The NSA scandal could be used as an excuse to shut down the internet and Edward Snowden may have been part of an intentional leak to justify shutting down the source of global communications that have so thoroughly exposed the evil actions of the elite .

Global Internet Kill Switch

i find this highly unlikely. look at the nuke situation, and tell me what would happen if there was only one nuke on the planet. who would have control of it when so many powerful nations would want control?

the only other option is you give a kill switch to every nation, but then that gets equally messy.

a nation may create something like this, but it will not be out of a collaboration with other nations, and it will not be for the good of people. i find it highly unlikely snowden had anything to do with this, and killing all the internet in america would cause huge riots.

Good job I kept my old Modem.

A really good app for a mobile phone would be one that enable mobiles to talk to each other without going through the NETWORK!
It could work like the file sharing systems do, each phone would act as a server, and information jumps from phone to phone until it reaches its destination.

Any APP developers out there?

There already is a kill switch.....the DNS servers are the backbone of the internet as we know it.
Without them going to abovetopsecret.com would bring up a goose egg.

You could however still route through the network the old school way.

74.86.5.188 paste that into your browser and see where you go.

GSM is not satellite, its ground based radio transmissions. It was designed as a replacement for analog cell networks. It then expanded to data transmissions then to GPRS which is a type of packet transmission like thats used in amateur radio.

I can build a digital communications network out of ham radios.

Dont worry about it and make friends whit knowledgeable hammys.
If the internet is ever shut down, the hams will get us on the air.

Trust me when i say hams are in the perfect position to do this.
Modern transceivers are capable of anything, in the proper configuration.

Global Internet Kill Switch


I suppose Snowden didn't help the debate against it...but our own Congress has been hunting hard for reasons to have an Internet Kill switch for a very long time now. I don't think these leaks really did much either way for the real outcome of it all. They own the net by way of owning the MAE servers it routes through. Kill them? The net dies within a few seconds. They have a kill switch already. They just don't have the ability to activate it on a whim and without involving more people that is comfy on that kind of thing, IMO.

The global economy is so completely interconnected and dependent upon the internet that I agree there would be total chaos if it was shut down. While it is unlikely that the internet would be completely shut down, during a global economic collapse / World War III, it could be a last resort measure - control the flow of information by emergency broadcasts through television and smart phones and blame it on government dissidents.

Do you have a good article on using ham radio to help get the internet back up? I've been learning the fundamentals about ham radio lately, but I would love to help get the internet back up if it ever got shut down. Also, I don't currently have a ham radio unit, so is there a transceiver unit you would recommend (entry level and middle-of-the-road)?

I have heard about setting up a mesh network to have decentralized connections to the internet and also that modems could still work, but that is about the extent of my networking knowledge in a world without the internet.

I don't like you anymore. You reminded me that I live in a condo and cannot have a ham or even a shortwave in this building. LOL. I miss my equipment and the fun of DX'ing.

I agree, a ham is the way to go. You can get your 2 meter license without having to learn morse code these days so it should be easy for everyone to pass the test.
