Srinagar, January 18: Broadband internet and 2G mobile internet services will soon be restored in parts of Jammu and Kashmir, J&K Principal Secretary Rohit Kansal said while addressing media on Saturday.

The 2G mobile internet services will be restored for accessing only whitelisted sites to be restored in all ten districts of Jammu and two districts of Kashmir- Kupwara and Bandipora, the government order said.

However, the ban on social media will continue in these districts. Broadband internet is available across banks in J&K for the meantime.

Further, voice calling and SMS services will be restored for all pre-paid connections across the Union Territory, the order said.
