On 15 August, like every other year, Jammu and Kashmir government snapped mobile internet services on all platforms, while voice calling wasn’t barred this time on the eve of Independence Day.

Unnamed officials said in the security review meeting held on August 13 and 14 respectively, it was decided that 2G mobile internet services will be suspended across Kashmir but voice calls will remain functional.

“Mobile internet services on all platforms remained suspended for five hours. Mobile internet was snapped at 7 am in the morning and restored at 12 noon,” unnamed officials told a local news agency, Kashmir News Observer (KNO).

“Internet was snapped as a precautionary measure and restored as well,” the official said.

However, the high-speed internet, which was suspended in the last August, remains out of bounds. (Inputs from KNO)
