[liberationtech] internet blackout in turkey?

The Renesys report from Nov 2012 provides some info:
Turkey is in the 'Low risk' column (code: TR). Opinions vary though:
"[...] Turkey, by contrast, has numerous excellent providers (many using
networks beyond their own frontiers) but, at last count, there were some
1500 or more web sites blocked. Turkey hasn't shut down the internet to
date but could do so at a moment's notice for political reasons"

>From what I've heard, 3G appears to be blocked (overload?) within Taksim,
but is ok outside. Apparently people remove passwords from their wifi
connections so everyone can use it. Have been asking for clearer reports,
but nothing compelling thus far :/
