India’s largest mobile operator Bharti Airtel extended its mobile coverage to the toughest terrains of Kargil (Jammu and Kashmir). The superior network from Airtel will provide seamless voice and data connectivity in this region. With the presence in Kargil, Airtel now has network coverage in all 22 districts of Jammu and Kashmir.
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. Given the exteme weather and rough terrains the connectivity to Kargil is made throught VSAT links, and specially designed infrastructure which can tolerate the rough weather, and can be adjusted in case of any unprecedented weather condition.
The network deployment at Kargil 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.
