Several small and large villages in Ladakh have raised the demand of 4G internet connectivity along with stable power supply that has become a major issue for the people living in these areas.
Konchok Stanzin, councilor of Chushul Constituency said that many villages along Line of Actual Control (LAC) do not have 4G internet access. Stanzin has also requested many mobile network companies to install mobile towers in border areas. “It’s my humble request to install Mobile networks in the border area of Chushul Constituency of Ladakh. Chushul, Merak, Khakted, Maan, Spangmik, Lukung, Yurgo, Phobrang, Barma, Kherapullu, Sato and Chibra are still deprived of 4G facilities” he said.
On the other hand many people have also complained about erratic power supply being faced in Tia and Tingmosgang village since two months.
A resident of the village said that power supply of only 4-5 hours was being received. Residents also rue that even as villagers are continuously begging for 4G network from the administration which can help the vast population of the Tia and Tingmosgang, their pleas are not being acknowledged.
