Libya Government pulls Egypt, throttles Internet to nothing

• 05/03/2011

Just like what we saw in Egypt a few weeks ago, is beginning to happen in Libya where the Libyan Government is suspected of shutting down, or throttling the bandwidth in and out of Libya to such a crawl, it’s useless to go online. There has been some rioting and controversy in Libya lately, and the Government is trying to find ways to minimize the revolt, however shutting down internet traffic may not be the best way to do it as we also saw from the Egypt experience.

Internet sites like YouTube and Google pretty much disappeared from traffic, while Twitter seemed to still keep a connection according to one Twitter user @RamyRaoof. We’ll have to see how this pans out, but it’s usually never good for anyone.
