‘4G Mubarak’, says NC leader Omar Abdullah as high-speed internet services resume in J&K
“Better late than never,” former Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah said, reacting to the restoration of 4G mobile internet services in the Union Territory. A number of other political leaders from J&K also hailed the move, including Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party (JKAP) chief Altaf Bukhari.
Vice -president of the National Conference (NC), Omar Abdullah said in a tweet, “4G Mubarak! For the first time since Aug 2019 all of J&K will have 4G mobile data. Better late than never.”
More than 18 months after 4G mobile internet services were snapped in the UT, the Jammu and Kashmir administration announced on Friday that high-speed mobile internet will be restored across J&K. These services were already active in the districts of Ganderbal and Udhampur.
