Statement on long overdue 4G mobile internet restoration in Jammu & Kashmir after 550 days #KeepItOn

Yesterday i.e. 05 February 2021, the Jammu & Kashmir Government announced that it would be restoring 4G mobile internet services in all districts of Jammu & Kashmir. Till then, 4G mobile internet connectivity was only available in 2 out of 20 districts of Jammu & Kashmir, which were Ganderbal and Udhampur. The move follows international condemnation of the internet shutdowns being imposed near the borders of Delhi and in Haryana to suppress farmers' protests but it is also grounded in the research, reporting, public advocacy and strategic litigation carried on by local groups for the last one and a half years.
