Citing security concerns, BTRC issued the network suspension order on Sunday.

A senior BTRC official Thursday told Xinhua that the government decided to restore network in consideration of the plight of the cell phone users in the bordering areas.

The BTRC in its order to the operators issued on Sunday said they have to suspend mobile network coverage in the border areas "for the sake of the country's security in the current circumstances."
