asala asked me to post this as a thread so that more people in Egypt might see it. Please move to whatever forum you deem appropriate.

Although it's most likely just a marketing attempt it is a nice gesture.

At least they now have some sort of internet even though its slow its still something, although i still think a good lot of information is coming out regardless of the media and internet blackout.

55% of Americans have no access to high speed internet. Once you leave the cities there is none. Or in one apartment I lived in a few years ago, you could get it across the street, but not on our side.


Anyways. Is this a scam where everyone uses this Swedish number, then when things calm down.... they get sent a big ol' bill for a very long distance call???

I don't know. How can we find out? I would imagine normal toll charges might apply and that the people dialing out would know.

Here's what appears to be one of their sites.... status.telecomix.org...

Oh boy...this guy on al Jazeera just said that by turning off the internet the government gave the Egyptian people nothing else to do but take to the streets. That it backfired on the government. There's probably a lot of validity in this statement.

Technology is not God.

Why is the world pushing technology in Egypt?

They have bigger issues right now.

Being able to get word in and out of a country when something like this is happening can make a world of difference. Knowing that people in the world are aware of what is happening and whether there is support or (in some cases) help coming can go a long way toward shoring up the human spirit. Perhaps you don't remember what happened with Lebanon 5 or 6 years ago. The outcry from the world had a huge influence on that situation. Hope that helps.

In Romania back in 1989 we solved the communication problem by taking over the state television as a first step of the revolution..

That's the truth though honestly.. if they took our internet away, we might (might) just have the nerve to go out and protest.

For now, we are content to bicker online though, even though 3 years into this depression nothing has changed.

Wonder if they thought of that! Tweet it with the keywords Egypt and newstations. There's no mention of it anywhere that I can find.

Very interesting.

The other day I was sorting...and came across a cd with dial up service.
Was tossing it, but for some reason I decided at the last minute to keep it.

Government will be hard pressed to cut off land lines, thats near criminal.

There is nearly always a work around. Keep those IP numbers handy.

For we never know.
