North Korea’s Internet service, which was out for almost 10 hours on Monday, went down two more times Tuesday, including a 31-minute stretch, according to Dyn Research.
The Manchester, N.H., company that tracks internet traffic and performance said “connectivity problems continue.”
The initial instability emerged Sunday followed by the full shutdown for nine and a half hours Monday. The two outages Tuesday included one that lasted from 10:41 a.m. ET to 11:12 a.m. ET.
The disruption inside the hermit kingdom comes as tensions grow with the United States over North Korea’s alleged computer hack attack on Sony Pictures, and the studio’s unreleased movie, The Interview, about a fictional attempt to kill the leader of the Pyongyang regime, Kim Jong Un.
After initially removing the film from distribution, Sony now plans to screen it in some theaters beginning Christmas Day.
Kyle York, of Dyn Research, tells USA TODAY that he expects to see more outages from the North Korean system in the coming days.
