Mobile internet services resumed in Assam on Friday, 10 days after it was snapped in the wake of violent protests over the new citizenship law.

A senior official of private telecom operator, Airtel, said the ban was lifted from 9 am on Friday. “As we did not receive any fresh order to continue with the blackout, we have lifted the ban from 9 am,” he said.

The state government had said that mobile internet services in the state would be restored from Friday, though the Gauhati High Court had ordered restoration of the service by 5 pm on Thursday.

Broadband services have already resumed in the state.
