Ghariyan, 21 April 2015:
The mobile network in Gharyan was up and running again on Saturday after a four-day . . .[restrict]interruption, but residents have said that they are still not able to connect 100 percent of the time.
The network went down on Tuesday after clashes in and around Aziziya damaged the line connecting Gharyan to all the other towns in the Jebel Nafusa.
Residents say that the town is still reeling from the cut, which forced banks, the passport office, and other vital institutions to close down because they were unable to conduct business.
According to the connections director for the Jebel Nafusa Area, Nuri Al-Makki, the company is looking into alternative ways to set up the network so that future clashes will not be a threat.
Telecommunications services in Libya, some of the most under-developed in the world, are notoriously unreliable in times of peace. Equipment breaks and the network jams frequently, causing service to stop on a regular basis without damage done by clashes. [/restrict]
