No, because the government takes too much money from the people and they kill the people if they don't like them.. It is not a democratic government and the people don't have… many freedoms. This is proven by the results of the recent protests there; journalists were kicked out of the country and communication with the rest of the world was cut off.
Burma officially became the Union of Myanmar in 1989 however the new name is not universally recognised.

Myanmar is current run by a military dictatorship.
According to wikipedia, Burma's official name is Union of Myanmar.. Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burma . Further information: However, Myanmar was originally known …as Burma, and that is still its "official" name. No legislature in Burma has actually approved the name Myanmar, which is derived from the Burmese short-form name Myanma Naingngandaw and has been promoted by the military authorities in Burma.
In the Burmese language Burma can be called either Myanmah or Bama. During British Colonial rule the country was called Burma in English. In 1989 the military Govt. officially… changed the English version of the country's name from Burma to Myanmar, it also changed the English versions of many place names in the country (Like Rangoon to YAngon)

They both are called the same. Burma is the old British name and Myanmar is the native name

Yes, if course Myanmar has internet service. It includes dial up, ADSL broadband, Wimax, Skynet and IP star. ADSL is widely used and speed is up to 2048 kbps. Mobile internet …was introduced in 2009. GSM and CDMA 800 network can use internet. GSM speed is 64kbps and CDMA is 3mbps but reduced to 128kbps in 2011 due to DDOS attck. But it does not still get back to 3mbps. CDMA users are now facing slow connection.
