ORDERED SHUT: Argentina's government ordered the closure one of the nation’s three leading Internet providers, Grupo Clarin.

THE REASON: It’s part of an antimonopoly campaign. The order says Grupo Clarin illegally absorbed the Fibertel company through its Cablevision subsidiary because it failed to obtain prior approval from the commerce secretary.

USERS AFFECTED: Grupo Clarin must inform its more than 1 million customers that they have 90 days to find new ways of getting online.
