Burma near bottom in Internet freedom ranking

Burma is one of the worst countries in the world for Internet freedom, listed alongside Yemen and Ethiopia as the most restrictive countries for Internet benefits, according to The World Wide Web Foundation, created by Tim Berners-Lee. Statistics also showed a global increase in moderate-to-extensive censorship, and less countries passing laws to prevent mass surveillance. Berners-Lee maintains that Internet freedom should be a basic human right.
