Akola, July 13: Union minister Sanjay Dhotre Saturday said the issue of call drops faced by mobile subscribers has been largely resolved in urban areas.

He was speaking during a meeting of telecom companies in Akola city held in the district head office of the BSNL.

But the issue could still be faced in some remote areas," the Minister of State for Communications, Electronics & Information Technology said.

He advised the companies to set up more towers to improve their quality of service and to provide better network to customers.
