[liberationtech] Renesys: Syrian Internet Is Off The Air

For Iran's case, the government can cut off the Internet at any time but the problem at this stage which they have tried to solve it is the bank/military/etc. communication. If the Iranian government wants to cut the Internet, their communication will cut as well and because of it, they want to launch the national Internet.

I believe they want to have an Interanet for their communication that they can turn off the Internet in especial situation such as protests.

These blocks survived today's Internet blackout in Syria, but 12 hours after the onset, they, too are off the air. Traceroutes to these blocks now die on Tata's network in New Jersey, and websites hosted in these blocks are no longer responding.

>> Nice article. The information about Iran is inaccurate though. Iran only has 2 ASes which are both controlled by the government. They can easily limit or cut internet access at the times of their choosing and have done so frequently in the aftermath of their 2009 election.
