Aizawl: Lack of internet connectivity in the Pukzing Vengthar Village of Mizoram’s Mamit is hampering the studies of the students residing in the area.
Students have to travel more than three kilometers daily to get stable internet connection. The poor connectivity is also hampering the examinations and assignment submission by students.
Speaking to media, the village council president of Pukzing Vengthar said, “Due to lack of internet connectivity, students travel more than three km to get the signal. After crossing the Tlangnuam Village site we get the connectivity. Even during rain students have to travel miles to appear for their exam.”
Additionally, a local student said, “We travel more than three km to get the signal. It is really hard for us to appear for exams online as there is no internet connectivity in our Village. The assignment submission is also hampered due to this.”
