New Delhi: America has welcomed the decision to restore 4G internet in Jammu and Kashmir. In its statement, America said that we welcome the resumption of 4G mobile internet in India’s Jammu and Kashmir. This is an important step for the local people. We are hopeful that political and economic progress will continue to restore normalcy in Jammu and Kashmir.
Please tell that on 5 February, the Jammu and Kashmir administration had announced the reinstatement of 4G service in the entire Jammu and Kashmir. After about 18 months 4G service was restored in the state. The service has been reinstated 18 months after the Center abolished the special status of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir in August 2019 and divided it into two union territories.
Significantly, the government stopped internet service on 5 August 2019, when most of the provisions of Article 370 were repealed and divided into two union territories, Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
