Around eight million customers of Bharti airtel in Delhi had a hard time on Thursday evening, when their mobile phones services were disrupted due network malfunctioning. As a result Airtel subscribers across Delhi were not capable of making or receiving calls on their cellular phones.
Airtel spokesperson confirmed this saying, “An unforeseen technical outage affected services in some of our circuits. As a result, some of Airtel Delhi mobile subscribers have experienced connectivity issues. We deeply regret the inconvenience.”
She assured that problem has been rectified, though she did not disclose the exact nature of the problem.
During the outage, even customer care numbers where unreachable, causing much confusion. Personally, I thought my handset had conked off, as anyways it was giving me trouble with its touch screen not working properly.
It was only in the morning that I realized when I read in Twitter that everybody faced a similar problem.
