YANGON, Feb 7 — Internet access was partially restored in Myanmar today, Netblocks reported, as a nationwide web blockade failed to curb public outrage and protests against the coup that ousted elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

“Partial restoration of internet connectivity confirmed in #Myanmar from 2PM local time on multiple providers following information blackout,” the internet monitoring service said on Twitter.

Myanmar was plunged into cyber darkness yesterday at the military’s orders.

Netblocks said social media platforms remained off limits this afternoon.

But mobile phone customers using services with MPT, Ooredoo, Telenor and Mytel are now able to access mobile internet data and Wi-Fi.

Earlier today, Netblocks said connectivity in Myanmar was at 14 per cent of usual levels.

Despite the internet blackout several live feeds were broadcast of tens of thousands of protesters marching in the streets of Yangon.

United Nations special rapporteur on human rights in Myanmar Tom Andrews said the internet disruption was dangerous and a violation of human rights.

“The generals are now attempting to paralyse the citizen movement of resistance — and keep the outside world in the dark — by cutting virtually all internet access,” he tweeted. — AFP
