Students urge authorities to restore high-speed Internet in Shopian

The students from south Kashmir’s Shopian district preparing for various examinations on Sunday urged the authorities to restore high-speed Internet as their studies were being affected by the continuous blockade.

Scores of students preparing for various examinations emailed to media and expressed their dismay over the suspension of the high-speed Internet in the district.

“We the students of Shopian want to bring it in your notice that 3g/4g has been barred in Shopian from last twenty days. Only low-speed 2G Internet is working in our district, which is not sufficient to download a video related to education or learning purpose.

Now we request authorities to restore the high-speed Internet so that we could focus on our studies for upcoming exams,” read a email.

The high-speed Internet has been blocked in wake of ongoing civic polls to ‘stop spreading of rumours.’
