Provisional president and Senior leader of NC on Saturday asked government of India to restore 4G in J&K.
He said that government of India to at least think of students who are suffering.
Restore 4G in Jammu and Kashmir if for nothing else at least for the good of the student community . They are suffering, he said.
The UT of J&K has registered a new record of the longest ban on high-speed internet. It’s been more than 500 days since that 4G Internet was restricted in the UT. On 4th August 2019, a day before abrogation of the special status of J&K the Central Government snapped the high-speed Internet across J&K to avoid any incident of violence.
Earlier Israel Government restricted the high-speed Internet for 325 in Israel during the war between Israel and Palestine. Since then no country or state has ever witnessed such a ban on high-speed Internet. This year on January 25, 2G internet services were resumed in the UT and since then the people of J&K are enjoying 2G services at the price of 4G. On 16th August 2020 4G services were resumed on a trial basis in the Ganderbal and Udhampur district of J&K but in the remaining 18 districts, 4G is still banned.
The Corona Pandemic this year brought everything under the control of the Internet but the people of J&K are struggling with improper internet speed. But an achievement that J&K has achieved is that during lockdown the private telecom companies increased their pace of laying internet fibers and people of J&K are easily getting wifi connections at their home where they can enjoy high-speed internet.
