One person was hurt in the incidents which took place within minutes of each other.
Two unidentified youths entered into the office of Aircel at Karan Nagar, located less than 300 metres from Zonal Police Headquarters, at around 11.30 am and asked the staffers to leave, police said.
"The militants then hurled a grenade inside the premises and fled from the place," a police official said.
A similar incident was repeated at Vodafone showroom around 500 metres away from the scene of the first attack.
There were no injuries in the two incidents that shook the area, prompting the police to issue an alert for the assailants. The officer said all check points in the city have been alerted after the incident.
Militants had earlier targeted mobile telecommunication facilities in north Kashmir Sopore town in May by carrying out grenade attacks and later killing two persons associated with the telecom trade.
The attacks later spread to nearby Pattan town before militants carried out similar strikes on mobile installations in the city. Friday's attacks on mobile telecommunication facilities in Kashmir came after a lull of over a month.
Pertinent to mention, the local militant outfit, Hizbul Mujhadeen, on Thursday claimed to have submitted a report by the inquiry commission, which it had set up in the wake of mysterious attacks in North Kashmir during last couple of months.
The commission has suspended one of its highest ranking militant leader from the basic membership of the organization as according to the outfit he has been found involved in the killing of innocent people and the recent attacks on cellular towers in Kashmir Valley.

In a statement to local press, Hizb spokesperson Salim Hashmi said that one of its top lieutenants is no more a part of the Hizb and he should not be linked with the organization. Quoting Chief Commander of the outfit Syed Salahuddin, he said, “During his address to the Hizb Command Council, Syed Salahuddin said that his basic membership has been suspended as he played a key role in murdering some innocent persons, indulged in character assassination of Hurriyat leaders and attacked the telecommunication set up in Valley.”
“The report submitted by the inquiry commission has proved that one of its top members in an utter disregard to the Hizb leadership violated the constitution of the outfit and carried out condemnable acts. Our constitution does not allow or permit such actions,” Salahuddin said.
Interestingly, the Jammu and Kashmir Police stands vindicated, which had maintained since the beginning that a breakaway module of Hizb was responsible for tower attacks and killings in Sopore.
