The Jammu & Kashmir administration has issued an order for the extension of the 2G mobile data service in the union territory till February 15, 2020.

Further, it has increased the whitelisted sites available for mobile data users to 481.

Earlier on January 25, 2020, 2G internet facility on mobile phones was restored for a week in the union territory after remaining suspended since August 5, 2019 when the centre announced nullification of Article 370 of the Constitution applicable to the erstwhile state and also bifurcated it into union territories, Ladakh, and Jammu & Kashmir.
