Was B-Mobile intentionally blocked in Tashichho Dzong?
I visited the Thimphu Tshechu on Saturday around noon, and noticed that within the Dzong my mobile phone (using B-Mobile) was unable to make or receive calls or SMSs. Once I exited the Tsechu grounds into the pathway towards the rose garden my phone's connection seemed to revive. I wonder whether this "blackout" was intentional to avoid disruption at the Tshechu (known as mobile phone jamming) or else the network failed for some period due to the heavy mobile traffic in the Dzong. Has anyone experienced a similar event using B-Mobile or TashiCell?
