Hours before protesters in Egypt announce new mass protests against the government for this Friday, are being reported widespread disruption of Internet service and telephone messaging.

Some people reported that their connection to the network was completely suspended, while others only had problems accessing social networks like Twitter or Facebook, which have been used to organize protests.

The country's security chiefs assured the President Hosni Mubarak that can handle any problems that arise after Friday prayers.

Mohammed ElBaradei, declared opponent, became the country with the intention to participate in the mobilization of Friday.
