Srinagar: As Government earlier informed the top court, 4G internet services were restored in two districts of Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday night on a trial basis more than a year after it was suspended.
The Jammu and Kashmir administration said that the services will continue till September 8 in Ganderbal and Udhampur districts- one each in Kashmir and Jammu divisions.
“The high-speed mobile data services in the districts of Ganderbal (Kashmir) and Udhampur (Jammu division) shall be restored forthwith, on trial basis, while in rest of the districts, the internet speed shall continue to be restricted to 2G only,” an order issued by the Jammu and Kashmir Home Department read.
The order said that high-speed internet will be provided to post-paid subscribers while pre-paid customers would be able to enjoy the benefit of the services only after completing the verification process.
The Internet services were suspended hours before the Centre scrapped its special status on August 5, 2019.
