Sudden Internet Outage Across Myanmar

On 4 June 2021, internet service across Myanmar went down suddenly for a little more than an hour beginning at 10:30 UTC (5pm local).

Since the military coup on 1 February 2021, internet service in Myanmar has been plagued by recurring nightly outages, weekend blackouts, social media censorship and even an inadvertent BGP hijack of Twitter that leaked outside the country.

While this is the first national blackout in several weeks, the situation in the country remains fluid and dangerous for many citizens of Myanmar.
