Residents of the Spiti valley have urged the state government to strengthen internet connectivity in this remote region of Lahaul & Spiti on priority. They said due to poor Internet connectivity in the region, students of the area were suffering a lot as they were unable to get access to online education in villages.

Tenzin Takpa, president of Spiti Civil Society, said, “The schools are providing online education to students across the state on the direction of the state government. Unfortunately, in the Spiti valley, many villages lack internet connectivity. Due to that, students’’ education is getting affected.”

He said, “Students from Lari village in the Spiti valley have to walk 4 km to reach Tabo to find an internet signal for online study, where mobile towers of the BSNL and Jio are installed to provide internet connectivity. Like Lari village, there are several villages in the Spiti valley, which lack internet connectivity.”
