The Internet partially resumed in Myanmar last Sunday, Netblocks reported that as a nationwide network blockade failed to contain public anger and protests against the coup d’état to remove elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
The Internet surveillance service said on Twitter: “After the information interruption, multiple vendors confirmed the partial restoration of the Internet connection from 2pm local time (1:00pm U.S. Standard Time) at #Myanmar,”.
Myanmar plunged into cyber darkness on Saturday under military orders.
Netblocks said that social media platforms were still banned on Sunday afternoon.
However, mobile phone customers using MPT, Ooredoo, Telenor and Mytel services can now access mobile Internet data and Wi-Fi.
Netblocks said earlier on Sunday that connectivity in Myanmar is 14% of normal levels.
Despite the Internet interruption, several real-time Facebook feeds were broadcast, and tens of thousands of protesters marched on the streets of Yangon.
The UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Myanmar, Tom Andrews, said that Internet interruption is dangerous and a violation of human rights.
He said on Twitter: “The generals are now trying to paralyze the citizens’ resistance movement and put the outside world in darkness by cutting off almost all Internet access.”
