Internet access is getting cut as anti-government protests continue throughout Iran.
Telecoms in Iran have cut off internet access in several cities as these anti-government protests continue. Hopefully this makes it more difficult for the anti-government protesters to further coordinate their operations.
Several reports indicate that telecoms providers in Iran have begun blocking internet access across several cities in the country as mass protests erupted for the third day in a row.
Among the telecoms company was Hamrahe Aval, the primary Mobile Telecommunication Company of Iran (MTCI or MCI) as social media continues to play a pivotal role in documenting mass protests and subsequent brutal crackdown on peaceful protesters in the country.
The MTCI is considered a firm jointly held by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and other firms controlled by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
Iran’s two main internet and communications service providers are the Telecommunication Company of Iran (TCI) and Irancell. TCI and its subsidiaries, including MCI, are owned by Tosee Etemad Mobin Company which has close links to Iran’s IRGC.
The Iranian government needs to do a serious crack down on these protesters. This is not a legitimate popular uprising. This is an attempt by the Zionists to subvert and control the country from within.
There’s also talk that the government might order a shut down of the Telegram app which has been popular for coordinating activities throughout Iran.
They should shut down all methods of communication if necessary. The survival of the Iranian government is at stake. They are the main regional power opposing international Zionism in the region so it is vitally important that they crush these protests.
