How To Get Online in Egypt, Even with Government Blocking of the Internet

Steve Kovach at Business Insider says go old school. In Egypt, while internet access has been blocked, old school access via dial up through telephone lines is working.

Lifehacker suggests trying the global dialup ISP Budget Dialup or the French ISP FDN, which is providing free access to users in Egypt.

More from Kovach:

One site worth checking out is the forum OPENMESH that was just launched as a resource for finding ways to help Egyptians get back online. TechCrunch says, they’re looking for people with a tech background who may be able to skirt around the block. If you have any ideas, share them on Twitter using the #OPENMESH hashtag.
