Less than a week to the election in Burma, internet users in Karenni State capital Loikaw have to contend with internet services being cut off frequently. Internet cafes cannot access the net easily, users said.
“Internet connection in cafes are being cut frequently and when available the speed is very slow for over a week now,” a university student in Loikaw Township, told Kantarawaddy.
The Burmese junta’s intention is to block the flow of information out of the country before the polls, hence the tampering with internet services, local sources said.
