Egypt loses internet and SMS

The recent news pieces on Egypt have shocked the world and a variety of social media platforms have now gone down including Twitter, Facebook, and BlackBerry. However, just when you thought enough was enough, SMS and the internet are both also said to be down.

According to reports, people in Cairo are having trouble with SMS and connecting with the internet altogether. This news comes after the shocking scenes we saw of Egyptian protesters getting shot down not too long ago. After speaking with one resident of Cairo, we have found out that landline is currently the only means of communication whilst riot police continue to set cars on fire.

We are still currently unaware of the reasons behind this internet blackout and the internet and mobile providers are all staying tight-lipped over the current situation.
