Internet restored in Niger
Neither the government nor the west African country’s four telecoms firms explained the outage.
In the capital Niamey, people began noticing connectivity was back around 11:30 pm (2230 GMT), with one phone company messaging clients to say the service interruption was “independent of its will”.
An industry association said the outage had cost Niger’s three private telecoms firms around $145,000 per day. ■
