Engadget: Bangladesh shuts off mobile internet ahead of election

Engadget: Bangladesh shuts off mobile internet ahead of election. “The Bangladeshi government isn’t just counting on Facebook and Twitter crackdowns to protect its December 30th parliamentary election. The country’s Telecommunication Regulatory Commission has shut down 3G and 4G mobile data to ‘prevent rumors and propaganda’ from skewing the vote. The measure took effect immediately and was poised to last through the end of election day.”
