Egypt cuts off Internet access

Posted on Friday, January 28 2011 @ 11:59:36 CET by


Ahead of a new round of mass protests, the Egyptian authorities have disconnected large parts of their Internet from the rest of the world and disrupted text messaging to make it harder for protesters to communicate with each other.
Jim Cowie, chief technology officer at Internet-monitoring firm Renesys, said that at approximately 2:34 p.m. PT, his company "observed the virtually simultaneous withdrawal of all routes to Egyptian networks in the Internet's global routing table." (See CNET's earlier coverage of network disruptions.)

"Virtually all of Egypt's Internet addresses are now unreachable, worldwide," Cowie wrote in a blog post this evening.

A major service provider for Egypt, Italy-based Seabone, reported that there was no Internet traffic going into or out of the country after around 2:30 p.m. PT (12:30 a.m. local time), according to an Associated Press dispatch.
