Syrian social networks on the internet cut: company

.- Two-thirds of the networks active in the protests that have shaken Internet Syria were cut Friday, said a company supervisor of the network. James Cowie, of Renesys, a company based in New Hampshire that monitorializa Internet routing information in real time, said in a blog from the 3:35 GMT routes to 40 of 59 networks became inaccessible for half an hour .

"The networks are not accessible are basically all reserved prefixes for mobile data networks SyriaTel, and ISPs (Internet Service Providers) smaller ones, including Sawa, INET, and RUNNet" he said. Cowie added that the network prefixes that are accessible are those in the government of Syria, "although many government websites are slow to respond or fall." For its part, Google's Web site that monitors the traffic of their popular services worldwide, Syria showed traffic levels far below normal.

Cowie said the Internet in Syria depends primarily on a domestic supplier, the state SyriaTel, but "do not know yet how he coordinated the court, or what specific regions or cities would be more affected than others." In Syria, residents said the Internet was low power in Damascus and in the coastal city of Latakia on Friday.
