Syria’s Internet Access Being Restored, Web Companies Say

Syria’s Internet links to the outside world were restored almost 20 hours after e-mail, websites and other services became inaccessible across much of the country, Google Inc. and other Web companies said.

Google’s Web services are coming back online in Syria after being down since yesterday, according to the search provider’s transparency report, which tracks the status of products available to users around the world. The report showed an increase in traffic prior to 10:30 a.m. New York time today.
