Spread the Word: Telecomix Providing Internet to Egypt

by Cord Jefferson

January 30, 2011

Tell all your friends to spread the word far and wide: The Telecomix News Agency, an organization dedicated to informing the public about internet freedom issues, is now providing dial-up modem service to Egypt. Yesterday, the embroiled nation's government shut down all high-speed web service when it was discovered that protesters were galvanizing via e-mail and social networking sites.

The number is +46850009990, and Telecomix is also asking anyone able to provide more modem service to do so. Go here to find out how.
