YANGON, MYANMAR (BNO NEWS) — A nationwide internet service outage in Myanmar has entered its second week, but the cause remains unclear, according to a local newspaper report on Monday.

The Weekly Eleven News reported the outage on Monday, saying internet service nationwide had failed more than a week ago and has left residents and companies throughout the company without internet since.

But the Myanmar government has still not revealed what is causing the internet outage, and how long it will last, angering local residents. As a result, scores of internet cafes - many of them in Yangon - have closed their businesses until the outage has been resolved.

Hotels, airlines, media organizations and private hospitals are being affected by the outage.
