Like Vodafone, Bharti Airtel has also started offering help to areas affected by cyclone Phailin. It too has deployed mobile vans in the severely affected villages in the Ganjam district to provide connectivity to the people through charging ports in these vans. Also, the company is providing mobile charging ports at its BTS locations across 22 towns in Ganjam, Puri, Khurda, Nayagarh, Dhenkanal, Angul and Jagatsinghpur.
