Airtel has provided unlimited calling and data services to help residents affected by torrential rains and floods in Assam and other regions of Northeast India to communicate.

Customers in the affected areas of Dima Hasao, Karbi Anglong, North Cachar Hills, Cachar, Tamenglong, Southwest Khasi hills (Cherrapunji), East Jaintia Hills, and West Jaintia Hills will receive unlimited calls and 2GB data for 5 days to ensure that they can stay connected with their “near and dear ones” and stay online.

In a statement, the corporation said it has set up war rooms to monitor its networks and has stocked up on spare parts in case of a breakdown.

During the current flood scenario, the business has enhanced battery backup capacity for places prone to power outages.

The corporation’s statement read, “Provisions have also been made for quick deployment of temporary sites (cell on wheels) in case of damage to existing sites.”

With over 14.6 million users in Assam and Northeast India, Airtel has developed special infra teams to keep its mobile network up and operating during the approaching flood and rainy season.
