Telecom operator Aircel has opened up its network to users of all telecom operators in Jammu and Kashmir, for a period of two days. The company is also setting up mobile charging units and calling boots to allow stranded flood victims make calls to their homes/friends and families, and calls for all its postpaid and prepaid customers from Jammu & Kashmir are free for the next two days: 10th and 11th of September 2014. The company says it is working together with the local administration and the Army to restore 2G network in the city and to ensure no outages reoccur on their 3G network, which is presently up and running in Srinagar. Apart from this, the company is also stocking up relief material like medicines, water, non-perishable food items at their offices.
