India to trial restoration of Internet access in Kashmir


Poorly researched

The story is factually wrong on multiple counts.

1. There is no state of J&K. There was, but it's been gone for a year. There's only a union territory of J&K, which is only a small part of the former state of J&K, encompassing less than half the Indian controlled area.

2. The internet restrictions existed primarily in the more violence prone Kashmir valley within this smaller UT, and not the southern Jammu area.

3. Post paid mobile services have been running all this while. Prepaid services were briefly curtailed, then restored.

4. 2G internet services were running since early 2020.

It's just 4G speeds that are being fully restored throughout the UT, not 'internet access'.
