High speed internet, broadband remain suspended

High speed internet, broadband remain suspended

Srinagar, Feb 15 (UNI) High speed internet and broadband service remained suspended in the Kashmir valley since August 5, when the Centre scrapped Article 370 and bifurcated the state into two Union Territories (UTs).

Foreign delegates, after their visit to Srinagar recently, have also recommended to restore internet service in the valley.

People alleged that 2G internet hardly makes any difference as they are unable to even check their mails due to very low speed. The users said no site, including 300 whitelisted sites, could be opened as the government. However, the social media sites remained blocked.



People, particularly media persons, doctors, students and other professionals continued to suffer as broadband and high speed mobile internet service remained suspended since August 5, when all communication networks were snapped in Jammu and Kashmir and Laddakh.

Media persons and other professionals and students alleged that restoration of 2G mobile service has hardly helped them as they cannot have access to any site despite repeated attempts.

Bhopal, Feb 19 (UNI) Law-enforcement authorities of the future will be equipped with technology instead of weapons, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath averred on Wednesday while emphasising that the force shall have to familiarise itself with the latest techs and learn to adopt the same.

I hope that in future the Madhya Pradesh Police shall become so skilful vis-a-vis utilising emerging applied science that it would be an ideal for other states. Economic growth also brings with it monetary transgressions. Those in khaki need to recognise the nature and tendency of such offences. Harmony among limbs of governance is imperative for quality results,” he was officially quoted as saying while addressing the Indian Police Service Officers’ Conclave 2020 at the imposing Minto Hall here.
