Srinagar: Following the seven-month-long suspension, the government-run cellular company, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) on Thursday restored the broadband internet services in the Valley.
The broadband internet services have been restored a day after the government lifted the ban on social media applications here after seven-months. However, the high speed mobile data services as per the government will remain barred till March 17.
The broadband services were suspended in the intervening night of –August 04-05 last year in wake of the trashing of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status (Article 370) and also the bifurcation of the erstwhile State into two Union Territories—J&K and Ladakh.
PRO BSNL, Masood Bala said that the broadband internet service has been restored across the Valley with authorities deciding not to charge consumers for the suspended period. “The charges for the suspension period to the consumers have been waived off and the services have been restored,” he said.
