Re: Egypt: Internet Down

You just block it. More videos if I can figure how to get them here. Might put in other thread.

But wouldn't that interfere with communications as a whole?.

Re: Egypt: Internet Down

You would think but I am sure they have other ways of communicating interiorly. Just public access is blocked?

Your right, but it didn't start there at all.
Are you familiar with the Patriot Act?

Re: Egypt: Internet Down

It is really frightening how easily they were able to kill the internet in Egypt. You know that they already have a plan ready to do the same thing here in the US. It's all about controlling the flow of information and silencing all dissenting voices.

Re: Egypt: Internet Down

The government does not have a central control point for the Internet, which means it must rely on being able to force ISPs to comply. There was still one ISP operating on Friday afternoon.
