DTAC was ordered to restrict its customers from accessing Facebook on May 28 by the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO), according to a representative of Telenor Group of Norway, DTAC's major shareholder. 

Telenor Asia vice-president Tor Odland wrote an e-mail to Aftenposten, a Norwegian newspaper, that the company received a call from the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission, which has been under the NCPO since the May 22 coup, to temporarily prevent its customers from entering Facebook. 

The restriction was carried out at 3.35pm, impacting around 10 million DTAC users, according to Mr Odland.
