    With major carriers such as Vodaphone colluding with the Egypt government to deny most access to the internet in Egypt, I'd really be afraid what'd stop this from happening just about anywhere else.

    Surely with so many countries having ruled that internet is a human right, this shouldn't be possible in our civilized country.

    As somebody who uses Vodaphone service(Which is crap), I'm really tempted to switch ISP. Because blocking a whole country like that is just inexcusable Sad
