Telecom sites are now fully operational in Afghanistan
According to a news report, the Afghanistan Telecom Regulatory Authority (ATRA) has said that telecommunications services that saw disruptions during the Taliban takeover have now been restored to normal levels. According to the news report, during the Taliban takeover in August 2021, some conquering forces went on rampage by burning cell sites and other critical infrastructure. The communication from ATRA that the damages have been restored brings some hope that internet services will be stable. The report notes that some private telecommunication service providers in the country, including MTN, considered reevaluating their business in August due to attacks on telecom infrastructure.
