Vodafone Idea has made operational over 2,600 sites affected by cyclone Fani in 10 districts of Odisha.
Vodafone Idea has revived nearly 90% of its network in 10 affected districts of Odisha thereby providing mobile connectivity to people in these cyclone hit areas.
The company has managed to simultaneously restore 85% of broadband connectivity enabling its 3G and 4G users to use data services. Having quickly restored high levels of connectivity across 2G, 3G and 4G networks, Vodafone Idea is also enabling users of other operators to latch onto its network through ICR voice during this critical period.
As the first operator to enable connectivity in parts of Puri town, Vodafone Idea team is continuing to work closely with all stakeholders to expedite network restoration in Puri which has witnessed severe impact. It has already completed connecting 9 blocks in the district. Stocked fuel and DG sets are being used to run the sites at a time when power supply is unavailable.
