UKRAINE’S national telecoms operator Ukrtelecom is restoring internet services after driving back a major cyber-attack.
The company said it restricted customer access to protect military users and critical infrastructure.
Global internet monitor Netblocks said it was the most severe disruption to affect Ukrtelecom since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine started last month.
Netblocks said it saw a collapse in connectivity to 13% of pre-war levels.
However, Ukrainian users on different internet providers, who spoke to the BBC, reported no problems.
Ukrtelecom says it is the country’s biggest provider of fixed internet in terms of geographical coverage, but second after Kyivstar in terms of number of clients. It told the BBC it had been operating at about 80% of its full coverage because of damage caused by the Russian invasion. – bbc.com
