Indian telecom network operator Bharti Airtel has made additional investment in its networks in Kumbakonam and its adjacent towns ahead of Mahamaham festival in Tamil Nadu.
Airtel, India’s number one 4G operator based on its network coverage, aims to offer better customer experience to about 50 lakh people who attend Mahamaham festival that happens every 12 years.
