Internet Connections to Sudan Cut off

All online connections to Sudan were abruptly cut off after riots erupted over the ending of fuel subsidies. The government seems to make the move in order to prevent protesters from using social media to organize riots. Although the real reasons are unclear, the Internet monitoring firms point out that it was either a coincidental catastrophic failure of all three independent ISPs and their connections out of Sudan (as well as a terrestrial link into Egypt) or some centrally directed, government action.

In most cases of a failure of this kind which is not governmentally directed (for example, a power failure or a cut cable), ISPs switch to their satellite backups. However, this time it didn’t happen. It was a total shutdown, as happened earlier in Egypt.

Cutting off Internet is normally used by some governments in Middle Eastern countries in order to regain control amid heated protests. As you now, the now-defunct Mubarak regime in Egypt and the Assad regime in Syria have severed online links in attempt to restrict protests. Indeed, cutting international links makes it difficult to upload videos of protests to YouTube, among other things.

The industry observers confirmed that Sudan’s Internet connectivity abruptly dropped to zero. According to media reports, it broke out after the local government removed fuel subsidies, with a number of petrol stations and a university building set on fire. In the meantime, security forces fired teargas to disperse protesters who have demonstrated and set fire to a police station in Khartoum.

Since the protests have gone on for a few days after the country’s Council of Ministers decided to stop the subsidies, the price of fuel immediately doubled. The industry experts point out that the cut in subsidies followed the split of South Sudan to form an independent state two years ago. The latter took more of the main oil-producing territory which had previously been part of Sudan. In addition, the International Monetary Fund has previously told Sudan to cut the subsidies, as they consumed over 3/4 of the government’s total tax revenues. As a result, the people have no access to Internet and are in isolation from the world.

trialNerror avatarEven if it was not a coincidence the ISP's failed, riots have been organized before social media was available. Only difference now is instead of the riot being held this weekend it'll take longer to spread word so it'll be held next weekend. Jeez. How out of touch with reality are these people who are 'in charge'?

Embolism avatarAnother incidence of how the NSA and government thought police plan to use the Internet to their own advantage through denial of service when it suits them.

MrGoodBurn avatarWelcome to the future of America. The US government is getting so out of control that it too will be stooping this low. Just as previous reports of Apple working with US government agencies to allow the shutdown of camera phones whenever they see fit.

Ridiculous how much control we have allowed our government to take from us. This is the next step, and you can know it will happen.

Embolism avatarWe all await the day when some clever person will drop a logic bomb on the NSA storage facilities and stop the insanity in the name of humanity since such repressive regimes as those in the middle east only take their lead from what the American security services have already done before elsewhere.
