On 5th of august 2019 when the article 370 was revoked the valley witnessed a sudden communication black out in which telephone and internet was suspended for a long period of time. However, after sometime 2G data was restored in the valley but the internet connectivity was extremely poor. College students living in the valley were already suffering due to the poor internet connectivity and then the pandemic added insult to the injury. Due to the pandemic students were forced to attend online classes in the same situation of poor internet connectivity. Recently 4G data has been restored in two districts of Kashmir however it is still on trial basis.
