4G mobile internet services being restored in entire J&K, official says

The Jammu and Kashmir administration on Friday announced the restoration of high-speed mobile internet services in the entire union territory, 18 months after they were snapped in the erstwhile state following the Centre's abrogation of its special constitutional status.

Rohit Kansal, the spokesperson of the Jammu and Kashmir administration, tweeted Friday evening, "4G mobile internet services are being restored in the entire Jammu and Kashmir.

The 4G mobile internet service was snapped across Jammu and Kashmir in August 2019 following revocation of special status and bifurcation of the erstwhile state into two union territories. While the service was restored in two districts, Udhampur in Jammu and Ganderbal in Kashmir, after over a year, it remained suspended in the rest of the 18 districts.

Meanwhile, National Conference (NC) vice-president Omar Abdullah welcomed the move to restore high-speed 4G mobile internet services in Jammu and Kashmir, saying it was better late than never.

"4G Mubarak! For the first time since Aug 2019 all of J&K will have 4G mobile data. Better late than never," Omar wrote on Twitter.

Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party (JKAP) chief Altaf Bukhari also welcomed the move, terming it as a positive development. Bukhari expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for restoring the high-speed mobile internet services in the 18 districts of the UT.

"Terming it as a positive development for students and the youth of J-K, Bukhari thanked the PM for fulfilling this demand of people of UT," a KJAP spokesperson said.
