Reporters Without Borders says the Internet remains a rare commodity in Burma.
In its global Internet rights report, the group says Burma's military government has granted Internet access to only a few hundred hand-picked people. It says those who receive such access are only allowed to use it to send e-mail.
Reporters Without Borders also criticized Burma for enacting a law that bans the import, possession or use of a fax machine or modem without government permission. The group says anyone caught using the Internet to undermine the state faces up to 15 years in prison.
