Internet access in Gaza is collapsing as ISPs fall offline

October 28, 2023

As the conflict between Israel and Hamas reaches its third week, internet connectivity in Gaza is getting worse. “Today’s incident is the largest single disruption to internet connectivity we have observed in Gaza since the beginning of the conflict. By every metric of internet connectivity, things are in bad shape,” Madory, who is now the director of internet analysis at Kentik, told TechCrunch. Madory said that he monitored internet connectivity in Gaza during the 2014 war. Digital rights organization AccessNow has warned that internet outages in Palestine can have serious repercussions on the ground.
