Internet returns in Sudan after one month

After over a month of blackout by the Sudanese authorities, mobile internet services have been restored in the country.

A Khartoum Court on Tuesday ordered the return of Internet after the Association of Consumers’ Protection submitted a legal case three weeks ago

Sudan’s ruling Transitional Military Council (TMC) had cut the internet on June 3 after government soldiers stormed a peaceful sit-in in Khartoum.

Protesters and rights group say the internet blockade was an attempt to suppress protests against the generals, who had seized power after the army ousted veteran president Shamseddine Kabbashi in April following nationwide protests against his rule.

Internet users in Khartoum told Anadolu Agency that the Internet service has returned to the customers of the two companies. They also mentioned that the service didn’t go back to the biggest Telecomunication Kuwaiti company of Zain.
