Libya's main Internet service provider, General Post and Telecommunications Company, began to cut Internet access on Friday, said Earl Zmijewski, general manager with Internet monitoring company Renesys.

It shows that Libya is following in Egypt's footsteps and that government is weak. But cutting the internet is too late. Too many people on streets. They don't really need internet to organize anymore. I say regime in Libya will fall.

I hoping it doesn't get too bad for the Libyan people, but I am pessimistic. When governments cut communications it usually means a violent response.
