The Government of Iran today imposed restrictions on the use of the internet, with mobile connections cut off for many users, with access difficulties still occurring in some parts of the country, it was announced.

“Network traffic data shows a major disruption of internet service in Iran, with mobile internet cut off for many users,” online platform NetBlocks said today.

In turn, the fixed internet is working slowly.

Iran has faced several protests since the death of Masha Amini, on September 16, who was arrested three days earlier for not wearing the Islamic headscarf correctly.

Outages in internet service began to occur since the start of the protests, having improved in recent weeks.

However, applications such as WhatsApp, Instagram or Twitter continued to have problems.

Initially, the protesters, mainly young people and women, demanded more freedom, but now they also demand the end of the Islamic Republic.
