Shimla: Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) connected Himachal Pradesh’s remote Miyar Valley in Lahaul & Spiti with the mobile phone network on Tuesday.
‘The mobile services began with the installation of a tower at Tinget village,’ BSNL sub divisional officer K.S. Verma in Keylong was quoted in the media. He said that the mobile phone service would benefit over 1,000 people settled in six villages across the valley. The area is already connected with BSNL’s landline service.
Verma said now only the Tindi Valley in the district was left without the mobile network. BSNL has more than 14 lakh mobile subscribers in the state.
The picturesque Miyar Valley is a preferred destination for adventure tourists.
