Mobile service provider Airtel was back to rub the national conscious after having their internet services disrupted for long hours on Tuesday May 10, 2017 leaving most of its loyal clients inconvenienced.

Clients were fed with a memo via text that announced that internet services had been disrupted with a social media protest that comically labelled the mobile service provider as 'Airfail' going a little viral.

Maintenance works continued late into the night with little or no success.
