The central government has agreed to restore 4G Internet in one district each in Jammu and Kashmir division on a trial basis, more than a year after high-speed internet services were suspended on August 5 last year.
Attorney General KK Venugopal informed the Supreme Court on Tuesday that the special committee formed to review the situation has decided to provide access to high-speed internet in limited and specific areas from August 16. The government will review the situation after two months, he said.
The Supreme court was hearing a petition filed by Foundation for Media Professionals, a non-government organization, in June seeking the initiation of contempt proceedings against the Centre and J-K administration for the failure to comply with the top court’s May 11 directions to review restrictions on mobile internet speed in the union territory.
