Internet Not Easy in Mizoram as Students Take To The Hilltop

No Connectivity

 

Trekking sounds like a fun activity to the youngsters but not in Mizoram. It is an everyday hustle for them. In a remote village in Mizoram, the students have to climb to the the top of a hill to catch the signals for their studies. The village is surrounded by hills and hence, there is very less connectivity in the village.

In an era, where Internet has become as significant as basic needs, it is hard to imagine a village that is still making with 2G internet. Also, at the time of pandemic, internet is a powerful source of information.

 

Amid lockdown, when many operations shifted to online mode, the management should take the village into consideration and ensure better connectivity.
