Internet shut down in Iran in response to fuel protests

In a bid to quell growing protests across the country over a hike in gasoline prices, the Iranian government has severely restricted the nation’s online services. The blackout appears to be part of an effort to prevent people from organizing protests and disseminating news of the unrest. Oracle’s Internet Intelligence described it as ’the largest internet shutdown ever observed in Iran’.
