How to Unblock Facebook, Messenger, BBC News, Twitter in Egypt

Last updated on November 14th, 2019 at 12:47 pm

Several days ago (since September 22, 2019) main Egyptian Internet service providers  – Telecom Egypt and Raya – started blocking some social media platforms and news websites. Among blocked sites are Facebook, Facebook Messenger, BBC News, Skype, Twitter, and others. For now the only reliable and safe way to avoid Internet censorship in Egypt is using a secure VPN service.

You can try Sahrzad service and access any blocked sites today for free!

According to netblocks report:

“The new instances of network filtering are likely to impact media freedom and the rights to free assembly and association at a time when dissent is already limited in the region”

Internet blocks are currently limited to some specific online platforms and there is no sign of a wider nationwide internet blackout at the time of writing.

Subscribers of state-run telecommunications operator Telecom Egypt and Raya, which are also marketed under other brands, are currently impacted by the social media and news platform restrictions.
