go public.
