Vodafone installs Insta Network to aid Cyclone Phailin relief work

Vodafone India has initiated several measures to support the relief and rehabilitation work being carried out by the Central and State Governments in regions of Odisha ravaged by Cyclone Phailin. The cyclone prompted India’s biggest evacuation in 23 years with more than 900,000 people moved up from the coastline in Odisha to safer places.

With Odisha bearing the brunt of Phailin and its impact in disrupting millions of lives, Vodafone has taken steps to improve connectivity, one of the key factors to ensure normalcy in times like this.

Vodafone has installed an ‘Insta Network’ in Chhatrapur in Ganjam district, where the sites were down since the afternoon of October 12, 2013.

Further, as part of its disaster relief efforts, Vodafone has also installed multi-plug sockets at the sites of all affected areas so that people can charge their mobile phones. The telecom operator has also arranged for coverage supported by five mobile vans, each with a minimum of 50 charging sockets. These vans will travel to the cyclone and flood affected areas, enabling citizens to charge their mobile phones and keep in touch with their near and dear ones.

Vodafone has made ‘Chota’ credit service available to all its customers, who can take credit by dialing *130 # and transfer balance to their friends and relatives.
