Snip, Snip... No More Internet

Posted by Eli Sanders on Fri, Dec 19, 2008 at 11:09 AM

Bad news for our readers in Egypt:

CAIRO, Egypt - Egypt's communications ministry says Internet cables in the Mediterranean Sea have been cut, causing massive Internet outages.

The ministry says three Internet cables running through the Mediterranean were cut Friday morning. Throughout the country the Internet is almost completely down or working sporadically.

A reminder that we're all but a few snips of a cable away from returning to the pre-Internet darkness.
