A widespread internet service outage has been reported in Iran, with many of the country’s internet providers reportedly affected.
NetBlocks, a non-governmental organization that monitors cybersecurity and internet governance, reports that connectivity in the country was as low as 65% of normal levels during the night. The organization also reports that the data available indicates a purposeful or accidental cut in international connectivity. It remains unclear if the cut was intentional or done as part of Iran’s plan to move to an internal intranet system.
The outage has showed some signs of recovery with real-time network measurements showing overall accessibility around 2 a.m. time in Jerusalem.
