Egypt Restores Internet Access

Wednesday Feb 2nd 2011 by Staff

Cell service has also been turned back on.

Washington Post: As of 11:29 a.m. local time, all major Egyptian ISPs seem to have restored service to their customers. News outlets report that cell services that were shut down have resumed as well. Egyptians have begun posting messages about the state of affairs and what is happening with the government protests.

Observers say that the Internet shutdown likely made things worse for the Egyptian government. "One of big questions is does it work for a government to shut off the network entirely? I think the answer is no," said John Palfrey, a co-director of Harvard University's Berkman Center for Internet & Society.
