Internet Restored in Egypt

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Egypt’s five day Internet blockade has come to an end today after Egyptian authorities restored Internet services in the country.

Restoring of the Internet comes one  day after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak vowed he will not seek re-election after his current term, ending a 30 year run.

Since Mubarak made his announcement, the Egyptian army is heavily calling for an end to the civilian protests.

“Your message has arrived, your demands became known… you are capable of bringing normal life to Egypt,” the Egyptian army announced, according to the BBC.

Since the Egyptian governments Internet shutdown, concerns have risen that an Internet “kill switch” in the United States could lead to a similar situation here.
