Murali, Business Head, Tamil Nadu Circle, Vodafone India, said, "Vodafone offers customers a choice of value-added plans catering to different usage patterns, with best in class customer service experience. Over the past year, we have significantly ramped up our network in Tamil Nadu, by adding a tower every hour. "

He said, "This has helped us be the preferred telecom network for one million Aircel customers and the numbers are growing. Customers can walk into over 600 Vodafone stores and Mini stores across Tamil Nadu which are open all seven days of the week to serve and assist them. Now stay confidently connected at pocket-friendly tariff plans, with Vodafone SuperNetTM."

The telco said that "10 lakh Aircel customers have ported to Vodafone so far. Vodafone has kept all retail touch points operational seven days a week to help consumers with their requirement."

To recall, State-run telecom operator BSNL said over one lakh customers of Aircel have registered under the mobile number portability facility to join the network.
