North Korea no longer lets tourists use 3G

If you were among those who were surprised when North Korea announced that it would let tourists use mobile internet over the 3G network, well, you were right. Today, a tourism company in the country reported that access has been cut.

According to Koryo Tours, it is still possible to buy SIM cards to make international calls, but the internet is no longer available, as explained in the company website, in a post echoed by Mashable.

North Korea had been on a liberation streak for the past few months. In January, the Kim Jong-un regime started to allow tourists to enter cell phones in the country and, later, to use the internet.
