NAY PYI TAW: Internet access in Myanmar is returning to normal after a full-blown connection snap amid ongoing protests in the country against the military takeover, traffic tracker NetBlocks reported on Monday.

"Internet connectivity is being restored in #Myanmar from 9 am local time; network data show national connectivity rising to ordinary levels after information blackout; social media still restricted for most users; incident duration ~8 hours," Sputnik news reported citing NetBlocks.
