After Airtel, Vodafone blocks SMSs to Aircel network
TT Correspondent |  |  23 Nov 2012

There is no end to woes of Aircel customers with Vodafone too deciding to block SMSs to Aircel after Airtel imposed a blanket ban on its Network before Diwali.  The reason for this is the non-payment of the termination charger.

With this Aircel customers in Tamil Nadu, New Delhi and Karnataka will be affected by this move.

Aircel has informed its customers about this development through messages.  "SMS to Vodafone & Airtel numbers has been blocked by Vodafone & Airtel", it said. Company said that it is trying to resolve the issue.

The dispute pertains to termination charges which are paid by an operator from whose network calls or SMS originate to the one on whose network these communications end.

Due to these disputes the SMSes that the consumers are sending remain undelivered. There is also an apprehension whether consumer ultimately are paying for these SMSs. Aircel has stopped its SMS service to Airtel, though it maintains that consumers are not being forced for these SMSes.

The major disputes that have emerged so far are- Airtel v/s Aircel, Airtel v/s Reliance Communications and Vodafone v/s Tata Services.
