[liberationtech] internet blackout in turkey?

We have reports from inside Taksim that yesterday 3G was unavailable in
Taksim itself, but telephony was fine. Simple moving to a street near
Taksim would reestablish 3G connectivity. It´s unclear if this is
intentional or simply the network being overloaded. Also people seem to
be removing password protection from wifi access points near Taksim to
facilitate connectivity. Webcams overlooking Taksim have been down since
yesterday, and as of today webcams overlooking Istiklal (big street
leading up to Taksim) are also down. http://tks.ibb.gov.tr/
