(Nearly) full tickless operation in 3.10
We have like 80% of coverage for the whole country, with many competing independent cell networks. I can literally travel everywhere and get a good phone signal (even in Chernobyl).

3G did develop practically in the last 3-4 years and it was incredibly expensive in the beginning, now you can get postpaid plans with unlimited traffic for about $15-$20/month. Lots of people switched off from ADSL to the mobile telcos in the rural areas as it costs almost the same (and the national ADSL provider is notorious for its poor support).
Yet as the nice new Android smartphones and the iphones are quite expensive here, GSM is here to stay for at least a couple of years.
