Egypt has shut off the internet and every Egyptian provider, every business, bank, Internet cafe, website, school, embassy, and government office that relied on the big four Egyptian ISPs for their Internet connectivity is now cut off from the rest of the world. What will happen to Egypt tomorrow, on the streets and in the credit markets?
This has never happened before in any other world and the unknowns are piling up. CNN reporter Ben Wedeman confirmed Internet is down in Cairo. The Los Angeles Times is also reporting that BlackBerry Internet has been taken offline in Egypt. I hope things will go back to normal soon.
