Mobile phone services have been partially restored in Egypt after a government-ordered communications blackout aimed at stopping the largest anti-government protests to hit the country in decades.
Vodafone service was working Saturday morning, about 24 hours after it was cut. Other service providers remained down, as did the Internet.
Vodafone said Friday that the Egyptian government had ordered all mobile telephone operators to suspend services "in selected areas" of the country.
Britain-based Vodafone Group PLC is one of the largest mobile phone operators in Egypt, with more than 25 million subscribers.
Protesters have used text messaging and social networking websites to coordinate demonstrations.
