Libya has shut off the Internet again, according to a Google monitoring tool.

As of about 8 a.m. PST Thursday (or 6 p.m. in Tripoli, Libya’s capital), the nation’s Internet traffic began to flatline, and has been at zero since, says Google’s Transparency Report.

Phi Beta Iota: While the world watches Libya, the USA is in the process of making the Internet a monopoly that can charge by the application instead of by the packet.  In brief, Internet “neutrality” is a  fraud in the USA, and the FCC is a front for the very large ISP’s just as the Federal Reserve is a front for the private banks.  Autonomous Internet is something that matters everywhere, including especially the USA.
