Nepal govt lifts restrictions on mobile phones
Nepal's royal government on Thursday lifted the remaining restrictions on mobile phones, weeks after shutting down services to try to prevent dissidents from organising anti-government protests, reports The Times of India.
"The decision of Nepal Telecom Ltd., the state-owned monopoly in cellular phone services, to resume prepaid mobile phone services today came after a court sought an explanation from the government for restricting the use of mobile phones."
This is not the first time this government has cut off communications. Related articles:
