Egypt’s internet services will not be shut down on 30 June “for any reason,” according to the managing director of internet service provider TE-Data.

Ahmed Osama made the statement as the country approaches planned protests against President Mohamed Morsi, who will complete the first year of his tenure on 30 June.

The former government cut off the country’s mobile phone networks on 28 January 2011, one of the factors that further fueled the 25 January Revolution against former president Hosni Mubarak.

According to Article 67 of the telecommunications law, special authorities are given to the government to place all telecommunications services, networks, operators or service providers under the jurisdiction of the state in situations pertaining to national security.
