Intelsat has shutdown the primary satellite link for Zimbabwe's state communications company for non-payment, which has affected most of the ISPs in the country.

I can't really blame them. I doubt the Internet is considered critical
infrastructure over there yet, and I doubt Intelsat would care... but this
is interesting in the sense that even if you can't fault intelsat in any
way... Intelsat, Inmarsat, etc. run quite a bit, and if it's a
"country" that gets disconnected, that is a problem even if it's not
"their" problem.
