Bali mo­bile shut­down

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - UK WORLD TODAY -

ALL phone com­pa­nies in Bali have agreed to shut down the mo­bile in­ter­net for 24 hours to mark the coun­try’s Day of Si­lence.

The an­nual event is so sacred that even reach­ing for a smart­phone to send a tweet or up­load a selfie to so­cial me­dia could cause of­fence.

But this year it will be al­most im­pos­si­ble to do that since tele­coms firms have agreed to the shut­down dur­ing Nyepi, a day mark­ing new year on the pre­dom­i­nantly Hindu is­land.
