Services were affected from 5 August 2019
Internet service was stopped in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir after the removal of Article 370 from August 5, 2019, about two years ago. The Union Territory (UT) administration later started high-speed internet services in some districts over postpaid SIM services. After this, before the UT District Polls in November, the administration had decided to introduce high-speed internet data in Ganderbal and Udhampur districts. In the remaining districts, only 2G data was approved because on the basis of inputs from security agencies, it was feared that some terrorists might try to disturb peace in UT.
