Internet has returned to Somalia after an outage of more than three weeks that cost the Horn of Africa nation the equivalent of $10m a day.
The country has restored its internet connection after repairing a severed undersea cable that was accidentally hit by a ship, a telecoms official said on Monday.
"The internet is now back, and clients are using it," said Adnan Ali, the media director for Hormuud Telecom, the country's top operator.
University studies were disrupted, and businesses had to close or improvise to remain open during the shutdown.
The lack of internet service also stranded patients who were seeking medical attention abroad as they couldn not access online paperwork.
