High-speed 4G mobile internet services were restored in the entire Kashmir and Jammu regions, according to an official order on Friday.
“4G mobile internet services being restored in entire J&K,” said Rohit Kansal, J&K Principal Secretary (Power & Information).
In a previous order, the Jammu and Kashmir administration had extended the ban on high-speed mobile data services across the Union Territory, except Ganderbal and Udhampur, till February 6.
Mobile internet services were suspended in Jammu in August last year, in view of security concerns in the wake of the abrogation of Article 370 that granted special status to the erstwhile State.
Six months later in January 2020, the low-speed or 2G internet service on mobile phones was restored. On January 9, the ban on high speed mobile internet was extended till January 22.On August 16, 2020, high-speed mobile data services were restored on a trial basis in Ganderbal and Udhampur for post-paid sim card cardholders.
