Good not so very early morning John   :)

This posted not using Zenmate because CBF works better for me now via Firefox and just checked BBC iplayer via Chrome using Zenmate and that is all working too.

Scary stuff if they are bring the whole internet system down. Makes you wonder what is to come!

IKEA is dead expensive in Turkey anyway compared to the UK so nothing lost there by boycotting them   ;)

I don't know what they were doing but it seems to have been localised - speaking to folks this morning and Ankara was fine whereas Istanbul wasnt.

Friends of mine said theirs went off last night but they just went to bed and it was on in the morning 6ish.

The trouble here is there are always problems with internet connections and we probably wouldn't realise there was anything wrong, just business as normal!

I think they are preparing for one of two outcomes.

We'll either see things return to normal(ish) service over the coming weeks with both Twitter and YouTube becoming freely available again or they are preparing for a more sophisticated clamp down on social media and other sites that do not follow the party line.  It may well be a case of bye bye Facebook in Turkey as well.

Time will tell, not much anyone here can do to influence things.

Thanks WW - just popped back to say I've got it sorted now, seemed to be the wifi connection I was using. Changed it to another and it's working fine. Was a bit panicked as I've come to rely on it and thought it might finally be blocked.
