I don't think so but I think that there are interruptions.

There is still BGP to at least some Iranian sites. The University of  
Teheran, for example, has

*> 80.66.176.0/21   38.101.161.116       61951             0 174 7473

*> 80.66.184.0/21   38.101.161.116       61951             0 174 7473  
12880 29068 i

Its (English) web service,

http://www.ut.ac.ir/en/

is at 80.66.177.63

and that is both reachable and pingable. So, the site is reachable and  
the DNS is still there.

However, the (small but steady) Iranian audience for AmericaFree.TV
has largely, but not entirely, vanished for the last 24 hours. That  
suggests to me
something is being blocked, but not uniformly.

Marshall
