The Minster of communication and information Ministry has vowed to have no more Internet connection problem in the country, but he was not able to keep his words. We still suffer from Internet cut-offs. There is no Internet connection almost in every part of the country except Addis.
Every entity, which has depended on an Internet connection for normal and successful, functioning, has been affected in a condition where there is no responsible body for the damage.
Even those organizations that have signed a deal with Facebook to promote and communicate with customers have been affected. People are complaining about going back to the old communications era where we use post offices for communication. We are not able to send an e-mail using our cell phones. Nobody is taking responsibility but this should stop.
We need our uninterrupted internet connection.
