Following the exposure of pricing and functions three days ago, today, telecom CEO Pavel durov officially announced that telecom premium will be launched this month。 Durov said that the existing free functions and services will continue to be free, but users who buy Premium can get additional functions, faster transmission speed and more resources.
In the statement, durov said that the company has experimented with privacy focused advertising on several public one to many channels, and these experiments have been more successful than expected. But he finally thought that it would be better for telegraph to be funded mainly by its users through the advanced subscription model.
Premium subscriptions will make telegram a more dynamic company because it will have a source of revenue to help it continue its operations. So far, things have looked good for those who want to stay on the free package. It is hoped that telegraph will not break its promise to keep the existing functions free in the future.
The list of additional value-added services that the previously exposed telegraph premium users will get if they pay $4.99 per month:
It supports up to 1000 channels, 20 chat folders, 10 pushpins, 4 accounts (in one application), 200 pushpins in folders, 20 public links to channels and groups, 10 favorite stickers, and 400 gifs.
