The message further states that users may face slow internet speeds due to this. But, the company hasn't promised any specific fix date for this issue. We are expecting that it will take around a week or so to completely get this problem fixed.

According to MediaNama, ACT Broadband users will also face slow internet speed issues for the next few days and the Chennai's local broadband network- YOU Broadband also has sent out official messages saying the same.

Also, when we reached out to Airtel's customer care executive, he stated that the issue would be fixed within 24 hours, but we highly doubt the same that as several places of Chennai are still affected by the cyclone.

We will update you once we receive any information from the officials of Airtel or another telecom network on when the issue will get fixed. Till then, stay tuned to GizBot.
