There will be enough capable and motivated internet specialist who will lauch a new internet.. There is no stopping worldwide commuication unless the infrastructure is damaged or if there is nobody to communicate with.

i hope youre right....i just dont know how joe and jill plumber would know where to find the new one, unless you mean it would just somehow take live ISP connection and automatically configure everything so they wouldnt have to do any of it themselves. I'm sure youre aware of how few people actually know ANYTHING about computers except how to turn them on and launch a program or browser.

How will the lights and the tv still work if the internet gets sacked?
The msm is going to parrot the official story...internet down?
More like we sacked the internet to keep all you's in line?

They can't keep us in line without their power structure in place?

I think they will desire a less resistant populace while they try to end our way of life?

It's a two-sided coin, there are those who honor people as a whole- and there are those who dishonor life in general.
I believe there are more honorable people than people not honorable- to themselves, or others.

When they shut down the internet we'll go right to the living room and turn on the TV.

The people can create a mesh-net WiFi LAN network with no license and at a higher speed than can be used via amateur radio operations.

Here are a couple of ATS threads on the subject of licensed and unlicensed two-way communications during a communications blackout.

Can a Citizens Band Network Be Practical?

Licensed Amateur "Ham" Radios vs CB and Unlicensed Radios

Here is a website devoted to using unlicensed communications in a SHTF scenario with lots of links.

I guess if they shut down the Internet, we will all have to go have coffee in the restaurants with friends or invite friends over to have picnics or coffee and doughnuts again.

Sounds so primitive now.

im sure you remember how Obama was waxing nostalgic over the time in US history when there were only three networks from which we got our news and it was all the same news! lol

"yeah Barry, the GOOD ol days when we were a captive audience and had no real alternative sources of information, yeah lets bring THOSE dark and ignorant times back!"

anyone know where that article is? I couldnt find it.

They do not have to shut down the Internet, all that has to happen is a EMP that disrupts the electric grid, set off enough of these across the world and it will be all over. ZOMBIE apocalypse.

They could all hunker down in their DUMB's and set off nuclear bombs everywhere, heck they could just wire all the nuclear facilities to melt down and explode all across the globe, poof we go.

I really doubt they would shut down the net for anything short of civil war and in that case

It could be done so the Internet is gone just start cutting lines they can use sat coms but

Or have ur isp cut off every residential cut land line and cell phones all together it would be really hard to do

Any phone that can dial out can get online

There are still people that can get into cell towers tho

And u can also connect a whole city with WiFi and ethernet to have some communication
Worlds longest WiFi I think is 200 miles it wouldn't be hard connect most city's we could literally rebuild the Internet over WiFi it be slow as he'll but could work

It be a lot of work for not a lot of pay off as it was said with the net they know what where doing why cut that off ever info is a valuable if u want to oppress people

Mainstream wise throughout sometimes i wish it would. Too bad it's so integrated into everything now. Surely as intended, look to it's DOD roots. As mentioned above, people will go back to their coffee shop talk, picnics and back to cable networks instead of using social media and it's candy farm games.

All the while underneath the web will stir as it had done before the masses were connected. No complaint there but this place would fall more silent. If still around then, quality over quantity was nice prior the social media audience.

Imo....The best thing that could happen would be if ALL forms of mass communication would be destroyed. That way the only news would be between neighbors. We would only be focused on what was happening in our immediate vicinity. Without mass communication of some sort social power cannot become concentrated. Unfortunately that will never happen.

I guess the best place to start is to look at a country were they have already pulled this off.


In place of the internet, the North Korean government is doing something that no other country has done: building a nationwide intranet that offers email and websites but is totally shut off from the rest of the world. It’s an audacious attempt to usher in some of the benefits of electronic communications while maintaining complete control on an entire population. It probably wouldn’t work anywhere else in the world, but the North Korean government keeps its people in such fear that few dare attempt dissent.

If the internet ever went down on such a scale, then I'd say it's time to start doing things the old-fashioned way: Start your neighborhood Area 51 club. If there is no internet, then the quickest way to reach out and find some of the members is to use the 5-degrees of separation. Start a club to discuss conspiracy theories, spread the word out, and eventually you may find a couple ATS members in your rank. If everyone started such a club in their own states/countries, then we'd know who the original ATS members were.

I treat this scenario like when my old haunts at the Astral Society forums closed their doors forever: At first, I couldn't find any of the members, so I kind of settled here. I recently found two other members because each of them started their own version of the Astral Society forums.

I had my computer down for about two weeks.
No other devices, no cell phone, etc...

First, the internet is a HUGE addiction, and aught (for those not in denial) be examined from that Perspective.
What happens when our fix vanishes?
After the shaking stops?
What is the flavor of your personal addiction is the fear from the news that you nurse upon daily?
When that tit dries up?
Do we start beating the 'little lady'?
Kick the dog?
Learn how to carve a whirligig for the grandson?
Without the internet, I found that I had hands, and the miraculous things that I found to do with them!
After the shaking stopped.
I don't really know if we all have any real need to communicate with anyone beyond that ridge over yonder.
Perhaps the mail will return.
The internet is not forever!

The Republicans are already scheduling a new bill that will give private ISP providers the ability to control what sites you can and cannot see, AKA deregulation. That will be the first milestone

Isn't Kim Dot Com busy creating an internet alike infrastructure that will not depend on hubs or ISP?

Everybody will be a connection point or something. Meganet

Kim's plan

I think governments won't like this ; )
