To ensure better telecom services in the  remote Great Nicobar region, the state-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited has started construction of two BTS towers here. According to reports, BSNL launched the project at two places here, Shashtri Nagar and near RPRS colony later last month. The Echo of India, in January this year, reported that two senior BSNL officers toured Campbell Bay to take stock of  issues and problems relating to connectivity by the people of this remote location. After the tour, BSNL decided to install two BSNL towers. Once the towers are installed, connectivity in this part of the islands is expected to get a significant boost.
