“People can still make a phone call and send messages with their regular connection. Also, internet providers with fiber-optic networks are still accessible, so people can get the services they might need,” Pramana concluded.

The Bali provincial government will send a message to all the residents concerning this policy so people can make preparations.

i hope the religious leaders appreciate the tolerance of the non-hindus, trust in the religious strength of their own fellow believers doesn't seem to be all that great when one has to react with bans or shutting down the internet, real believers would voluntarily do without the internet.
