Hackers wouldn't even need to step in.. the government simply can't shut the internet down.. the "internet backbone" consists of six tier one
providers that make up the core infrastructure of the internet, they are corporate entities that provide internet connections to smaller tier
companies .. there are three tiers, tier 2 and tier 3 have far more companies in them.
Those tier 1 companies are:
Level 3 Communications
Cable & Wireless Worldwide
Sprint and AT&T Corporation
To really kill the internet you have to take out those six companies that have data centers all over the world.. every internet connection that is
made, every request to a website.. goes through one or more of those networks.
The only thing the government "controls" are the internet root zones and even then, it doesn't actually operate those servers.. it just approves,
rejects or requests the removal of domain names from the databases.. which would also not kill the internet.
The notion that TPTB have some kind of on off switch for the internet is absurd if you really know how it all works.. You have the six tier one
providers that then provide connections to tier two companies, and tier two provides to tier three .. then you get the spidering out of internet
connections to companies and homes all over the world, like one giant spiderweb,
It's impossible to take out the internet.. you can only disrupt it in pieces.. the only thing that would really kill the net would be a massive EMP
pulse that took out power grids all over the world
... pandora's box has been opened, there's no way of putting the internet back inside.
Anyone who thinks the internet will "POOF" and disappear just doesn't understand how it works.. it was conceived to be resilient with redundancy, and
evolved specifically to have no "central command" .. no single point of failure
