De facto regime shutting down cell phone service nationally

Radio Globo reports: Digicell and Tigo networks are completely out of service.

Only the third network, Claro, is still up.

Combine this with the other attacks on media: the goal is clearly to shut down the democratic sharing of information across the country.

Meanwhile, with the curfew called for mere minutes from now, the real threat is violent repression of the multitudes around the Brazilian embassy.

And with the Armed Forces continuing to show signs of failing to understand the international context, the flyover of the Brazilian embassy earlier today raises a very real fear: will they attempt to storm the sovereign territory of Brazil to capture President Zelaya?

Tigo is sort of up. It was down for a while and service breaks up a bit. But my internet modem with Tigo is working for now.
At this this is the situation in the west of Honduras.

I'm glad its back. Its odd that two cell phone networks went out at the same time, on a national level.

Radio Globo was left unable to contact many reporters, whose phones were on Digicel and Tigo after Claro cancelled their contracts.
