Iran Slows Internet Access Before Student Protests

RiffRafff writes “Iran is at it again, pre-emptively slowing or cutting Internet access before anticipated student protests.” From the article: “Seeking to deny the protesters a chance to reassert their voice, authorities slowed Internet connections to a crawl in the capital, Tehran. For some periods on Sunday, Web access was completely shut down — a tactic that was also used before last month’s demonstration. The government has not publicly acknowledged it is behind the outages, but Iran’s Internet service providers say the problem is not on their end and is not a technical glitch.”
