IN · · Leave a Comment
Jammu & Kashmir, 05 February, 2013: Bharti Airtel, a leading global telecommunications company with operations in 20 countries across Asia and Africa now provides seamless voice & data connectivity to its customers in Kargil, reinforcing Airtel’s pan India coverage strength.

While the government has undertaken various measures to improve tourist infrastructure in the region, lack of accessibility and communication during winters, keeps Kargil isolated from other parts of the country. Airtel through its network presence across all 22 districts of J&K will now allow the residents/tourists connected with their friends & family across India.

Given the extreme weather conditions and rough terrains, the connectivity has been extended to the region through VSAT links and specially designed telecom infrastructure which can be adjusted as per the need in case of any unprecedented weather condition. With connectivity in Kargil, Airtel has covered the farthest destination on the network coverage map of J&K.

Jagbir Singh – Director, Network Services Group, Bharti Airtel said, “At Airtel, it is our constant endeavour to provide superior user experience to our customers by seamlessly connecting them wherever they go. District Kargil is known for its inclement weather conditions and remains cut off from the rest of the country for more than 6 months, especially during winters. The teams have worked very hard towards this project and we are pleased to have the network deployment that will allow the natives and tourists to stay connected to their near and dear ones throughout the year. With this, Airtel becomes the only private operator to have network footprints in the border district of J&K.”
