Zimbabweans can use Telegram instead of WhatsApp after Government blocked social media sites on Tuesday.
An article on TechZim says Government could not block Telegram because block the IP addresses of every server the messenger uses to communicate with the outside world. In one instance Russia also tried the same tactic but failed last year becauseTelegram essentially kept changing servers and the Russian government couldn’t keep up. Telegram also uses domain fronting which allows them to effectively host a service on another company’s system whilst effectively hiding the traffic source. This means traffic just appears like it’s coming from Google and censorship becomes that much harder.
