We are getting reports of some BlackBerry users in Mumbai on Airtel are facing a service outage. At the moment, only some users are facing network outage but it reminds us of Airtel’s service outage from last year as a result of fire in their premises in Mumbai. Airtel has sent out a text message to its BlackBerry subscribers informing them of possible network outage. RIM India has denied any service outage from their end. In the meanwhile, if you are an Airtel user and are facing an outage, do ping us and let us know in comments below.
UPDATE: We have learnt this is an Airtel issue with some users facing complete blackout of services including voice and data. This is an Airtel issue. We have reached out to Airtel for an update.
