4G internet ban is extended till 25 Dec

The Jammu and Kashmir administration authorities has extended the ban on 4G internet high speed internet. They have said that only 2G service shall continue in Jammu and Kashmir till December 25, 2020.

As per an order issued today, only Udhampur and Ganderbal districts will have no high-speed restrictions, whereas the rest of 18 districts in J&K will have restrictions on high-speed internet services.

Home Department, Shaleen Kabra, said: “In view of credible inputs, and as a matter of abundant caution, the access to the internet had to be restricted on the day of poll in the areas going for polling. There has been a continuous attempt to radicalise the youth using social media which rely on high-speed internet.”

The Home Department’s order reads that high speed internet has to be barred “due to likelihood of misuse of the data services by the anti-national elements to disrupt the democratic process by creating a scare among the voters, carrying out attacks on security forces, targeting of contesting candidates and the workers.”

Initially Internet services were cut off in J & K last year on August 5, just hours before the Centre revoked Article 370 of the Constitution.

2G internet service was allowed to use on January 25.
