In the old days, coups started by seizing TV and radio stations. Now they crimp the internet at 3am

Well in US

Well, in US, I've been surprised to see people who have a TV, but nothing running into the coax; they don't have cable *or* a TV antenna, they just stream everything. If you cut internet here, you'd have all these people who couldn't just not get online but couldn't get their TV either; they'd be very cranky, and if there was trouble in the capitol, they wouldn't know, they'd just know their internet's down.
