We travelled the Pamir Highway and had two SIM cards, one from T-Cell and one from Megafon. Here's a comparison (the speed indicates the internet quality; if there was service calls and SMS were possible).

"Very slow" means it was nearly unusable, only emails and text messages would work most of the time. Slow means usable, but slow. 3G is HSDPA / UMTS, 2G is EDGE / GPRS.

City        Megaphon            TCell
Dushanbe: 3G, fast 3G, fast
Tavildara: 2G, slow 2G, slow
Krgovad: 2G, slow no service
Chorugh: 3G, fast 3G, fast
Ishkashim: 2G, very slow 2G, very slow
Yamg: 2G, no data 2G, very slow
Langar: no service 2G, very slow
Murghab: 3G, slow ?
Karakul: 2G, very slow no service


Especially in Wakhan Valley, T-Cell seems to be the better choice. For Eastern Pamir, Megafon may be better.
