What is it they want to silence? Updates

Discussion in 'The Pub' at netrider.net.au started by pro-pilot, Feb 3, 2008.

  1. This has not appeared much in our media.

    For the third time in a week, a major comms and internet cable has been severed to the middle east.

    Effectively the region has been shut down completely in terms of the internet, and voice comms seriously disrupted.

    Looks like they are wanting to ensure some information is not going in or out.

  10. Well, The jury's out until they can get down there and look at the failure - crush severing or if it was cut...
