Several days ago most social media websites, such as Facebook, Instagram, Viber, WhatsApp were blocked in Sri Lanka. Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) confirmed the ban.
Initially, TRC has a plan to monitor and filter the content on social media. But this was so difficult task, so they decided simple block all social media.
The TRC has no confirmation when the blockade will be lifted.
“It will depend on the situation in Kandy.”

How VPN for Sri Lanka works
Intenet restrictions and site blocks are based on IP address. This means when you connect to the Internet in Sri Lanka you get Sri Lanka IP address. And all social media sites are blocked for your IP.
If you move to another country you will have another IP address and can access Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp and any other site.
VPN helps to change your IP address virtually and avoid all country’s geo restrictions.
This is easy and reliable solution.

Facebook is blocked in Sri Lanka. However, both the president and prime minister are posting on it.
That one action clearly illustrates what’s wrong in Sri Lanka: Laws are applied selectively and apply only to them not to us.

Current regime in #SriLanka blocked messaging services so many who work abroad are now disconnected from their families. As elderly parents have minimal computer literacy they can’t use #VPN or #Tor. Government is violating #HumanRights. #LKA #InternetCensorship #NetNeutrality
