Amidst the protests, the government of Pakistan suspended mobile data services and after a gap of 16 days, they were fully restored across the region. In a letter addressed to the Secretary of the Minis­try of Interior, the Gilgit-Baltistan Home and Prisons department officially announced its decision to restore 4G cellular inte­r­net services in the region.

After the government in GB gave a go-ahead in regard to the security conditions, the national telecom regulator, Pakistan Tele­com­munication Authority (PTA) restored the mobile cellular internet services in the region.

Furthermore, the press release stated that as the law and order situation has improved. Therefore, the GB government has taken steps to immediately rest­ore the internet services in order to end difficulties faced by students, companies, and freelancers who can’t survive without the internet.
