I read two articles from Computer Journal and I wanted to share some excerpts here.
Professor Dr. Kochiro Ochimizu from Hankuk Aviation University, who took part in the First International Conference on Compuer Applications in Yangon, said, in an interview by Myanmar Computer Journal, that Burmese students are hardworking and motivated to learn. For Computer PhD students, only one thing is lacking in Burma -- a condusive environment. ..... A PhD candidate (Computer Science University here in Burma now has Ph.D. candidates) will need to have full access to the Internet for his professional research so he can see and interact with the real world out there. (sic.)

The following is another one.
Computer Journal also contains news on BaganNet. According to the report, BaganNet currently has 8000 subscribers and 300 broadband users. The reporter said that the BaganNet service is still slow and difficult to dial up if many users are on-line. There is also a problem of receiving no response from the server. In addition it is difficult to dial up on Saturday and Sunday nights especially when there are football (soccer) matches around Europe.

It's been difficult to get connected to BaganNet dial-up server lately. It took me 15 tries (redials) to get connected.
