Internet Connectivity Drops in Myanmar - Speedify to the Rescue
The end of January 2021 came with political events in Myanmar, where the military took power. Unfortunately this also resulted in Internet disruptions, according to NetBlocks - falling as low as 50% of ordinary levels. The cuts has spread across several network operators, including the state-owned Myanma Posts and Telecommunications (MPT) and Telenor.

Here at Speedify we also saw an important rise in usage from Myanmar - and decided it's time to help the people there access the Internet without any disruptions. After all, access to the free and open Internet is a human right.
