Internet services have resumed in the Democratic Republic of Congo's capital, Kinshasa - a day after provisional results of the presidential election were announced, reports the BBC's Gaius Koweme from the city.
The government ordered a shutdown of internet services during the counting of votes, saying it did not want people to spread "false" information.
Critics accused the government of trying to suppress the truth about the counting process.
Residents in the eastern city of Goma have also confirmed that internet services have been restored there, our reporter adds.
