SIMKOT, Feb 11: Limi, a settlement in the northern highland of Namkha Rural Municipality, has been without modern communication services for the last two weeks.
The World Link Communication facilities at Ward Number 6 of the rural municipality is dysfunctional resulting in the disruption in service, it is said.
The Internet service provided by World Link Communication has been disrupted since some two weeks ago, depriving the locals of communication services, said Ward Chairman Paljor Tamang. He said that all services provided by the Ward Office have been affected due to the disruption in the services.
Tamang said the Internet might be out of service due to the heavy snowfall in Namkha last Thursday and Friday. Communication through email, Viber, WhatsApp and Wechat is also out of service.
Ward Chairman Tamang said it might take a few more days to restore the internet service as it will take time for the technical team to arrive here from Simkot, the district headquarters. Limi is a remote area in the district and the trail to the settlement is blocked by snow in high passes.
