Mobile services in Indian-administered Kashmir have been restored 72 days after they were suspended. The Indian government suspended mobile phone connections, landlines and internet in the region before stripping it of its partial autonomy on 5 August. An estimated four million mobiles have once again become operational, but prepaid connections have not yet been restored. Internet services, however, continue to be suspended in the region.
