India to ‘restore’ internet in occupied Kashmir after five months

Internet services are likely to be partly restored in Indian occupied Kashmir from Saturday, ending a five-and-a half-month government-imposed blackout in the disputed valley. According to the local authorities, social media will stay offline in the said region. Internet access will be restored later Saturday but only to 301 government-approved websites that include international news publications and platforms such as Netflix and Amazon.

Mobile phone data access will also be restored, but limited to slower second-generation (2G) connections.
