Srinagar: Authorities on Monday reduced mobile internet speed in entire Kashmir Valley as a “precautionary measure”.
The internet services were suspended in Shooian and Pulwama districts of south Kashmir.
Official sources said that a communication to the cellular companies has been sent wherein it has directed them to reduce mobile internet (4G/3G) into 2G speed in all districts of Kashmir Valley with immediate effect.
As per the directions, the companies have been asked not to keep speed more than 128 kbps.
