As Tech Crunch reports:
According to multiple Internet monitoring services, Syrian authorities have cut off access to the Internet. The news comes as an uprising has shaken the country for months, with an opposition trying to get together to face president and dictator Bashar al Assad. In the capital city Damascus, mobile services and land lines are affected as well.
According to some, though, mobile service may still be partially active.
What groups in Syria still have Internet access is also questionable.
