[huridocs-tech] Bulletin on the Internet Shutdown in Burma
The OpenNet Initiative has compiled a bulletin on the recent demonstrations in Burma and the Burmese government's shutdown of the Internet there. ONI conducted a technical analysis of the Internet's uptime, documenting a complete shutdown in Burma, followed by intermittent periods of up-time throughout early October, with an apparent return to full connection on October 13 for one of the two ISPs and on October 16 for the other. This bulletin presents these results and investigates the impact that the use of communication technologies had on shaping these key events.
The report, "Pulling the Plug: A Technical Review of the Internet Shutdown in Burma," is available for download at: http://opennet.net/research/bulletins/013 .
