Myanmar to Ban Viber?

An engineer from Myanmar's Ministry of Communication has warned[my] that Viber and other VOIP services might be banned in the country because of revenue losses of the state and the absence of contracts between ministry and the users. Internet users immediately criticized the statement.

    I have been trying for a week and now I give up. I think our super great Ministry block viber. Yes, current users can communicate. But new users and factory-resetted users can’t get activation code anymore.
