Internet In Egypt Goes Down

Posted Jan 27, 2011

Reports have been flooding about the Internet in Egypt going down just hours before the largest planned protest. “Egypt has shut off the internet,” according to The Arabist. Multiple internet services in Egypt are being affected. “No internet, no SMS, what is next? Mobile phones and land lines? So much for stability. #Jan25 #Egypt,” tweeted CNN reporter Ben Wedeman. BlackBerry Internet has been taken down too.
