What is an
Internet Shutdown?

An internet shutdown is an intentional disruption of internet or electronic communications, rendering them inaccessible or effectively unusable, for a specific population or within a location, often to exert control over the flow of information. It happens when someone — usually a government — intentionally disrupts the internet or two way digital communication platforms to control what people say or do.

In this process the Internet speed is deliberately slowed down, making it difficult or impossible for users to access certain websites or services, livestream. For example: downgrading mobile internet service from 3G or 4G to 2G.
