Telecom service provider Aircel has said its users will have connectivity issues on Thursday.

K. Sankara Narayanan, Head – SBU (South), Aircel, said a network disruption was expected again tomorrow. “Customers are advised to make alternative arrangements to stay connected.”

Aircel customers have been facing connectivity issues for the last one week and many have ported out from the network.

For Aircel, Tamil Nadu is a very crucial market and the firm had a customer base of 1.5 crore until last week. Aircel officials said that the company still has over one crore subscribers in the State. “Not everyone has ported out,” a senior official said.

According to TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) annual report 2015-16, Aircel has a subscriber base of over 8.709 crore in India.
