Mumbai Mirror says it will take 8 - 10 days for Airtel to restore services!

So guys with Airtel connection, get yourself a Hutch or some other local SIM card till then.

I Texted somebody nealry 45 mins ago, still not received the delivery report and i spoke to the person 5 mins back. Network very congested. Seriously did not expect this kind of response from Airtel.
Planning to switch to Voda now.

what kind of office does Airtel have in Peninsula complex ? I mean the amount of services that are/were down is massive. Yesterday in pune, airtel network was botched up. No calls getting through and sms taking too long to deliver. Even blackberry service was down.
Adding to that, corporate services ( call centre numbers et al ) were gone down too. I tried calling YouTelecom call center and and still cant get through.

Anyone guessing how much of setback have Airtel suffered from yesterday's events ?

PS: Just received a message from youtelecom about their call center no. being nonfunctional due to the problem with airtel network in mumbai.

Read today in the newspaper that whatever connectivity Airtel got working on the day of the fire was because Vodafone helped them out & let them use the free part of their network.

It also said that some subscribers received messages saying "Welcome to Vodafone Mumbai".

Default Airtel on Mobile Genset!

Update from the site (I work in the same complex)

Airtel building facilities still run on gensets. I am not sure if normal power has been restored. The genset vans are still around (from late friday evening) - I believe this will take some more time. Will let you guys know when the gensets leave
