We wrote to the PMO & DoT on the Access to Internet issue which is persisting in the Andaman & Nicobar Islands #DigitalAndamans #4GforAll

On June 25, 2020, in an interview given by the CGM of BSNL, Andaman, it was disclosed that the migration to bandwidth from the CANI Project will start from July 1, 2020 in and around Port Blair and will take around 15 days to be completed. He said that 4G speeds will not be available due to non-availability of spectrum. Further, he said that high speed internet services in other parts of the islands are likely to begin from September, 2020 as per BSNL targets but may be further delayed due the pandemic. Most importantly, he revealed that there will be no change in the exorbitant tariffs which are currently being charged.
