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
*> 126.96.36.199/21 188.8.131.52 61951 0 174 7473
12880 29068 i
*> 184.108.40.206/21 220.127.116.11 61951 0 174 7473
12880 29068 i
Its (English) web service,
is at 18.104.22.168
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.
