Turkey Bans Some Google Services

IBTimes reports some doubleplusungood news for Turkish Google users:

Turkey has imposed an indefinite ban on Internet search engine Google and many of its services citing “legal” reasons.

In an official statement, Turkey’s Telecommunications Presidency said it has banned access to many of Google IP addresses without assigning clear reasons. The statement did not confirm if the ban is temporary or permanent.

Some Google services will be completely inaccessible or will take a long time to load, the statement said.

Maybe it’s time Google rolls out their “service availabiliy” page for other countries than just China?
